Australian pacer Mitchell Starc, who won the Allan Border Medal, made a big revelation on his cricket career. The 31-year-old cricketer revealed that he once wanted to quit playing cricket as he did not feel motivated enough. He said that, in the last two years, he has gone through many ups and downs and credited his wife for being a massive support for him in those tough times.
Several England cricketers, including their top batters such as Jos Buttler, Jonny Bairstow, and Moeen Ali, and all-rounders Sam Curran and Chris Woakes, were rested for the country's two-Test series against New Zealand because of their involvement in the IPL. England lost the two-Test series to the Blackcaps 0-1 in 2021.
