Michell Starc said that he spoke to Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood and explained: “I’ve finally listened to Pat and Josh, I guess. They’re two fantastic exponents of the wobble seam or whatever you want to call it. Having spoken to them over the last few years and being able to add that string to my bow is something that’s helped develop my bowling, and not just be someone who can only swing it or bowl fast.”
“I’ve now got another option to try to beat the bat both ways,” says Mitchell Starc
Mitchell Starc further talked about wobble seam and said that he has now another option to beat the bat both ways. Elaborating the same, he said:
“I’ve now got another option to try to beat the bat both ways, or like (Headingley) it can be a wicket-taking ball depending on who I’m bowling to, or where I’m bowling as well.”
Ashes 2023 currently stands at 2-1 with Australia in the lead. The next match is slated to take place in Manchester from 19th July.
