Twitter Reaction: Mitchell Starc Ignores IPL To Focus On International Cricket

Sad news for all the cricket enthusiasts who love watching IPL, as Mitchell Starc, the Australian fast bowler, has opted out of the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League. The fast bowler had backed out last year as well citing that he is preparing for the World Cup 2019.


The paceman had once again backed out for a similar reason, so as to focus on the upcoming T20 World Cup 2020. Mitchell Starc has last featured in the IPL in the year 2015 playing for Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore.

In 2018, Shah Rukh Khan’s Kolkata Knight Riders bought him for a whopping  INR 9.4 crores, but unfortunately, Starc couldn’t play a single game due to an injury that he suffered during the Test series in South Africa.

Mitchell’s name is not included among the list of 971 cricketers who have registered for the upcoming IPL auctions that are scheduled to take place n Kolkata on December 19.


Well, because of inconsistency, Mitchell was not able to play all the games in the Ashes as well. But he has now found his rhythm and is giving his very best. Lately, Mitchell Starc has been in some great form as he gave a tough time to Pakistan’s batsmen in the ongoing Test series.

His mesmerizing spell helped his team win the game by an innings and five runs. After shining in the opening test, Starc is now making the pink-ball talk in the Day-Night Test at the Adelaide Oval.

As soon as the news of him opting out of IPL 2020 came out, the fans of IPl started flooding twitter with their reactions on the same.
