  • Time is short but I have a lot to think about – Joe Root
  • Before next season, the IPL’s big auction is scheduled to take place in Bangalore on February 12-13.
  • Starc also said Wednesday that he is considering returning to the IPL despite the hectic schedule ahead.

England Test Captain Joe Root has revealed that he is looking to re-enter the league’s lucrative auction after missing any team at the Indian Premier League (IPL) auction four years ago. Root, considered one of the greats of the game in the current era, was not offered by any team at the IPL auction in 2018. He has not been part of this dazzling league since.

However, the 31-year-old hitter said he would like to play in this league only if it doesn’t affect his career in the Test. “Time is short, but I have a lot to think about,” Root told ESPNcricinfo.com.

He said: “Will this have a negative effect on my test cricket game? If I don’t think so, I will put myself up for auction. But I would never do anything to disturb playing test cricket for England. Very sure of that. It is important because it is a priority for me and for other players. “
