Mitchell Starc becomes top Twitter trend as Alyssa Healy slams Indian fan for criticism

Last Updated:

Speed-gun Mitchell Starc trends on Twitter after Australian Women star Alyssa Healy slammed an Indian fan for comparing the cricketer with Mohammed Siraj.

Mitchell Starc


Indian pace merchant Mohammed Siraj, who made his Test debut on the second match of the ongoing series Down Under, claimed his maiden five-wicket haul on Day 4 at the Gabba. Siraj, who was inducted in the Indian side over an injured Mohammad Shami, has impressed one-and-all this summer by outperforming several seasoned bowlers across both sides. Eventually, an Indian fan made a comparison of Siraj’s performance with that of 61-Test veteran Mitchell Starc, only to draw a fitting response from the cricketer’s wife Alyssa Healy.

India vs Australia 4th Test: Alyssa Healy slams fan after unwanted comparison

Australian women cricketer and batting star Alyssa Healy took note of the ‘comparison tweet’ and gave a fitting response to the user. After Mohammed Siraj dismissed Josh Hazlewood to clean up the Australian innings, a Twitter user implied that the young Indian pacer has taken more wickets than Australia’s speed-gun Mitchell Starc in this series.

Alyssa Healy responded back saying that his comparison was not funny and Siraj’s performance only reflects his own “ability and reward for effort…”. Moreover, the dynamic Australian Women opener also responded to another fan on Twitter, saying the Indian pacer “should be praised for his efforts” since he has had an “incredible series”.

Why’s it funny?! Reflects Siraj’s ability and reward for effort…..

Actually no. I’m giving credit to a young Indian bowler who’s had an incredible series and should be praised for his efforts!
