Australia fast bowler Mitchell Starc on Wednesday has been released by his Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) ahead of the upcoming season.

Starc, who missed the last edition due to a leg injury, was bought by KKR in the 2018 auction for Rs 9.4 crore.

Speaking to media Mitchell Starc said, "I got a text message two days ago from the owners of Kolkata saying I've been released from my contract, so at the moment I'll be home in April."

"I didn't go last year with my tibia injury. It was a great opportunity to freshen the body up and let it heal by itself. If I don't play the IPL next year it's a good opportunity to freshen up for a massive six months of cricket in the UK".

Starc also said that IPL is a bonus but if he had to miss the league for his national team he will take the latter option.     

"At the moment for me, I just want to play as much Test cricket and one-day cricket for Australia as I can. IPL is a lovely bonus on the pay packet but if I miss that to play more Test matches then I'm taking that option," he added.

Australia, who are the defending champions, are expected to take a call on the number of players they would allow for IPL 2019.
