Cricket: Australia's Starc can pass 300 wickets - McDermott

NEW DELHI, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 21st july,2016) - Former Australia cricketer and bowling coach Craig McDermott has heaped praise on Mitchell Starc ahead of a Test series in Sri Lanka, predicting the pacer will easily cross the 300-wicket mark.

Starc has bagged 91 wickets from 25 Tests so far in his international career, and Australian coach Darren Lehmann is among those who have already said the 26-year-old can eventually reach the milestone. "I think that's underselling him," McDermott told AFP this week in New Delhi where he is promoting his sports academy. "I think Mitchell can certainly sail past the 300-wicket mark and can get many more." "And I would love to be there to shake his hand when he passes 300 because it's a hell of a milestone for any bowler," said McDermott, who recently quit as Australia's bowling coach.
