Aussie speedster Mitchell Starc loves bowling with a pink ball in Test cricket. The veteran is the first bowler to take 50 wickets in day & night Test cricket. Starc dismissed four players in the first innings of the rival team.

The Ashes 2021-22 has seen the revival of the left-armer, who was struggling for wickets in the last few series. The 31-year old dismissed Rory Burns (4 runs), Dawid Malan (80 runs), Jos Buttler (zero), and Stuart Broad (9 runs) to reach the milestone.

He achieved the landmark in his ninth pink-ball Test. His teammate Nathan Lyon has been the best spinner with 32 wickets under his belt.

In overall pink ball Tests, pacers have taken 369 wickets, whereas spinners have dismissed 119 batsmen.
