Could Zampa be the wildcard to replace Starc for Sydney?

    News Corp understands Starc is all but certain to miss the final Test of the summer at the SCG and will be rehabbing his finger in a bid to be right for the start of the Indian Test tour next month.Starc could still bowl if required in the second innings in Melbourne, and may not do further damage to his bowling finger on his left hand if he does.However, Australia would be mad to risk Starc unless they need to and the team will be hoping the batting unit can build a big enough lead that the left-armer can be rested for the rest of the match.Starc’s injury opens the door for the potential that Lance “The Wild Thing” Morris could make his Test debut in Sydney.Although Josh Hazlewood may also be fit to push his case for inclusion, or selectors may consider a second spinner like Ashton Agar, Adam Zampa or Mitchell Swepson if conditions at the SCG look like turning.
