AUS v IND 2018-19: Angry Mitchell Starc shows displeasure with Rishabh Pant running on the pitch

Starc was annoyed with Pant running in the danger area on the pitch.

Mitchell Starc was not happy with Pant running on the pitch

An unhappy Mitchell Starc turned hostile to Indian batsman Rishabh Pant when he ran in the danger area on the pitch while taking a run. Starc was clearly irritated after a tiring day, and Pant running on the pitch for the second time pissed him off.

The Aussie quick was bowling his 27th over of the match and he couldn't hold it in seeing Pant doing it again. Looking at the umpire Ian Gould, he said, ”He’s f***ing done it again mate.” Then he looked back at Pant and said, “How dumb are ya?!” 

The next ball expressed Starc's frustration. It was a delivery with a pace of 147.5 kmph and Pant could only glove it for a single down the third man.

Eventually, the pacer got Pant in his last over of the first innings, after being hit for a four. In an attempt to pull Starc over midwicket, Pant got a top edge and Usman Khawaja caught him easily. He was dismissed on 39 runs off 76 deliveries. 

Here is the video of the incident:
