Bad News for KKR? Mitchell Starc nursing injury, confirms teammate KS Bharat

Bad News for KKR? Mitchell Starc nursing injury, confirms teammate KS Bharat

KS Bharat confirmed that Mitchell Starc wasn't 100% fit against RCB.

KKR pacer Mitchell Starc gave another poor performance against the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB). The left-arm pacer went for 55 runs in his 3-over quota vs RCB last night. Despite giving away so many runs, Starc held his nerves towards the deciding stage of the match and won the game for KKR. In a recent revelation, it has come to light that Starc was carrying an injury in his hand while playing against the Red Army.

KKR wicket-keeper KS Bharat confirmed that Mitchell Starc wasn’t 100% fit against RCB. Bharat was giving a speech in the dressing room following the 1-run thriller win, during which he mentioned that Starc got injured in his first over.

With injury threat looming on Mitchell Starc, KKR think tank might be a little worried about their pace department. Apart from Starc, the Men in Purple have two Indian pacers including Harshit Rana and Vaibhav Rana. Apart from them, Russell also bowls for KKR but has been a touch expensive.

Despite being second in the points table, the Knight Riders need to get their act together with the ball to ensure a deep playoff run. KKR will next host PBKS at Eden Gardens on Thursday this week, and Mitchell Starc’s availability status is still uncertain.
