Brisbane, May 28: Australia’s coach Justin Langer has said fit-again seamer Mitchell Starc’s workload will be carefully maged during the tri-tions series against the West Indies and South Africa starting next week in the Caribbean. Left-arm seamer Starc has recently returned to action after being sidelined for six months following ankle surgery last year, reports CMC.

And though he has been impressive in the nets and bowling at full tilt during training sessions, Langer said it would be important not to over-bowl him. “He’s had such an impact on intertiol cricket over the last few years, but we’ll have to mage him well as well - he hasn’t bowled for a long time,” said Langer on Friday, who is standing-in for regular head coach Darren Lehman. “Coming from no cricket, and that’s including no practice games, straight into intertiol cricket, he’s got some challenges ahead, but it’s not just about this tour for him, it’s about the next very busy year.”

Starc has been outstanding for Australia over the last year, picking up 22 wickets at the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, to finish as the highest wicket-taker. Overall, the 26-year-old has taken 90 wickets from 46 One-Day Intertiols and needs just ten wickets in the next games, to become the fastest to triple figures.’
