Mitchell Starc on Thursday became the most prolific bowler at a single World Cup campaign, surpassing his countryman Glenn McGrath.

The Australian pacer made Jonny Bairstow his 27th victim of World Cup 2019, which means that he now has more wickets at the event than the great McGrath (26) had at the 2007 World Cup.

Starc has had a stellar World Cup 2019 campaign and is leading the bowling chart by a country mile.
