IPL definitely on the table: Mitchell Starc

IPL definitely on the table: Mitchell Starc

Mitchell Starc has stated that he's not looking for a break in the final and fifth Ashes Test after having played all four test matches in the series so far. Mitchell Starc, the second-highest wicket-taker in the series with 14 wickets, only one behind Nathan Lyon, has requested the selectors to let him play in the pink-ball Test in Hobart, a format in which Mitchell Starc is the only Test bowler to have reached 50 wickets in a series.

"I'm feeling good," Mitchell Starc said on Wednesday (12th January). "It's purely up to the selectors, and I'm not looking for a break. It's the last, and it's the match of an Ashes series at home. It's a pink ball too so I'd very much like to play."

Workload will be one of the main factors when picking the squad for the final Test. Mitchell Starc has played across formats in the past few months. With Australia's upcoming limited-overs series against Sri Lanka and New Zealand immediately after the Ashes series, they may select to give him a rest. At the same time, Mitchell Starc also is considering putting his name through for the upcoming mega auction of the Indian Premier League. Starc, a regular addition in the IPL between 2012 and 2015, Mitchell Starc has missed the last six Ipl seasons either workload management or due to injury.

"I have got two days to get my paperwork, so that might be something to do today before training," Mitchell Starc said. "I've not put my name yet d, but I've got many more days to decide on that. It's certainly on the table anyway what the schedule has got coming up."

"I haven't been for more than six years or so," he said about IPL.

"Obviously, with a heavy load towards T20s over the last period and the World Cup coming up later this year, and one to take into consideration as well. A bit is going on with the program and what-not to get our heads around, certainly different format players.

"The schedules are quite busy when you throw in all the tours, and we've got a many of white-ball series after the Ashes before that Pakistan tour, then you take into factor the IPL and the Lanka tour after that. So it's a massive six months cricket for everyone."
