The second ODI between India and Australia is happening in Vizag. India has been put into trouble early, with Mitchell Starc picking three quick wickets.

In the first ODI, too, Starc troubled the Indian batters. It was a similar case in the second encounter, too. Indian top-order is always vulnerable to left-arm pacers and Starc is one of the best in the business. Hence, the likes of Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Shubman Gill and Suryakumar Yadav lost their wickets to the Aussie veteran. In fact, the wickets of Rohit and SKY came off successive deliveries.
Starc has been good in the 50-over World Cups. It is the World Cup year and him performing well in Indian conditions is a massive bonus for the Australian Team. They can now build their attack around him, with Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood also likely to join the party. If Starc is at his best in the World Cup, Australia can get close to the trophy. He should also be injury-free as he has recently returned from a fitness issue. In this regard, the performance of Starc is critical in the next few months for the Aussies.

Have to say that Starc has been very lenient with the hat-trick ball on both occasions. His deadly incoming yorker went missing. If he nails it, no batter can survive! #INDvsAUS #INDvAUS #Cricket #CricketTwitter #MitchellStarc
