"Josh and I have played about 10 years of cricket together, so we've played a lot of cricket together.

"Patty has played some white ball cricket with us but he's had his issues with his back as well, so it's nice to see him back in full flight for the last few months.

"That's been the plan for a long time now and the plan hasn't changed for the last few weeks and I don't think it will change next week," Starc said.
