new Delhi. Where the Australian cricket team’s stormy bowler Mitchell Starc made his debut in Test cricket in the year 2011, he has now made a place in a very special club by completing his ‘triple century’ of wickets. Stark achieved this feat in the first Test match of the ongoing 3-match series against South Africa (AUS vs SA). Experienced pacer Stark got his 300th wicket in the longest format of cricket by bowling Proteas batsman Rassie Van der Dussen and registered his name in the record books.
Stark brought his number of wickets to 300 in Test matches by bowling Rasi van der Dussen on his inswinger on the second day of the first Test match being played at Brisbane’s Gabba ground. This is the same ground where Stark made his Test debut against New Zealand. Stark needed 4 wickets before this Test match to complete the triple century of his wickets. He took 3 wickets in the first innings while in the second innings he registered a big record in his name with the dismissal of Dusan.
