2019 nearing its end and with each day we are getting closer to the marquee event of cricket i.e. IPL. Indian Premier League, when it comes to its popularity and glory, not every other league can match IPL. International players, domestic players, T20 specialists and cricket experts, everyone who is related to the field of cricket waits for this carnival. Arch-rivals, fierce competitors, novices and experienced players play together representing the same franchise sweating out their blood to win a moment or two of glory.
Oppositions in Internationals share a bond of friendship because of this. Last day, we saw Pollard and Rohit share a little banter on the field representing their national teams. A little while after we witnessed yet another moment on the field when players from opposite side have a friendly talk and posed for the camera.
After the end of the first Test between Australia and New Zealand, Left-arm speedster Mitchell Starc joined David Warner and Kane Williamson for a talk. David Warner and Kane Williamson represent SRH in IPL. David Warner, the former captain of the team, has shared the picture on Instagram and welcomed Starc to the SRH family ahead of the IPL 2020 auctions.
However, Australian speedster Mitchell Starc has opted out of the VIVO IPL 2020 auction for the second consecutive year. He was also an absentee in the IPL 2019. Starc was picked by Kolkata Night Riders in the 2018 auction only to be side-lined by an injury. Since IPL 2015, Mitchell Strac has not played any match in Indian Premier League.
As far as auction list is concerned, Australian pacer Mitchell Starc might not be the part of IPL 2020 auction but it seems that Sunrisers Hyderabad are too keen of getting the services of the left-arm pacer.
VIVO IPL 2020 auction is scheduled to be held on 19 December. A list of 332 cricketers from around the world will go under the hammer in the IPL 2020 auctions.
