Nobody should have objections if CA allows players to play IPL, feels Starc

Schedules of Australia domestic season and the cash-rich league event Indian Premier league (IPL) may collide if BCCI tries to plan out the much-anticipated league in October-November window which might become available due to possible postponement of T20 World Cup.

Former Australia Skipper Ian Chappell last week raised question over commitment of players who prioritize IPL over domestic schedule. He said when Cricket Australia is taking care of their financial needs; top Aussie players’ obligation should be to Australia.

Wouldn’t have problem with my teammates playing IPL

The left-arm paceman Mitchell Starc, however, has a different view. The players will get to play only if CA grants the request and in such case why anyone should have a problem, he said.

“There’s a lot of things that would have to go into that I assume … Cricket Australia would have to clear those guys so if they’re clear to go, I don’t see a problem with it,” cricket.com.au quoted Starc as saying.

“They’re pre-existing contracts and they would have been playing anyway. There’s obviously a different hurdle of domestic cricket there. It’d be an interesting decision, not one I’d have to make, so I’ll let them make their decisions,” added Starc.

IPL has fast-tracked my development: Cummins

Another Australian fast bowler, Pat Cummins while acknowledging the significant financial offers said that IPL plays a key role to adding or improving players’ skill.

“(In previous IPL stints) I was in a position where I was bowling the last couple of overs in a situation where it could either win or lose the match … and that’s just huge experience, it just really fast-tracked (me),” explained Pat Cummins.

Notably, Mitchell Starc has opted out from this year’s edition of the cash rich league while likes of Pat Cummins, David Warner and Steve Smith have all signed lucrative deals to play in the tournament.
