Mitchell Starc has been the bowler at the centre of the pre-Ashes hype but the left-armer insists Josh Hazlewood holds the key to the Australian attack once the series springs into life next Thursday at the Gabba.

The trio of Starc, Hazlewood and Pat Cummins were all rested as NSW took on Queensland in the Sheffield Shield match at Allan Border Field. They campaigned strongly in the nearby nets as the Blues back-up brigade rolled the Bulls for just 183.

Starc has been a nightmare for shield bats over the first two rounds, taking 17 wickets at 12.70, including a pair of hat-tricks against a hapless Western Australia.

Mitchell Aaron Starc (born 30 January 1990), is an Australian international cricketer who plays for the Australian national team and New South Wales in domestic cricket.

His pace has been electric and already, his lead-up form has raised the notion that he may be able to menace the tourists in the same way fellow southpaw Mitchell Johnson did in the 2013-14 whitewash series, when he took 37 wickets.

If anything like that were to unfold, Starc said, it would be off the back of Hazlewood's work at the other end. The tall right-armer has become the rock for the Australian pace battery, enabling Starc and Cummins to attack with added abandon.

"He was straight back into his Test form after one over of shield cricket. It's a credit to him, he's a bloody genius with line and length. It allows Pat and I and the others to be aggressive and that's how I bowl," Starc said.

"We can unleash from the other end, bowl as quick as we can and attack. He takes his wickets with line and length and Pat and I come in and try and blast teams out, try and attack the stumps and really intimidate.

Cricket Australia shows Ashes hand by naming Jackson Bird in pace bowling camp

  Cricket Australia shows Ashes hand by naming Jackson Bird in pace bowling camp Jackson Bird has been drafted into an Ashes pace bowling training camp in Brisbane next week in a strong sign the Tasmania seamer will be Australia's number one back-up plan if any of its frontline quicks break down. The Tasmania seamer will join star trio Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins at CA's National Cricket Centre to complete their preparations for the first Test starting in a fortnight's time.Hazlewood has been withdrawn from the third round of the Shield against Queensland after an impressive return to first-class cricket last week against Western Australia.

Full name Mitchell Aaron Starc . Born January 30, 1990, Baulkham Hills, Sydney, New South Wales. Never was that shown to greater effect than during the 2015 World Cup, when Starc was at times unplayable, his inswingers rattling stumps and trapping batsmen in front throughout the competition.

It was easy does it for the three quicks in Brisbane on Monday as they completed a relatively restrained net session, as well has having a bat. That won't be the case on Wednesday when they plan to up the ante in preparation for the Test opener.

"I think we will get someone to bat against us on Wednesday. You hold back a little bit, you don't want to hit your mate for starters. We do have a fast bowler's code in our team – it won't happen for England," Starc said.

"But we are not going to bounce each other here, hopefully we get a batter to bounce on Wednesday."

That's not to suggest Australia will be heaving short balls at England. Starc said aggression was always a prime factor for fast bowlers, but execution and smart lines would be the at the heart of their approach.

"It [aggression] plays a big part. I think everyone makes out fast bowling has to be aggressive and to a part it is, but other times it comes down to discipline and execution.

"For us it is about getting our lengths right. It is obviously a great ground for Australia in terms of our record. Bowlers and batsmen have played the conditions really well. It is a very good cricket wicket. Bad bowling gets punished. Patient batting gets rewarded."

Starc downplayed his efforts with the pink ball against WA, offloading credit to Hazlewood for removing the top order, in turn exposing the less-accomplished bats to his lighting left arm.

And he doesn't believe he's bowling at a career best. That milestone, he hopes, might eventuate over coming months.

"No [it is not the best I have bowled]. I got a few at the right time. I cleaned up the tail but Josh was the one who cleaned up the top order and Patty bowled really well as well.

"With Nathan Lyon we really did a great job on a flat wicket on a small ground to take 10-44. We complement each other. It does not have to be the one guy who stands up."
