Australian veteran Mitchell Starc had a memorable day with the ball as he recorded a clinical four-wicket haul in Kolkata Knight Riders' tenth group stage match against Mumbai Indians at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

After cleaning Ishan Kishan with a ripperStarc returned for a match-winning spell to scalp three wickets and end the match in the penultimate over.

The experienced pacer had a torrid start to the match as MI batter Tim David hit him for a huge six over the square leg fence. However, he made a remarkable comeback by dismissing the dangerous man with his next ball.

It was a harmless full throw of Starc as David muscled him with shearing power in the offside. However, he only managed to hit straight to Shreyas Iyer, who took an easy catch and ended his knock. As soon as Starc got that coveted breakthrough, his wife Alyssa Healy was thrilled.

Continuing his assault against MI, Starc got a few more wickets to shake up the five-time champions. As a result, the hosts were bundled out for a paltry total of 145 runs, losing the match by 24 runs.
