  • Tension was evident in the Sydney Test against India last month when Saker revealed he’d had “aggressive” conversations with his fast bowlers for not following team plans.
  • Starc, who injured his pectoral muscle while ripping through the Sri Lankans in Canberra last week, also praised NSW bowling coach Adams for helping him rediscover his best, not Saker.
