Mitchell Starc continued his rivalry with Kieron Pollard following an altercation during a match in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Starc hinted that the feud between the two players was not yet solved, while also mocking Pollard’s Test career.

 

When asked whether he was looking forward to the next Australia-West Indies match, Starc’s reply was to taunt Pollard. “If it’s a Test match, you won’t see Kieron there — he won’t be playing,” he said. Starc went on to say that he wanted nothing to do with Pollard after the incident. “I don’t plan on talking to him…All the cricketers know how Kieron is. He can do what he likes. But I am still going to be trying to bounce him and hit him in the head whenever we are playing.”
