Patience is a virtue and cricket is a sport of patience, said Mitchell Starc.
“You can’t just throw your hand up and say you’re a winner.”
Starc, who played his last Test in Australia on Thursday, is the captain of New Zealand’s Test team and the second-highest run scorer in the world, behind only South Africa’s Steve Smith.
His performance at the ICC World Twenty20 in Brisbane is the best of his Test career.
It was a breakthrough for Starc who had been a long-term target of the Australian selectors and was expected to go to the World Cup with them.
Starc made a handful of catches and took six wickets.
“I think it’s a fantastic start for the players and for me,” he said.
“Hopefully it’s the start of something.
I’m looking forward with them to coming here and playing with the New Zealans. “
But I’m really looking forward to it.
He said he was confident in the team. “
They’re really good players, they’ve been really consistent all year and they have that quality of winning, so it’ll be great to play against them.”
He said he was confident in the team.
Starcy has played in three Tests, including the final in Brisbane. “
We just need to keep playing well.”

Australia will start the tournament with an unbeaten six in their four-Test series against the New Zelandians.
“The next couple of weeks we’ll be testing some new things and it’s going really well,” Starc said.
“It’s been really good.
We’re going to have to keep going and try and get a couple of wins against the good teams, which will hopefully get us some points.”
