Although, Australia has missed yet another chance to secure Border-Gavaskar Trophy by losing the first two games, Steven Smith-led side will have a chance to retain some respect when they will square off with Team India in the third Test match of the series, in Indore. While Australia will miss the services of the likes of Pat Cummins and David Warner in the squad, Mitchell Starc is likely to make a comeback in the squad.

Notably, Starc has been on the injury list since Australia's arrival for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, and after being on the two Tests, the premium Australian fast bowlers have admitted that he is looking forward to play in India, although is not 100 per cent fit.

"I am feeling fine. There is going to be a level of discomfort for a while. I don’t think it's going to be a 100 per cent for a fair while, but it's good enough. The ball is coming out quite nicely and I am bowling at full tilt. It won't be the first Test that I will play some sort of discomfort. If I would have played when I was 100 per cent, I would have only played five to ten Tests," Starc said.

The left-arm pacer further claimed that it’s been a challenging situation for the Australian seamers in India. "We do see spin obviously playing a huge part, but the Indian quicks have still played a particular role with the new ball. And if it does reverse, they have brought the stumps into play.

Starc also asserted that spin plays a huge role in sub-continent but admitted that he has an important role with the spinners to take those 20-wickets. In the absence of Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Cameron Green are likely pace options for Australia in the game.

Commenting on making a comeback after an injury, Starc said that he had good 8-10 days off after the injury. "There is no concern at all. I had spent good time training after the injury. I have been bowling. Workload or body-wise, no concerns. I am happy with where my body is at. It's now about executing the skills," Starc added.
