KKR Star Predicts Smaller Totals In T20 World Cup 2024, Backs Bowlers To Shine

kkr star mitchell starc predicts smaller totals in t20 world cup 2024, backs bowlers to shine

Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc was instrumental in KKR's victorious campaign in the Indian Premier League 2024. Starc elevated his game during the playoffs, devastating SRH's top order in both their playoff matches. He will now head to the United States for the T20 World Cup 2024. When asked about the trend of high scores in T20s, Starc predicted it would not occur in the T20 World Cup 2024.

Starc contends that the absence of an Impact Player rule in international cricket will compel teams to field more balanced line-ups, which will reduce high scores. He noted that without a specialist batting all-rounder at No. 8, the T20 World Cup could see more significant performances from bowlers.

"There is an Impact Player Rule here and not in the T20 World Cup. You are going to have to rely more on your all-rounders. You cannot put your batting all-rounder at number 8, like you do in the IPL. I don't think that you will see these kinds of high scores in the T20 World Cup, purely because there will be one less batter," Mitchell Starc said at the post-match press meet after winning the IPL.

Starc also highlighted that the pitches in the Indian Premier League were batting-friendly, which might not be true for the Caribbean islands. Recently, West Indies wickets have been low and slow, favoring spin.

"Batters have been more brave in the powerplay. They are striking the ball better as we have seen in the IPL. Particularly the wickets have been good. They will not be the same in West Indies, it will turn and they will be more tired. In the back end of the tournament, it may spin more and stay low and slow. Hopefully the bowlers play a bit more role in the World Cup than they have played in the IPL," Starc told.

The fast bowler concluded by crediting Gautam Gambhir for KKR's tournament victory. Starc mentioned that Gambhir was determined for KKR to succeed and rejoined the franchise to help them overcome their recent struggles.

"Gautam Gambhir has been fantastic tactically. He obviously wants the franchise to do well, he has spent a lot of time here. He just loves the group to do well. Whether it has been his tactical eye or his observations in training, he has been great. He thoroughly deserves his success with KKR. It was my first experience as a home team in Eden as well. It was much easier to be the home side, it was loud and busy," the Australian star wrapped up.
