Mitchell Starc doesn’t regret giving the IPL a miss this year. He states how he is comfortable training for the upcoming summer season. Starc had pulled out of the lucrative T20 event to focus on the T20 World Cup in Australia. However, it was postponed last month due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“I know hindsight is a wonderful thing and now the IPL is on at a different time but no, I wouldn’t change it,” states the 30-year old.
“I’m happy to spend that time when the blokes are at the IPL in September I’ll be getting ready for a summer. The IPL will be around next year and if I feel the urge or people want me around I’ll definitely consider it, but as of this year I’m very comfortable with the decisions I’ve made.”
