IPL 2023: The IPL auction is very exciting and every year there have been numerous players who have made their dreams come true in the tournament. Numerous players have won big money in the tournament adding more to this attractive tournament.
With many players in the Rs 2 crore base price range, we have picked five players who are expected to be picked in the IPL 2023 mini-auction on December 16 this year.
5. Kane Williamson
Released by the orange army ahead of the 2022 mini-auction, the SRH captain is the most important name on this year’s auction sheet.
The Kiwi captain has lost his reputation in the Sunrisers side due to consecutive disappointing seasons with the bat. Even at the international level, he has lost touch with the shorter format of the game. However, the Kiwi announced his return to form with some fighting performances in the World Cup finals and even the recent series against India.
Prolific batsmen and Captain Cool will pose a significant challenge to all the franchises in the tournament. Hence, he will be a hot pick in the IPL 2023 Auction.
4. Sam Curran
The young English paceman is the liveliest all-rounder in Twenty20 cricket in recent years. His lethal bowling skills can impress any franchise management.
Curran has been a lethal specialist with clever variations and intelligent control of line and length. Many teams like DC and RR would be in search of this youngster in the IPL 2023 auction.
3. Adam Zampa
The Aussie leggie has been Australia’s top 2022 wicketkeeper in the short format and he has commanded any opposition in the middle overs.
As the IPL is a subcontinental league, wrist spinners always have a role to play, making Zampa an important steal in the upcoming auction. Adam Zampa could be such a bond for a franchise like PBKS or SRH who lack proper spin options.
2. Mujib Ur Rahman
The Afghan Turner has been 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 the right spinner who can play tight even in power plays.
With a balanced pace attack in the Super Giants and Kings ranks and an amazing pace attack in the Sunrisers ranks, they all lack proper spin options and Mujeeb will be the most suitable addition to strengthen the IPL 2023 squad.
1. Chris Jordan
Bought by the Super Kings last year, Jordan didn’t get much of a chance to feature in the regular squad and even failed to convert the opportunities he was given.
Jordan has been a formidable T20 option for the franchise in tournaments around the world. A posthumously intelligent cricketer known for bowling wide yorkers and the most athletic fielder on the pitch, Jordan is available for any franchise in the IPL 2023 mini-auction.
