It was surprising to see both Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc to be left out of the playing XI in the first Test, but Australia didn’t have to regret the selection as they won the first Test convincingly against the hosts.

Meanwhile, the fast bowler also insisted that he doesn’t have any problem to get left out if his side returns the urn back to Australia.

“We’re here to win the Ashes. We’re not just here to make it on the park. We want to win this Ashes. Whether that’s a different bowling attack each game, or the same through five Test matches, it’s pretty exciting.”

Starc also revealed that it was pretty emotional to see the injury-prone awesome to see Jimmy (Pattinson) back after what he’s been through and I guess similarly what Pat Cummins has been through previously.  James Pattinson finally make his return in the longer format of the game.

“It’s awesome to see Jimmy (Pattinson) back after what he’s been through and I guess similarly what Pat Cummins has been through previously.”

“It’s a while ago now but to have those guys back fit and firing … it was fantastic to see him (Pattinson) playing Test cricket again. Having his body let him down and to come back and play Test cricket again was pretty special. He’s someone who Josh and I have grown up playing with and against, it was great to see him out there. ‘Sidds’ has done the hard work and made it back,” he added.

The fast bowler also believes Australia now have a deadly bowling attack which can do wonders.

“We’ve got a couple of a bit more aggressive guys, a couple of holders there that build pressure and take wickets that way and a couple of guys that are probably a hybrid of both. We’re prepared for all conditions whether it be flat, green, seaming, swinging, slow, fast. Again, it’s exciting to have everyone up and firing and plenty to choose from,” he concluded.
