Australia's bowling coach Craig McDermott says the Aussies are positive that they will have paceman Mitchell Starc back from injury for the tour of New Zealand early next year.
Career-best bowling figures from seamer Josh Hazlewood and a gritty 49 from Shaun Marsh steered Australia to a tense three-wicket win in the third and final Test against New Zealand in Adelaide, and give the hosts a two-nil series victory.
Australia captain Steve Smith gave special praise to seamer Josh Hazlewood and batsman Shaun Marsh after the Aussies completed a tense three-wicket victory over New Zealand in the first ever day/night Test at the Adelaide Oval.
New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum said day/night Test cricket is a 'great concept', but wants the pitch to have less grass on it as it helps the pink ball with swing and seam movement.
Australia fast bowler Mitchell Starc says there is 'no point' in having surgery on his ankle now, as it will rule him out of the home summer, and he'll look at it after the World Twenty20 in March.
