Cricket: Australian stars in the 2024 IPL

The Indian Premier League returns this week and 16 Australians will take part in the 17th edition of the T20 competition.

The IPL holds extra importance this year with the T20 World Cup on the horizon and a number of Aussies will be using the tournament to stake a claim for a spot in the squad.

Steve Smith and Josh Hazlewood are two players who missed out at the IPL auction and will play no part, but there is still a strong Australian contingent.

Let’s take a look at them.

Mitchell Starc

Aussie quick Mitchell Starc makes a return to the IPL after a nine-year absence and will play for the Kolkata Knight Raiders.

Starc is one of the best when it comes to white-ball cricket, hence why the Raiders paid $4.43million to secure his services.

The left-arm paceman will lead the bowling attack and the Raiders are 13.00 to win the tournament.

Pat Cummins

Fellow fast bowler and Aussie Test captain Pat Cummins will play for Sunrisers Hyderabad who are 10.00 to win the IPL.

Cummins cost $3.67million at the auction and has also been named skipper of the Sunrisers, who finished bottom of the standings in 2023.

Cameron Green

All-rounder Cameron Green cost Royal Challengers Bangalore $3.15million at the auction and they will be expecting big things from him with bat and ball.

Green could do with an impressive IPL tournament to help his chances of booking a place in Australia’s T20 World Cup squad.

Bangalore are 8.50 to win the IPL.

Glenn Maxwell

Glenn Maxwell will also join Green at Royal Challengers Bangalore, who paid $2million at auction.

The all-rounder, who will embark on his 12th IPL campaign, has had his injury issues, but still remains one of Australia’s best T20 cricketers.

Spencer Johnson

Spencer Johnson was the surprise of the IPL auction, with Gujarat Titans eventually paying $1.78million to secure his services.

The left-arm fast bowler caught the eye at The Hundred in England, as well as the Big Bash League and will be hoping for the same in India.

The Titans are 7.50 to win the IPL.

Marcus Stoinis

Marcus Stoinis will represent Lucknow Super Giants, who paid $1.7million for the all-rounder’s services,

He scored 408 runs for the Super Giants in 2023 and will need the same as he looks to secure his place at the World Cup.

The Super Giants are 8.50 to win the IPL.

Tim David

Tim David was snapped up by Mumbai Indians, who are the hot fancies at 5.00 to win the IPL in 2024.

David is sure to do plenty of damage batting in the middle order and that is why the Indians paid $1.53million for his services.

Travis Head

Travis Head has been in devastating form and returns to the IPL for the first time since 2017 after Sunrisers Hyderabad paid $1.2million to acquire him.

He will open the batting for Australia, but it remains to be seen if that will be the case for the Sunrisers.

Mitchell Marsh

Mitchell Marsh had a disappointing 2023 IPL campaign with the Delhi Capitals, who paid $1.2million to get him back on board for 2024.

The all-rounder will be keen to repay the faith and the Capitals are 12.00 to win the IPL.

David Warner

David Warner is the last of the million-dollar men, after the Capitals paid $1.16million to get him on board for 2024.

Rest of the Australians

The remaining Australians to feature in the IPL in 2024 are:

Jyhe Richardson - Delhi Capitals
Matthew Wade - Gujarat Titans
Adam Zampa - Rajasthan Royals
Ashton Turner - Lucknow Super Giants
Jason Behrendorff - Mumbai Indians
Nathan Ellis - Punjab Kings
