Sydney, Nov. 2 (ANI): In a revelation that likens Mitchell Starc to George Clooney's frequent-flyer-earning character in the Hollywood blockbuster film 'Up in the Air', the Australian pacer is set to play for the first Test at the Gabba next week after having astonishingly spent only seven nights at home in the past eight months.
The 22-year-old left-armer, who has been on the move since Australia's tour of the West Indies in March, has a travel itinerary this year that could confirm him as a poster boy for a generation of modern cricketers.
He has since enjoyed a county and Australia A stint in England, a limited-overs series against Pakistan in the UAE, the World T20 in Sri Lanka and the Champions League with the Sydney Sixers.
"We were [in the Caribbean] for however long and flew back for one day, [I] packed the bags up and washed everything and went off to England only to be turned around and sent home," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Starc, as saying.
According to the paper, after three days in Sydney to arrange his papers, he was off again until August, and when returned from England it was not for long.
"I was home for one more night, then off to the team camp in Darwin for five. [Then] back home for another night and packed my bags again and set off for Dubai," he said.
After playing in the NSW team for the Sheffield Shield match against Queensland in Brisbane, Starc and the other three Blues players in the Test squad - Michael Clarke, Shane Watson and David Warner - would link up with the Australian team, for the final Test against the Bulls. (ANI)
