#INDvAUS: Starc issues bold WARNING for Ashwin due to his gesture in Bengaluru Test – We can’t wait to see how Ashwin will respond to this!
During the second Test between India and Australia in Bengaluru, pacer Mitchell Starc bowled a lethal bouncer to opener Abhinav Mukund. The youngster swirled quickly and played an unconvincing hook shot, but earned six runs for it nonetheless.
Not impressed, Starc glared at Mukund and threatened to knock him on the head by pointing to his own forehead.
Later in the same match, Ravichandran Ashwin knocked over Starc’s off stump as India inched closer to victory. This time it was the off-spinner – who along with Mukund hails from Tamil Nadu – who pointed furiously at his forehead in an attempt to get back at his opponent.
Even though Starc walked off with a wry smile on his face that day, it hasn’t taken long for the lanky pacer to share his thoughts on Ashwin’s antics.
Starc, who headed back home injured after the second Test, has a rather ominous warning for the star Indian all-rounder. “I look forward to bowling to Ashwin in Australia,” he said with a laugh. “(I might) take his advice and hit him on the badge,” Starc told The Back Page on Fox Sports.
Ashwin is known to be a firebrand himself, and we can’t wait to hear what he has to say about this warning by Starc.
