Mitchell Starc is out too....Jackson Bird is his replacement...if you have already picked Starc, you will only have your supersub scoring....if he's your trump player, I will let your supersub be the trump player. No direct replacement rule now. Those who have not yet picked teams, please do NOT pick Starc now smile
