Sydney, July 11: He is a fearsome left-arm pacer who can demolish the opposition in one spell, if he gets into rhythm. 

On many occasions including previous World Cup finals, he has delivered the goods for Australia when it mattered most and won summit clashes.

But in the recent ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2024, Mitchell Starc was left out of Australia's playing XI in their crucial Super Eight match against Afghanistan. 

In his place, slow-left arm spin-all-rounder Ashton Agar was roped in. The Aussies lost the match by 21 runs at St Vincent in the Caribbean. The result of that shocking defeat did shatter Australia's campaign in T20 World Cup 2024.

That surprise decision of leaving Starc out of Australia's playing XI, did stun many former cricket experts. 

After the World Cup is over, Starc himself has confessed that he was unhappy to be left out against Afghanistan. The pain was doubled as the Afghans won that match and it did affect team's chances for the semifinals, he stated. 

After losing to Afghanistan, the Aussies also lost to India in the Super Eight, which confirmed their exit from the World Cup 2024. Afghanistan made into the semi-finals with eventual champions India from their group.

Though Afghanistan were humbled by South Africa in their semis, but India continued their invincible journey in the tournament and lifted T20 World Cup trophy.
