Speaking from Sydney ahead of the third ODI Starc said: “I think we’ve got the right formula, we have just got to get that performance together.

“We have been off at the start of our bowling innings and we haven’t put a full batting innings together, so I think it is about doing the basics and the execution right.

“We’ve definitely got the personnel and talent to do it, it’s just the execution [that needs working on]. But with this group, we definitely haven’t performed our best with bat and ball.

“We have the chance to do that tomorrow to kick off this series and try and win it 3-2.”

Having lost in Melbourne and Brisbane Australia need to win Sunday’s third ODI at the SCG in order to have any hope of winning the series.

Starc added: “We’ve got some work to do, every game in this series is a Grand Final now. We haven’t played our best with bat and ball and I guess they have.

“It’s a chance for us to get together, come to the SCG tomorrow and play some good cricket, and hopefully get ourselves back in the series.”
