According to the latest report, the Australian star pacer Mitchell Starc will miss the Indian Premier League 2023 (IPL) season. Starc was part of KKR’s squad during the 2018 season but missed the entire tournament due to an injury and has played two seasons with RCB with 34 wickets. Now, there is news that Mitchell Starc Opts Out of IPL 2023 Due to Ashes.
This three-player signing process has already begun for the Kolkata-based franchise. Because the club needs reinforcements following their disappointing IPL 2022 season, fans are curious about how they would conduct business in the mini-auction.
The report stated that Starc will also miss the IPL 2023 season, which last played the tournament in 2015 for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
Currently, Australia is playing with England at Home and is planning to play with the West Indies in December. So, Starc will be busy with national duty in the next couple of months before the IPL. In addition, he will be busy with Ashes – one of the most extensive cricket series with their rivals England.
However, Pat Cummins will reportedly skip the IPL 2023 season to concentrate on the Ashes. KKR budget for the mini-auction would be increased because the price of the Australian skipper in the IPL 2022 mega-auction was INR 7.25 crore.
