IPL 2023 auction

One of the most lucrative cricket leagues in the world is the Indian Premier League (IPL). This richest cricket league has enormous financial stakes. The upcoming IPL 2023 auction is anticipated to follow a similar format. 

The two-month period of the IPL 2022 saw several spectacular performances, as usual. Players sacrificed everything they had to make the 15th edition of IPL a huge success, and it turned out the same. 

The franchises have begun formulating concepts for the auction even though the IPL 2023 is still a few months away. Strong reports indicate that the auction will take place around the middle of December, which is most likely to be December 16. Let’s check 5 players who could sell for 10 crores or even more at the IPL 2023 auction.

Ben Stokes

Ben Stokes, a great all-rounder for England, is anticipated to bid in the IPL 2023 auction. Chris Morris holds the record for being the most expensive player ever purchased in IPL auction history as the Rajasthan Royals shelled out 16.25 crore for the South African in 2021. Given that Stokes is a top-tier all-rounder, it would be reasonable to believe that teams would be ready to spend a comparable sum on him.

Dasun Shanaka

Dasun Shanaka, 31, has played in 158 T20 games (74 T20 Internationals) and has a strike rate of 141. In all T20 games in 2022, he has scored runs at a strike rate of 212 in the last overs. He is renowned for his leadership abilities and is capable of frequently giving 2-3 overs. Any seam-bowling all-rounder is in high demand in the IPL auction, and Shanaka may anticipate being purchased for a sizable sum of money if past experience is any indication.

Rajat Patidar

With his incredible batting display in the IPL 2022 playoff, Royal Challengers Bangalore’s top-order batsman Rajat Patidar has suddenly become a household name. He batted two consecutive innings, the first one against Lucknow, when he scored a century, becoming him the first uncapped RCB player to do so in the playoff phase.

Rajat Patidar then scored another fifty against the Rajasthan Royals. The ferocious left-handed batters scored 333 runs at an average of 55 and a strike rate of 153 in just 7 innings. If RCB releases him in the trading window, he might be one of the players whose prize money at the IPL 2023 auction surpasses 10 crores.

Cameron Green

An Australian seam bowler who can both open and bat in the middle order – Cameron Green will be a huge draw at the IPL 2023 auction, even though he has only played in 4 T20Is and 17 T20s so far. If he decides to hold an auction, he may attract high bidders.

Mitchell Starc

For the past five years, Starc has been skipping the IPLs due to injuries and workload management. But because India will host the 2023 World Cup, the left-arm fast bowler might put himself up for auction.

He collected 34 wickets for RCB in two seasons in 2014 and 2015. If the Australian spearhead pacer does really participate in the auction, it will be ignited by one of the world’s most lethal, all-phase fast bowlers. He is also capable of hitting the ball hard with the bat at the end. At the IPL 2023 auction, 10 crores would be a sizable minimum bid for Mitchell Starc.
