IPL 2024: Starc recovered the cost of Rs 24.75 crore, made KKR champion, reminded of World Cup


Chennai. Mitchell Starc would hardly have seen the ‘reel’ which went viral on Instagram a month ago when he/she was being hit continuously for sixes by the Indian batsmen in the stadium. In this reel, instead of Starc’s voice, it was being said in Haryanvi accent, ‘It’s fun, I am enjoying my record price of Rs 24.75 crore in IPL.’ However, the makers of this reel had forgotten that Starc is a player of big matches and that is why such a huge amount was spent on him/her in the IPL auction.

Mitchell Starc, who returned to IPL after 8 years, took only seven wickets in the first 9 matches. Seeing him/her out of form, KKR fans were losing patience and trollers started making reels. Away from all this, Stark was working hard to return to form. Once he/she returned to form, he/she started wreaking havoc. he/she showed his/her talent against Mumbai Indians at Wankhede ground and then in the playoffs and finals. In the final against Sunrisers Hyderabad, he/she took 2 wickets for just 14 runs in a spell of 3 overs. he/she made Abhishek Sharma and Rahul Tripathi his/her victims.

Even before this, Mitchell Starc has taken wickets of big batsmen in the finals of big tournaments. Be it the wicket of Brendon McCullum in the final of the ODI World Cup 2015 or the final of the World Cup 2023, where he/she pushed the Indian batting on the backfoot by dismissing Shubman Gill and KL Rahul.
Abhishek Sharma, who was in great form in this IPL, must have got a glimpse of international cricket from the way Starc played in the final. In big tournaments like World Cup or IPL, you do not need to take 30 wickets, but perform well in two or three important days. KKR decided that Starc was worth Rs 24.75 crore and the New South Wales player showed that when it comes to the big occasion, he/she is priceless.

For the last several years, Starc gave importance to Test cricket and hence did not play much in league cricket around the world. For him/her, there is no better sight than showing the batsmen the way to the pavilion with the red Kookaburra ball. Starc had told the British newspaper Guardian before the Ashes last year, ‘There is nothing I like more in cricket than sitting and celebrating with my teammates after a Test win. It’s great to enjoy playing in the baggy green with so many of my close mates. (input language)
