3 teams that can target Mitchell Starc in IPL 2024 Player auction

Star Australian speedster Mitchell Starc has registered for the IPL 2024 auction after several years of non-availability. Starc is going through a great run of form and his injury issues are also at bay which is great news for the left-arm pacer. This mini-auction will be dominated by the bowlers as a lot of franchises are looking to include them in their squad. Mitchell Starc will also be in demand and in this article, we will take a look at 3 teams that can target Mitchell Starc in the IPL 2024 player auction.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

Mithcell Starc has already played for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the past and there are possibilities that he can don the RCB jersey once again. RCB has always been associated with batting firepower but their bowling unit has been below par. Before the upcoming auction, RCB has let go of some of their fast bowlers like Josh Hazlewood. Mitchell Starc would be a great audition for the franchise from Bangalore as a bowler of his caliber can manage the pressure in the challenging bowling conditions of Chinnaswamy Stadium

Gujarat Titans

After releasing a few fast bowlers from its squad, Gujarat Titans would be on their way to auction with an eye for targeting fast bowling options available in the auction pool. Currently, Gujarat has only Mohammad Shami along with Mohit Sharma as experienced fast bowling options which makes the bowling department an area to focus on. Being a left-arm bowling option, Starc will be a lucrative option for Gujarat Titans as ‘left is right’ in this format of the game.

Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders

Whenever Kolkata Knight Riders lifted the IPL title, they had a quality overseas fast bowler. Brett Lee guided the franchise from the city of joy to glory in 2012 whereas Morne Morkel did the same in 2014. Since then, KKR has not won the title which coincides with the fact that they did not have the service of a quality overseas fast bowler. Lockie Ferguson has been released by KKR before the auction which mandates them to include a bowler of international standard in their squad. Mitchell Starc would be a perfect candidate to lead Kolkata’s bowling attack at the iconic Eden Gardens.
