Starc out of IPL 2018 with ‘tibial bone stress’

Australia pace bowling spearhead Mitchell Starc has been ruled out of the upcoming 11th edition of the Indian Premier League with a ‘tibial bone stress’ in his right leg.

The news comes across as a huge dent to Kolkata Knight Riders, who picked him during the mega player auction earlier in the year, for INR 9.4 Crore. Starc, who was tipped to lead the franchise’s bowling attack, will now leave a huge vacuum in their bowling tank with fellow compatriot Mitchell Johnson expected to step up to that role. It is understood that in accordance with the Player Regulations, KKR will now be allowed to choose a replacement from the Registered and Available Player Pool (RAPP).
