Australian fast bowling star Mitchell Starc was seen bowling with a bleeding hand during the third innings of the 2nd Test between Australia and South Africa at Melbourne Cricket Ground on Wednesday, December 28.
Earlier, several reports suggested that the veteran pacer will miss the Sydney Test against South Africa due to a finger injury that he picked on Day 1 of the Boxing Day Test.
The 32-year-old dislocated the tip of his bowling arm’s middle finger while attempting a catch at long-on during the first innings of the match. However, despite being in severe pain, the senior pacer came out to bowl.
Notably, Australia’s young all-rounder Cameron Green, who bagged a five-wicket haul in the first inning was ruled out from bowling due to a broken bone in his finger but despite being hurt in the first innings, Starc accepted the challenge.

Earlier, Cameron Green, who injured his right index finger on the second day of the ongoing Test came out to bat with an injured finger and resumed his innings. He smashed an unbeaten half-century and put a 117-run stand with Alex Carey before Pat Cummins declared the innings at 575/8.
