IPL Auction 2023: The much-awaited mini-auction of the Indian Premier League is slated to take place on Friday (December 23) in Kochi.
The final list for the IPL Auction 2023 consists of 405 players, including 273 Indian and 132 overseas players. Most of the top stars have been retained by the franchises ahead of the event.
However, there is enough excitement on some big names, who have expressed an interest in playing IPL 2023. The likes of Ben Stokes, Sam Curran and Joe Root, Harry Brook and Cameron Green are some overseas stars, who have performed well in the international circuit.
In fact, Curran was named Player of the Tournament in the T20 World Cup 2022 and will be a hot favourite among franchises. Few players also missed the 2022 edition, and as a result, will have to endure the auction process after getting released by the franchises.
Players like Evin Lewis, Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Nicholas Pooran and Mayank Agarwal were some shocking releases from the franchises. It will be interesting to witness their names in the IPL Auction 2023.
