The IPL has successfully completed 15 editions since its birth in 2008. We have seen franchises battling amongst themselves to win the trophies.
Meanwhile, the amount of money that the cash-rich IPL franchises have been offering these days could only tempt many players to play in the lucrative tournament because this is one of the routes to get richer.
However, one has to keep in mind that consistent performance is the key to success in the longer run, otherwise it would be a different story altogether. We have seen players getting released by some franchises due to their below-par performances.
Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins set to miss IPL 2023
Meanwhile, in the latest development, it has been confirmed that Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins are set to miss the sixteenth edition of the Indian Premier League according to latest reports.
While Pat Cummins has played IPL for a long time now, Mitchell Starc has hardly marked his presence in the cash-rich IPL. The left-arm paceman has often ignored the IPL to focus on international assignments.
Several social media users have applauded Mitchell Starc for prioritising national duties ahead of the cash-rich IPL. India’s premier T20 competition is known to tempt players by splashing the money to any extent to purchase their services.
However, players like Mitchell Starc have proved no matter how much the franchise would offer, it is always the national duty that comes first for the left-arm paceman.
Starc has played only 27 games in the IPL so far in his career wherein he took 34 wickets to his name including a four-wicket haul. He has a bowling average of 20.4 and an economy of 7.16.
On the other side of the coin, Pat Cummins has played 42 games in the IPL. He has taken 45 wickets to his name including one four-wicket haul. Moreover, he has slammed 3 fifties to his name.
Starc is absolute goat always keeps country ahead of money https://t.co/xj4ReensOIAdvertisement
