Edit: The bowling conditions were not the greatest in the WI if i remember correctly, but we should get a look at him in one of the tests

Both of these players coming along very nicely..................
And I dare say some of those calling Starc trash earlier in thread might be a little more quiet, he's probably one of the best short format bowlers in the world at present.
No-one was calling Starc trash iirc, they just said he had bowled plenty of trash up to that stage which was true.

Shiny new toy for Boult; swinging it both ways now. It'll be interesting to see how wisely he uses that.

Starc exponentially less likely to spontaneously snap in half mid-pitch for mine.
He's from NZ. No matter the injury history, NZ quicks have a bad end....
TC raises a good point.
Starc's action and body appear more suited to a long career than Boult's. Touch wood, Boult has been pretty good since his almost continuous injuries from 2008 - 2010. Long may it continue and please don't let this be a jinx.
I don't get it. Boult has a nice easy action and is by all accounts the fittest player in the team.
He's slowly putting on muscle and is not as skinny as he was a couple of years ago.
I see no reason to predict injury.
I actually think him being slight is an advantage. Less stress on his joints. Bigger guys are much more likely to get injured IMO.
