Mohali track is hard on the bowlers, feels Mitchell Starc

Starc said he enjoyed batting out there but he's more focused on his primarily role of being a bowler. Starc also did not read much into the technical run out of Dhawan early on when at the non-striker's he was found short of crease and a bail was dislodged.

Mohali: Australian pacer Mitchell Starc on Saturday said that the "flat" Mohali track has made the job tough for the bowlers as close to 700 runs have been scored in two days of play in the third cricket Test, here.

Giving a firm reply to Australia's first innings total of 408, India today amassed 283 runs without losing a wicket as debutant Shikhar Dhawan scored a majestic unbeaten 185.

Starc, who himself scored 99 coming at number nine, said the key to success on such wicket was remaining patient and bowling in tandem with a partner.
