Written by Rohit Pawar

After it came to notice that Aaron Finch and Glenn Maxwell did not register for the upcoming auction, it has also been learnt that speedsters Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins are also set to miss next year’s IPL as well. As per a report in The Mumbai Mirror, both the pacers haven’t registered for the auction that is set to take place on December 18 in Jaipur.

They were bought for a huge price in the IPL 2018 auction but did not turn up to play in the league due to respective injuries. Their franchises also released them ahead of the auction for the upcoming season.

Starc suffered an injury during the Test series against South Africa, that ruled him out for a few months. This was third consecutive year that he did not play IPL.

Cummins was bought by Mumbai Indians for a huge amount of Rs 5.4 Crore. He played the complete series against South Africa but did not land in India for the T20 league, which left everyone surprised. Later, it was confirmed that he is suffering an injury and will not be playing the tournament.
