As predictable as sunrise, Mitchell Starc earning a wicket with the new ball in the first over is a usual feat. The left-arm quick returned to the playing XI as he struck once again against Bangladesh in their first Super Eight clash in North Sound, Antigua after outsmarting Tanzid Hasan Tamim.

Winning the rain-delayed toss and opting to field first, Australia eanred the first breakthrough in the opening iver itself, courtesy of a jaffa produced by Mitchell Starc. He was one of the two changes from the Scotland game and struck immediately by deriving early lately movement as Tanzid failed to bring the bat down on time. 

Following a yorker outside the off and a low full-toss to kick off the contest, Starc dished a fuller one right on the money to Tanzid. The southpaw failed to negate the outswing from the 34-year-old as he was late to get behind the line of the ball and the white rock kissed the inside edge to gush onto the stumps, drawing the first blood. Tanzid was utterly shattered with the dismissal, departing for a bronze duck and Starc surpassed Sri Lankan legend Lasith Malanga to top the wicket-taking charts in World Cup (T20 and ODI overall) events. The Twitterverse is used to seeing the left-arm pacer’s new ball mastery and here’s how they reacted.
