In response to a question about talks with Mitchell Starc, Arun humorously commented: “Definitely nothing about the price.” He emphasized the ongoing conversations about Starc’s strengths and anticipated Starc’s return to form in the near future.

“We have been talking about his strengths. I’m sure you understand what it is and what it takes to be successful. The kind of experience he brings with him having played in all conditions, it is just a matter of time before you see Starc come back into his elements,” Arun added.

The biggest challenge for us – Bharat Arun

Discussing the conditions in Visakhapatnam, Bharat Arun emphasized the team’s preparedness to face any situation, highlighting the presence of both spinners and pacers to tackle the different conditions.

The countryside continues to change like the weather. We have good options. We have extra spinners and quality pacers in the middle. Depending on the conditions tomorrow, we will select the team,” Arun concluded.
