Mitchell Starc Breaks Down, Out of Series

Just like Jimmy Anderson... he too breaks down...

Goes to show how hard it is to be a fast bowler in India... and why Umesh is a gem...he has bowled throughout the entire season with sustained hostility and pace....

I hope he is not wasted in masala T20s and ODIs...

Feel Starc is just too tall to be a fast bowler nearly Bruce Reid territory

24 needed with a bunny coming in at 11? No problem!

Yep Umesh has the perfect physique for a FAST bowler.... kinda like Brett Lee or Dale Steyn...

It is not just that Strac is tall...but he has an awkward action like Bruce Reid who you mention or Ashish Nehra... is just too uncompact...there are good compact actions among tall men that allows them not to be prone to breaking down...think Curtly Ambrose or Courtney Walsh...
