Australian pacer Mitchell Starc has confirmed that he will return to the Indian Premier League ahead of the T20 World Cup 2024.
Notably, Starc last played in the Indian Premier League back in 2015 and pulled out to concentrate playing for Australia and spending time with family.
“I am definitely going back next year. Amongst other things, it’s a great led up to the T20 World Cup. So a good opportunity to see if anyone’s interested in the IPL, then lead into the T20 World Cup,” Starc told the Willow Talk Cricket podcast.
Starc entered the auction pool in 2018 and was brought by Kolkata Knight Riders for a massive Rs. 9.40 crore, but later he pulled out of the IPL due to back injury.
He had previously featured in 27 matches across two seasons for the Royal Challengers Bangalore. In 2018, he was signed by the KKR but had to withdraw due to injury.
