Mitchell Starc (l).

Australia fast bowler Mitchell Starc brushed aside the criticism from former leg-spinner Shane Warne as the legend once again targeted the pacer.

Warne had criticised Starc’s performance in the first Test against India in Adelaide, calling the left-armer’s two-over spell with the second new ball on Day Four as “atrocious”.

Starc had drawn criticism from various quarters for his lack of precision and uninspiring body language. Former team-mate Mitchell Johnson also noted the subdued body language of Starc as he took five wickets in the Adelaide defeat.

Warne had famously chastised Starc for ‘looking a bit soft’ in his body language back in 2014. The left-arm pacer then raised his game exponentially, upstaging established left-am quick Johnson.

After the latest criticism from Warne, Starc decided to not respond to the remarks.

“I still don’t know what he said,” Starc said on Fox Cricket‘s ‘Cricket 360’ program. “I’ve been told about it.

“If I keep listening to Warney I may as well retire. I’ll just keep going about my stuff as I have done over the weeks.”
