Several IPL debutants have the chance to shine as fans get ready for the 16th season of the lucrative league. Many fans' eyes will be glued to these cricketers who have repeatedly demonstrated their strength on the cricket field during the upcoming T20 extravaganza season. Here are the fresh faces you should keep your eyes out for:
Despite having impressive records and skills, batsmen like Rassie Van Der Dussen and Dawid Malan went unpicked in the auction.
Similarly, despite being in excellent form, Daryl Mitchell and Dasun Shanaka failed to attract bids. Other players like Shakib Al Hasan, Litton Das, Kusal Mendis, Tom Banton, Chris Jordan, and Adam Milne had high base prices ranging from Rs. Fifty lakhs to Rs. 2 crores, but were not selected by any of the ten franchises.
It was surprising to see these players go unpicked, as they have performed well in international and domestic cricket. But if you are a fan, don't be disappointed. They may get another chance in the next auction or as replacements during the tournament. We're keeping our fingers crossed!
The tournament is scheduled to begin on 31st March 2023. This edition will have ten teams in IPL 2023, as the BCCI added two nebw teams after IPL 2022. The teams will play 70 league games over 52 days at 12 venues.
The defending champions, Gujrat Titans and Chennai Super Kings will play the first match in Ahmedabad.
The Tata IPL 2023 auction was a success, with franchises and players making the most of the opportunity to build a strong team for the upcoming season. There was an overall sum of Rs. 167 crores spent on 80 players between 10 franchises as a whole.
A few surprising bids were seen at the auction, with some players being purchased for much more than their base price at the auction. It will be interesting to see how these teams perform in the upcoming season with their new acquisitions!
