IPL 2023: The IPL auction is very intriguing, and every year there have been numerous players who have had a dream run in the tournament. Numerous players have made big bucks in the tournament and have added more to this gripping tournament.
With many players in the range of a Rs 2 crore base price, we handpicked five of them who can be expected to be picked in the upcoming IPL 2023 mini-auction on the 16th of December this year.
5. Kane Williamson
The SRH captain, who is released by the orange army before the mini-auction in 2022, is the most crucial name on this year’s auction sheet.
The Kiwi skipper lost his prominence in the Sunrisers’ side due to consecutive disappointing seasons with the bat. Even internationally, he has been out of touch with the shorter format of the game. However, the Kiwi has announced his return to form with some battling performances in the World Cup’s final games and even in the recent series against India.
The prolific batsmen and Captain Cool would pose a significant challenge to all franchises in the tournament. Thus, he will be a hot pick in IPL 2023 Auction.
4. Sam Curran
The young English paceman is the most vibrant all-rounder in Twenty20 cricket in recent years. His death bowling skills can impress any franchise’s management.
Curran has been a death-over specialist with his clever variations and smart control over line and length. Many teams like DC and RR would be in the hunt for this young man in the IPL 2023 auction.
3. Adam Zampa
The Aussie leggie has been the highest wicket-taker of 2022 for Australia in the shorter format, and he has shown command over any opposition in the middle overs.
With the IPL being a league played in the subcontinent, the wrist spinners always have a role to play, making Zampa an important heist in the upcoming auction. Adam Zampa can be such a bond for franchises like PBKS or SRH that lack proper spinning options.
2. Mujeeb Ur Rahman
The Afghan Turner has been a part of several IPL franchises in recent years, but he was not sold in last year’s mega auction.
However, he has been consistent in his performance this year and could be of great interest to franchises looking for a proper spinner who can bowl tight overs even on the powerplay.
With a balanced pace attack in the Super Giants and Kings lineups and a stunning pace attack in the Sunrisers lineup, they all lack proper spinning options, and Mujeeb would be the most appropriate addition to strengthen their IPL 2023 squad.
1. Chris Jordan
Picked up by the Super Kings last year, Jordan didn’t get many chances to feature in the regular lineup and even couldn’t convert the opportunities provided to him.
Jordan has been a formidable T20 pick for franchises across tournaments around the world. Jordan, a smart cricketer at the death who is known for bowling wide yorkers and being the most athletic fielder on the field, is available to any franchise in the IPL 2023 mini-auction.
