Starc has also been ruled out of the fourth and series decider Test against South Africa which started today in Johannesburg.
"Fast bowler hit by stress fracture in his leg, the third Australian this week to be ruled out of the IPL", Cricket Australia reported. In the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne, had ruled him out of action.
The 28-year-old Starc last played in the lucrative IPL in 2015 when he lined up in a star-studded Royal Challengers Bangalore side but injuries have made him miss the last two seasons.

Starc, who was tipped to lead the franchise's bowling attack, will now leave a huge vacuum in their bowling tank with fellow compatriot Mitchell Johnson expected to step up to that role.
Starc was bought for a whopping sum of ₹9.4 Cr by KKR during the IPL auction back in January. KKR can call for replacement from the Registered and Available Player Pool (RAPP).
KKR are also sweating over the fitness of Australia opener Chris Lynn, who is racing to recover from a shoulder injury. With exciting cricket on the cards, sometimes one tends to get carried away by the aura of a Chris Gayle or a Brendon McCullum winning matches for their respective teams, primarily because they have represented their national sides and are proven match winners at the global stage.
