Mitchell Starc might make his comeback to the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2022 after a 7-year absence. Starc is a bowler that so many teams would want to have in the lineup. He is indeed one of the best pacers in the sport. Nonetheless, owing to work-load management and other factors, he has decided to stay away from the prestigious competition. Starc played for Virat Kohli’s RCB in the 2015 IPL. Here we discussed the topic Is Mitchell Starc Playing IPL 2022?

On the other hand, Starc now intends to secure a contract in the 2022 tournament. However the pacer has not yet made an official choice, he is planning to enter the auction group. With a big auction going to take place this year, all franchisees will be carrying a large sum for the occasion. As a result, if Starc manages to take his profile up, he stands to make a lot of money.

I’m feeling good it’s purely up to the selectors: Starc

“I’ve got two days to get my paperwork in, so that might be something to do today before training,” I’ve not put my name down just yet, but I’ve got a couple more days to decide on that. It’s certainly on the table regardless of what the schedule has got coming up,” said Starc.

Furthermore, in the current Ashes 2021-22, the left-arm bowler has been on fire. Having 14 wickets in 4 games, Starc is the series’ 2nd-highest wicket-taker, trailing only off-spinner Nathan Lyon. The final Test in Hobart will be a day-night contest, having Australia leading by an unbeatable 3-0.

Given the approaching schedule and Starc’s injury history, the selection committee and team management may opt to rest him from the Pink-Ball play. On the other hand, the pacer will be delighted to enter the field and make the Pink-Ball shine.

“I’m feeling good. It’s (Selection) purely up to the selectors, I’m not looking for a break. It’s the last Test match of an Ashes series at home, it’s the pink ball too so I’d very much like to play,” said Starc.
