The mega-auction of the IPL 2018 edition has started in Bengaluru. The beginning of this auction, well decorated with the officers of all the teams, was very strong. Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc, who was a key player of the 2015 Cricket World Cup winners Australia team, has been very hot in Kolkata and Punjab teams.
Mitchell Starc, who was part of the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the previous edition of IPL, had separated himself from the franchise so that he could focus on international cricket. Mitchell Starc is one of Australia’s best players, and for this reason, everyone’s eye in the latest auction was based on him.
Kolkata and Punjab have struggled for a long time with Mitchell Starc, who played an important role in Australia’s 4-0 victory in the Ashes series. Punjab had made a bid of up to Rs 9.2 crore, but in the end, Kolkata looted 9.4 million rupees and got Mitchell Starc as his name.
Calcutta also brought back Chris Lin, who was part of his team, he could not do Linen because he had already done Sunil Narine and Andre Russell. The situation on the future of the serious is still blurry.
