Gillespie backs Starc-Hazlewood to become Oz's greatest pace duo

Melbourne [Australia], Nov.30 : Former Australian pacer Jason Gillespie has predicted that Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood will one day emerge as the best fast bowling combination the country has ever produced.

The performances of Starc and Hazlewood were the only positives for Australia during their recently-concluded three-match Test series against South Africa which the hosts went on to lose 1-2.

The duo finished the home series as the first and the third highest wicket taker, with Hazlewood grabbing 17 wickets at an average of 22 and Starc taking 14 wickets at 30.

And Gillespie believes the pair would soon surpass all to become Australia's greatest pace duo.
