Mitchell Starc delivered a staggering performance for New South Wales by earning a match-winning 10-wicket haul against Tasmania.
Starc only played one Test in the recently concluded engrossing Ashes series and was seen warming the bench for the most part of the England tour but he looks more than ready for the upcoming two Tests with Pakistan.
The lanky left-arm bowling spearhead decimated the opposition with a fifer in first-innings and then didn't drop his intensity in the second innings by bagging another fifer.
When he was done with his carnage on Tasmania, his side only needed 45 runs which they got to in no time and registered a domineering win.
Starc will now gear up for Australia's international duties and show his dexterity against Sri Lanka and Pakistan in the T20Is.
Not long ago, Starc lit up the field in the ICC 2019 World Cup by taking 27 wickets and tumbled record books with an outstanding average of 18.59.
He bagged a couple of fifers on the big stage after his magnum opus in the ICC 2015 World Cup where he was the player of the tournament and one of the most important cogs in Australia's World Cup-winning team.
In 85 ODIs, he has taken 172 wickets at an average of 21 which undoubtedly puts him right at the top of the bowler's list.
Pakistan would be wary of Starc's bodyline attack and toe crushing yorkers at searing 150kph that often gets him wickets at his will.
