On Monday, Rabada's hearing on his much-talked about ban stretched for over six hours. The final verdict will be out soon. But, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/Australia" target="_blank">Australia</a> aren't quite comfortable, either, as there is concern regarding the availability of <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/Mitchell-Starc" target="_blank">Mitchell Starc</a> for the Cape Town Test. Starc missed out on the practice session due to a calf niggle. It remains to be seen whether he will sit out for the penultimate Test, starting Thursday. <p></p> <p></p>However, opening batsman Cameron Bancroft sounded optimistic of Starc's participation: "Sometimes the bowlers just work their way into the games a little bit differently. His preparation might be a little bit different going into this game. I think in the past, he's bowled a couple of days out and had that third day as a bit of a rest day. Hopefully he'll bowl [on Tuesday], I'm sure he'll be ok." <p></p> <p></p>On the other hand, Mitchell Marsh was seen bowling during a centre-wicket practice on Monday. Marsh had finished the second Test as an injury concern, but appears to be on the road to recovery after the mid-series break. <p></p> <p></p>"He's had four really important days off as it has been for everyone, especially our fast bowlers who've spent a lot of time bowling over the past six months for us," said Bancroft. "Mitch has been working through his stuff and had a bowl. I assume he'll pick that up leading up to the game on Thursday and I'm sure he'll be fine," added Bancroft. <p></p> <p></p>South Africa and Australia will start the third Test, at Cape Town, from March 22 with the series levelled at 1-1.
