“I haven’t seen Fizz bowling but heard about him a lot from the IPL. But it’s nice to have a couple of left-armers around,” he said.

The 27-year old fast bowler admitted that Mustafizur has earned a lot of respect and he is confident that the young Bangladeshi bowler would do well over the next few years.

“Yes, obviously he is a very young and class bowler and he has got a lot of respect on him. I am sure he is going to do well over the next few years of his career,” Starc added.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza said Mustafizur and Starc are the two best pacers right now in world cricket. Talking about such complement by the opponent captain, Starc said it was humbling.

“It’s pretty humbling. He has (Mashrafe) played a lot of cricket so it’s humbling to hear from another captain,” he said.
