About Mitchell Starc
|Name||Mitchell Aaron Starc|
|Age||28 (DOB: 30 January 1990)|
|Born||Baulkham Hills, NSW, Australia|
|Height||196 cm (6ft 5in)|
Starc showed plenty of promise early in his career and debuted for his native New South Wales Blues in the Sheffield Shield in 2009 at just 19 years of age.
A number of wickets and some very handy contributions with the bat at the bottom of the order on the domestic scene followed in both ODI and 4-day formats, and, after a number of injuries crippled the Australian bowling ranks, Starc was a surprise call-up to the Australian One Day International squad for the Indian tour in 2010.
His debut was one to forget – going wicketless without having a bat.
The selectors kept the faith with Starc, picking him 12 months later to debut in the test side against New Zealand for a two-test series. He would then bounce in and out of the side before becoming a mainstay from 2014.
The 2015 World Cup was Starc’s coming out party. In the form of his life and over all injury niggles, the opening quick was recognised as the man of the tournament, which Australia famously won on home turf for the first time.
Announcing himself as a true star of the game, Starc led Australia in wickets across all forms of first-class and international cricket for the 2014–15 summer with 60.
After lean returns in England during the 2015 Ashes defeat, can Starc lead a home turf revival this summer?

Teams and franchises Mitchell Starc plays for
In February 2017 Starc pulled out of his IPL contract with the Royal Challengers Bangalore, stating that he wished to focus on his international career. He no longer has an IPL contract and may go up in the next player auction. The deal he surrendered was worth close to $1 million a year.
In the Big Bash League, Starc is signed on to play with the Sydney Thunder, but because of his heavy international workload, may not see much action in the shortest format over the summer.
On the Australia’s domestic scene, Starc plays for New South Wales in all formats, including the Sheffield Shield and the JLT Cup.
