Australia star pacer Mitchell Starc said he might put his name for the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) mega auction which is will be held in Bengaluru on February 12 and 13.

Speaking ahead of the fifth Ashes Test in Hobart, Starc revealed he was seriously considering entering the IPL mega auction.

"I've got two days to get my paperwork in, so that might be something to do today before training. I've not put my name down just yet, but I've got a couple more days to decide on that. It's certainly on the table regardless of what the schedule has got coming up," quoted Starc as saying.

Starc said that with a heavy weighting towards T20s in recent times and the upcoming T20 World Cup, playing in IPL 2022 is in his consideration.

"I haven't been for six years or so. Obviously, with a heavy weighting towards T20s over the last period of time and the World Cup coming up later this year, that's one to take into consideration as well. There's a bit going on with scheduling and what-not to get our heads around, certainly for us multi-format players," he added.

Starc has played 27 matches for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the competition, but he has not turned up to play in the IPL after 2015.
