IPL 2023

The IPL 2023 Auction is going to be one of the most anticipated events this year. It will be a fun event because the pool of available players is smaller and the teams have many voids to fill. There are also a few exciting prospects like Cameron Green, who is expected to attend the auction for the first time ever. Green has been mighty impressive in the Australian colors. Another name that is expected to make an entry is Joe Root. Joe Root’s name is also exciting, and here’s the reason why? 

Joe Root Plans to Put his name in the IPL 2023 Auction: 

Joe Root, the former England skipper has decided to put his name in the IPL 2023 Auction. This has added to the spice of this event. Joe Root’s main motive behind this could be a possible comeback to the England white-ball setup. The England white-ball setup currently consists of an all-explosive lineup along with Dawid Malan. Malan is the player who holds that batting together. Because the “slam-bang” approach doesn’t work always. And the day that Malan doesn’t fire, the English team takes a beating. So, Joe Root is considering a white-ball comeback.
