T20 World Cup 2021: Although Australia won the T20 World Cup for the first time, the match was a nightmare for only one player on the team. He’s not Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc. He will never forget this match in his career. Starc ran heavily in the match against New Zealand. He holds the record for most runs scored in a knockout match in tournament history. In this crucial match on Sunday, Starc scored 60 runs in his four overs spell at an economy rate of 15.00. He could not take a single wicket.
Before him, Sri Lanka’s Lasith Malinga was the highest run scorer in a T20 World Cup knockout match. He scored 54 runs in 4 overs in the 2012 final against the West Indies. This is the second time he has scored more than 50 runs in international T20s. He had earlier crossed 50 runs in the 2014 T20 World Cup. He scored 50 in the match against the West Indies at the 2014 World Cup. Starc’s four overs left Australia with a huge loss.
Starc gave up nine runs in the first over. He gave up 19 runs in the second over. Starc’s third over was his most expensive over. In it he gave up 22 runs. At the same time he ended the spell by giving up 10 runs in the last over. Stark has a good record against New Zealand. But no one expected him to run like this. Starc scored 28 runs and took six wickets for New Zealand in the 2015 World Cup. At the same time, he has a history of giving up only 26 runs for five wickets in the 2019 World Cup.
