Mitchell Starc surpasses Wasim Akram to become world’s highest run scorer

ODI World Cup 2023 AUS vs AFG: The 2023 ODI World Cup will be played today between Australia and Afghanistan at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Batting first, Afghanistan scored 291 runs and set a target of 292 runs for the Kangaroos. Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc now has a special record in his name. Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram.

Mitchell Starc took 1 wicket for 70 runs in 6 overs against Afghanistan. Starc achieved this feat by dismissing Afghanistan captain Hashmatullah Shahidi in the 38th over. Now Starc has become the only bowler to bowl to 26 players in the World Cup. Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram has also commented on this issue. Before Starc in this list, Wasim was at first place with 25 balls.

Chasing the target of 292 runs, Australia got off to a bad start. Australia lost its last two wickets for just 42 runs. Travis Head and Mitchell Marsh are playing with 24 runs each. Kangaroo team’s innings seems to be faltering in the first over. It looks like the Australian team is under a bit of pressure.

But Australia has the right opportunity to reduce the pressure and win. However it will not be that easy. Afghanistan’s star spinner is yet to come who has hit sixes for big teams in this World Cup. Ibrahim Zadran has scored a brilliant century while batting for Afghanistan today. He played an inning of 129 runs.
