Mitchell Starc has been cleared to play in Australia's T20 World Cup encounter against Sri Lanka tonight, but coach Justin Langer admitted the team "were worried" after the quick was struck at training this week. The pacer was hit just above the right knee while bowling during a net session in Dubai on Tuesday evening, and appeared to be in evident discomfort. Starc bowled yesterday with a compression sleeve on his right leg, a positive sign that the injury was not a serious one.
