The anticipation surrounding IPL 2024 reached its peak during the auction, where franchises made bold moves to secure top talents. Among the marquee signings was Kolkata Knight Riders’ acquisition of Australian speedster Mitchell Starc for a whopping INR 24.75 crore. However, Starc’s performance in the tournament has been underwhelming, failing to live up to his hefty price tag.

In both matches he played, Starc proved to be one of KKR’s costliest bowlers. In the opening game, he conceded 53 runs in four overs without claiming a wicket. Similarly, in the recent clash against RCB, he went wicketless while conceding 47 runs in four overs.

In a light-hearted take on Starc’s expensive outings, Iceland Cricket’s official account humorously remarked on social media, comparing his costs to the price of beer in their country. “More expensive than a beer in Iceland,” quipped Iceland Cricket in response to Starc’s performance statistics.

 

Meanwhile, despite Starc’s struggles, Kolkata Knight Riders have enjoyed a strong start to their IPL 2024 campaign. With back-to-back victories, they currently occupy the second spot in the standings with four points from two matches.

Looking ahead, KKR will now shift their focus to their upcoming encounter against Delhi Capitals, led by Rishabh Pant. Scheduled to take place at the Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium on April 3, the match marks the 16th game of the tournament.]

Notably, Delhi Capitals have had a rocky start to their IPL 2024 journey, yet to secure a win after losses to Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals. As they prepare to face formidable opponents in CSK and KKR, Delhi Capitals will aim to turn their fortunes around and secure their first victory of the season.
