In an interview with The Guardian, Mitchell Starc expressed his appreciation for his experiences in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and his previous stint at Yorkshire. However, he made it clear that representing Australia holds the utmost importance for him.

Amidst the widespread participation of Australian players in T20 leagues worldwide, such as the Indian Premier League (IPL) and Big Bash, the left-arm pacer has made a conscious decision to prioritize his national team commitments over the allure of these lucrative tournaments. 

“I enjoyed it (IPL), likewise I enjoyed my time at Yorkshire 10 years ago. But Australia will always sit at the top,” Starc affirmed, emphasizing his loyalty to the national team.

He further stated, “I don’t regret any of it, money will come and go, but I’m very grateful for the opportunities I’ve had. Over a hundred years of Test cricket and there’s been less than 500 men who have played it for Australia. That, in itself, makes it very special to be a part of it.”
