Where and when will the IPL auction 2023 take place?
It starts on December 23 at 2.30 p.m. IST in Kochi. This auction is a conventional one, as opposed to the gigantic one that was held before the 2022 season and required the 10 franchises to recreate their teams essentially from start.
Who has the most money to spend right now, then? who is the least fortunate?
The greatest prize pool belongs to Sunrisers Hyderabad, which released as many as eleven players before to the auction. The Kolkata Knight Riders also made significant roster adjustments, releasing ten players, but they were also active during the trading period. Shardul Thakur from Delhi Capitals, Lockie Ferguson, and Rahmanullah Gurbaz from Gujarat were acquired via trade.
What number of players are in the bartering?
The longlist initially included 991 players, the last rundown has 405: 273 from India and 132 from abroad, including four from Partner countries. A limit of 87 players, of which 30 can be from abroad, can be purchased at the bartering due to the restricted spaces accessible.
Tell me if you have any players available.
Despite the fact that the Ashes are set to start in the middle of June, the Australian and English players will be available for the full IPL season. Players from West Indies and New Zealand will also be accessible for the whole campaign. Players from Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, meanwhile, would probably miss some of the tournament due to international obligations.
Sam Curran is the subject of a lot of conversation. What are the chances that he would receive the highest bid ever in an IPL auction?
Chris Morris of South Africa, an all-rounder, was purchased by Rajasthan Royals for INR 16.25 crore in 2021, making him the most expensive player ever. Curran has a good chance of shattering that record.
The left-hander has the versatility to bat wherever in the XI and can perform those super-specialist tasks, such as interfering with a spinner’s job in the middle overs or even completing an inning. Curran leads with the ball on the difficult powerplay overs and in the waning seconds. Curran has changed since he overcame a stress fracture, and at the 2022 T20 World Cup, he will serve as England’s official death bowler.
