Mitchell Starc should change when the ODI World Cup comes. He took 27 wickets to help Australia win the World Cup at home in 2015. He took 22 wickets in the 2019 World Cup. This fast bowler has taken a total of 49 wickets by playing only 18 matches in two World Cups.

Starc is giving a glimpse of returning to the rhythm of the previous two seasons in the India World Cup. He took a hat-trick against the Netherlands in the warm-up match before the World Cup. However, this hat-trick is not in the record books as it is a warm-up match.

Starc had been suffering from a groin injury for some time. He played in 4 of the 5 Ashes matches after the Test Championship final in England. He picked up a shoulder injury towards the end of the tour, though then missed the tour of South Africa with a groin injury. After that, the left-arm pacer did not play in the first two ODIs of the India tour. Returned to the field with the last and third ODI of the series in Rajkot. 14.2

The warm-up match at Thiruvananthapuram was reduced to 23 overs due to rain. After winning the toss and batting first in the 23 over match, Australia scored 166 runs for 7 wickets in Steve Smith's fifty. In the first over to chase this run, the Netherlands fell under Starc's cannon. Starc's first victim was Dutch opener Max O'Dowd. On the fifth ball of the first over of the innings, Max O'Dowd was lbw in the inswinging delivery of this Australian fast bowler. Wesley Baresi, who dropped at number three on the next ball, had no answer to Starc's bowling. He returned boldly.

Starc's hat-trick was completed in the third over of the innings and the first ball of his second over. Starc's inswinging yorker was bowled by veteran bass de Lidie. After losing three consecutive wickets, the Netherlands lost their way chasing 166 runs. Netherlands scored 84 for 6 in 14.2 overs before play was stopped due to rain.
