IPL 2023 West Indies Players Auction

The IPL 2023 auction is scheduled to take place in Kochi on December 23, and 991 players have signed up for a chance to participate in the biggest and richest T20 cricket tournament in the world.

Even though this IPL auction will only be a mini-auction, anticipate plenty of activity. Some players may receive enormous offers and find new homes, while others may be chosen by the franchises who first released them for a lower price.

The IPL is without a doubt dependent on West Indies cricket players because they supply the x-factor that has traditionally characterized the lucrative game. Over the years, many Caribbean players have wowed the crowds with their exhilarating performances. Know the 3 West Indies players who might attract the bidders during the IPL 2023 auction. 

Romario Shepherd

Prior to the 15th season of the league, Sunrisers Hyderabad set a record by spending INR 7.75 crores to acquire West Indies all-rounder Romario Shepherd. The 27-year-old only had the opportunity to play in three games last season since the administration decided not to deploy the player with their team.

He scored 58 runs, took three wickets, and had a strike rate of 141.46. He was released before the upcoming auction because of his 10.89 adverse economic rates. Shepherd might cost a premium price during the IPL 2023 auction, though, as he is the player who has the power to change the outcome of the match on his own.

Holder was bought by LSG for a significant amount of INR 8.75 crore at the IPL 2022 mega-auction. Despite not exactly shining on the IPL stage this year, the former West Indies captain had a solid season with the KL Rahul-led team.

Holder averaged just under 28 and had a 9.42 economy rate while taking 14 wickets in 12 games. Holder only faced 44 balls and scored 58 runs because LSG often altered his batting stance throughout the game.

Now that LSG has released Holder, other teams might be interested in the West Indies all-rounder. Holder always provides a real threat with his fast bowling and can tonk lusty smashes with his long levers.

Nicholas Pooran

Nicholas Pooran of the West Indies, who cost SRH a whopping 10.75 crores to acquire him in the IPL 2022 mega-auction, failed to live up to expectations and was sacked. Only two half-centuries were recorded by Pooran in the 14 IPL games he played this season, giving him a total of 306 runs.

Now that Pooran has been released by SRH, other teams might be interested in the Caribbean left-hander. One of cricket’s most skilled strikers, Pooran, is capable of winning matches in the shortest format.
