Australian pace bowler Mitchell Starc has confirmed he is weighing up a return to the Indian Premier League for the first time since 2015.
Starc remains fully focused on seeing out the Ashes series against England with the fifth Test still to come, but he also has one eye on potentially playing in the IPL.
Starc has not played in the IPL since 2015, instead opting to take a break from the lucrative competition in favour of staying at home to enjoy time with family.
He may opt to do that again but told reporters on Wednesday that he has yet to make a final call and will decide in the next couple of days.
The IPL 'mega auction' is expected to take place in mid-February and Starc has to confirm whether he is keen to make a return in the coming days.
He is of one of the best white-ball bowlers in the world so is sure to be in hot demand if he did decide to play.
There will be plenty cash on offer to tempt Starc, but the Aussie quick says there is plenty to consider.
"I've got two days to get my paperwork in. That might be something I do today before training," Starc told reporters. "I haven't put my name down just yet but I've got a couple more days to decide on that.
"That's certainly on the table, regardless of what the schedule has got coming up. I haven't been for six years or so.
"With obviously 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."
