IPL 2023 mini-auction has changed the way it works. Earlier, the goal was to fill a few spots in the squad, whereas, in 2023, some teams are taking a bold call and will reconstitute their entire squads.
Teams have changed their strategy over the years
How teams have changed their strategy over the years. And how important these mini-auctions have become in recent times. Franchises these days are not shying away from spending lakhs to get a particular player. Be it Pat Cummins in 2020 or Kyle Jamieson and Chris Morris in 2021, mini-auctions have also helped cricketers earn a lot of money. And in 2023, the pattern is very unlikely to change.
Many top cricketers have already left their respective franchises and thus, they will have a chance at the auction table. Now we know about the players who can earn more than 5 crores from the IPL auction 2023.
IPL 2023: 5 Released Players who can earn more than 5 crores in the auction
In 133 IPL matches played so far, Agarwal has scored 2327 runs at a strike rate of 134.28. He was one of the pillars of the Punjab team.
Now, with Sunrisers looking for a captain, Chennai looking for someone after Dhoni, and Gujarat looking for an ideal opening partner for Shubman Gill, the teams are in a bidding war to secure Mayank’s services. likely to be involved. He is expected to earn more than 5 crores and could eventually become one of the costliest players in the IPL 2023 auction.
The release of former Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Kane Williamson came as a shocker to many, especially when the team had released two of its top cricketers, David Warner and Rashid Khan, only last year. The decision was taken to restructure the team and thus, SRH’s loss could be another team’s gain.
In 2022, the 32-year-old played 12 T20Is and scored 382 runs at a strike rate of 119. He is getting slowly and steadily.
Nicholas Pooran, the captain of Jason Holder in the West Indies team, was released by Sunrisers Hyderabad ahead of the mega auction. The wicket-keeper batsman was sold for 10.75 crores in 2022 but he could not live up to his potential.
In 2022, the 27-year-old played 23 T20Is and scored 582 runs at a strike rate of 130.49. Pooran has regained his form playing for Trinidad in their domestic competition.
Pooran could fit right into the CSK team, which lacks an explosive batsman in the middle order.
Caribbean veteran Jason Holder was bought by Lako Supergiants in the 2022 auction for 8.75 crores. LSG released him ahead of the mini-auction. However, this is not going to change how much he will earn in the upcoming mini-auction. He can change the color of the game at any time.
The 31-year-old cricketer may not be a popular pick in the presence of Ben Stokes and Cameron Green. But still, he will earn a lot of money because of the dearth of fast-bowling all-rounders in the Indian circuit.
In 38 matches, Holder scored 247 runs at a strike rate of 123.50 and took 49 wickets at an economy of 8.57.
Jaydev Undakat has caused quite a stir in the auction rooms over the years. In the year 2018, the left-arm fast bowler was sold for 11.5 crores.
Unadkat has taken 91 wickets in the Indian Premier League so far in 91 matches with an economy of 8.79. Now, even if he hasn’t been successful, Unadkat can bowl with the new ball and in the death overs as well.
