Aussie Starc eager to get going for RCB

Australia

Australia fast bowler Mitchell Starc says he is fit and raring to get his IPL season started for the Royal Challengers Bangalore after recovering from the knee injury that he sustained during the World Cup.

Starc was his country's spearhead during the global campaign, capturing 22 wickets as the Aussies stormed to their fifth title on home soil.

The left-arm bowler though picked up knee injury in the final of the showpiece event meaning he missed the Royal Challengers first three matches of the current IPL season, of which they have lost two.

On the eve of their match against the Chennai Super Kings on Wednesday, Starc said: "I have got to bowl in training now, so we will see how it goes. But the knee feels good and if it was up to me I am available to play.

"I was disappointed not to be here at the start of the IPL, but I am here now so I will try and catch up, and take a few wickets when I get the chance.

"I have had three weeks off from cricket, so it is nice to train with the team and be back in Bangalore with boys."
