Mitchell Starc will not be part of the team in the second T20 match against Sri Lanka. Jhye Richardson is expected to take the vacant position. Because during the first match his index finger was cut from the spike of the shoe. Play was halted after five balls with Starc in apparent discomfort, receiving injury treatment before leaving the field after the over.

Cricket.com.au revealed that Starc strangely cut a finger on his own shoe while bowling which seemed a weird incident as said by Jos Hazlewood.

Remarkably, Starc came back on the field and delivered an astonishing 3-26 in his four overs as Sri Lanka were bowled out for 128. “It was a commendable thing to come back and finish the spell and take three wickets,” David Warner said after the game.

Asked about Mitchell Starc’s condition for the second game, he said: “I think they will assess tonight whether he needs stitches or can he stick to it and be ready tomorrow But I probably doubt it.”

This is Australia’s second injury blow in 24 hours after Sean Abbott was sent home after breaking a finger in the nets. Abbott was part of Australia’s T20 squad but left for home on Wednesday after a net bowler injured his hand.

Unless two specialist spinners are preferred, Jhye Richardson is in the squad and is the most likely replacement for Starc, in which case Mitchell Swepson will be called in.

Australia also have the option of opting for the Australia A squad, which will begin their four-match campaign against Sri Lanka A with a 50-over match this afternoon, but an international return for either Richardson or Swepson is most likely . Uncapped fast bowlers Aaron Hardy and Mark Stakey, Test all-rounder Cameron Green and Ashes hero Scott Boland are the fast bowlers currently with the Australia A team.

Richardson, who is in both Australia’s T20 and A teams, has not played since the Marsh Cup final in early March, where he suffered a hamstring injury and his last match for the national team was Australia’s home match against Sri Lanka in February. Was during the T20 series.
