Australia’s Mitchell Starc ruled out of fourth Ashes Test in Melbourne through injury


Australia pace bowler Mitchell Starc has been ruled out of the fourth Ashes Test against England with a bruised heel.

Starc has been struggling with the injury to his right foot and he will now be replaced by Jackson Bird for the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne.

Australia hold an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series following victory in Perth but England will be looking to avoid a second successive whitewash in Australia by picking up at least one victory at either the MCG or the New Year’s Test in Sydney.
