IPL title winner Starc hints at quitting one format to open doors for more franchise cricket


Hours after clinching his maiden IPL title, the most expensive player in its history Mitchell Starc hinted at quitting one form of cricket to prolong his career in franchisee cricket. This comes after resisting the lure of lucrative private leagues for almost a decade because of his commitment towards the ‘Baggy Green’. While the 34-year-old didn’t specify the format he intends to give up, it is likely to be ODIs considering that the next 50-over World Cup is in 2027. Starc, who was the man of the match for his crucial two wickets that broke backbone of SRH top order, said that he was not perturbed by the criticism and memes that circulated mocking his performance in the initial matches of the IPL. Starc said that he enjoyed playing the IPL this year and is looking forward to playing it next year as well.
