Australian player Mitchell Starc questions Bazball’s feasibility before the Ashes

 Star Fast The bowler of the Australian cricket team, Mitchell Starc, has doubts about the ability of the England cricket team to sustain their aggressive posture in the face of adversity and also said that the Three Lions' attacking play makes the Ashes series interesting. England has had a turnaround in fortunes ever since Brendon McCullum became the head coach of the team and Ben Stokes became the captain. They have played an aggressive brand of cricket termed "BazBall'. Last year, during the 3-0 win by the Pakistan cricket team, Ben Stokes and co. shattered a slew of records.

The five Tests between Australia and England will be played from June 16 until July 31. Despite what England throws at them, the Australians are ready to play their own game.

Starc said, "If they are 5–50, are they still coming out and swinging? Dunno."

He further added, "They've been able to maintain it for some time. Fair credit to them; it's not just a one-off. It makes for an exciting Ashes contest. We'll see if that's the way they're going to play and how it goes. From the guys I've spoken to this week, we're not really buying too much into it."
