Richardson, who was brought in as a replacement for Starc, in particular, struggled as the batters took him to the cleaners. He conceded 48 runs in his 4 overs and took one wicket but his expensive spell was one of the main reasons behind Australia being on the back foot.

Starc notably, didn’t have the tournament as he would’ve wanted. The left-arm pacer could manage to pick up only 3 wickets in the tournament so far. Also, Starc doesn’t play in the franchise T20 league to keep him fit for the national side.
