Peter Nevill, the captain of New South Wales (NSW) blues, declared the 2nd innings when Michell Starc was batting on 86*. I was not appreciated by the Australian quick left the field extremely angry and threw his bat away in frustration.
An Amazing comeback effort in vain..
It was an extremely disappointing start from NSW to the match against Tasmanian Tigers Men, where they could only score 64 runs in the first innings. TAS bowlers Jackson Bird and Peter Siddle ripped the NSW batting attack and got seven wickets between them. Mitchell Starc was the highest-scoring batsmen in the first innings with 18 runs to his name. In reply, Tasmania scored 239 runs in 2nd innings, thanks to a very special ton by Jordan Silk. The match was drifting away from the New South Wales Blues, and they had to score big in the 3rd innings.
When NSW openers came out to bat, Daniel Hughes Failed again and got out for a duck. There was a need for a solid partnership to save NSW’s match, and Nick Larkin came to the rescue! Suddenly, NSW was looking strong on the crease, and there were two more centurions for the team. Moises Henriques and Sean Abbott scored centuries (113 and 102*). These big innings from the middle order propelled New South Wales Team to a total above 500 milestones.
Petter Nevill stopped Mitchel Starc of a Century milestone.
The Actual Incident
Mitchel Starc was batting with command alongside Sean Abbott. Both the batters were nearing the century milestone, and the team had already scored well above the 500 marks. Captain Peter Nevill waited for Sean’s century and then declared the innings on 522-6d. Mitchel Starc was batting at 86* at that moment and was also nearing his century. This declaration crushed his hopes of reaching out to a first-class century, and he went off the field dejected and threw his bat in anguish and disbelief.
There were still two days left in the Test Match, and the skipper (Peter Nevill) could easily have spared some time for the Aussie Quick to reach his milestone. All of it didn’t go well with Mitchel Starc, and he displayed his views on the declaration decision in a very angry manner.
