Sporting News – Not for the first time this week, Alyssa Healy has gone into bat for her husband Mitchell Starc after a chorus of Test legends destroyed the Australia spearhead’s performance in Adelaide.

Summary

  • Not for the first time this week, Alyssa Healy has gone into bat for her husband Mitchell Starc after a chorus of Test legends destroyed the Australia spearhead’s performance in Adelaide.
  • But he has come under heavy criticism, including from Shane Warne, who labelled Starc’s work with the second new ball in both innings in Adelaide ‘atrocious’ in his News Limited column on Friday.
  • Former paceman Mitchell Johnson earlier questioned Starc’s body language on day four of the loss, while Adam Gilchrist also slammed the left-armer’s spells with the second new ball.
  • Healy’s tweet, posted before Warne’s column was published, read, ‘I’ll just leave this here …’, accompanied with an excerpt revealing Starc boasts the highest strike-rate (50.2) of any Australian bowler with at least 100 wickets in Test history.
  • Starc will have the chance to let his bowling do the talking when the second Test against India gets underway in Perth on Friday at 1.20pm (AEDT).
