The selection process for the Indian Premier League (IPL) for the upcoming season received a lot of attention after the unexpected end of the T20 Championship in India. On November 15, the 10 teams participating in the tournament had to submit their final rosters.
As curiosity grew among the devotees, several intriguing names were exchanged just a few nights before the full list was submitted. If you are one of those curious people and interested in online cricket betting at Lottoland or any other online lottery website, make sure to read this post till the end.
Since the parties participate in the bidding without the help of the majority of the “big ones”, only a few prominent figures have been revealed by the parties conducting their cold talks. In any case, clubs will try to strengthen their team by using the bidding to their advantage and gain a foothold on rival teams with the leftover money.
We discuss 7 participants in this bid who have the potential to receive the highest bid.
Chris Morris became the most valuable player ever acquired in the Indian Premier League (IPL) when he was signed by the Rajasthan Royals during the 2021 mini-auction. A fierce bidding war pushed its value from a starting price of INR 75 lakhs to a whopping 16.25 crore. Despite being the leading wicket-taker for the Royals with 15 wickets in 11 matches in the next series, Morris struggled with the bat, scoring only 67 runs at an average of 13.40.
2. Cameron Green
Cameron Green is a highly skilled Australian opener who performed exceptionally well on a recent tour of India. In a three match T20 series against the locals, he scored his fastest fifty in T20Is, reaching the milestone in just 19 balls. He followed this up with an innings of 42 runs off 21 balls, hitting seven fours and three sixes. Green can hit in any order and also offers a fast bowling option, making him a valuable asset to any team. It is predicted that many teams will compete for his services in the bidding process.
3. Mayank Agarwal
Fans of the Punjab Kings were surprised by the departure of Mayank Agarwal as captain, with Shikhar Dhawan taking over the role for the IPL 2023 season. Dhawan was bought for INR 8.25 crore in the IPL 2022 mega auction and played under the captaincy of Agarwal that season. For this auction Mayank has set its base price at INR 1 crore.
Sam Curran is one of the best young all-rounders for England. He is expected to receive high bids from many teams due to his excellent bowling and attacking batting skills. In 144 T20 matches he has taken 146 wickets at an average of 8.48 and scored 1731 runs at a score of 135.65. Curran made his IPL debut for the Chennai Super Kings in 2021 and is set to win significantly in the upcoming IPL mini auction.
5. Jason Holder
Jason Holder, the West Indian all-rounder, was a surprising addition to the Lucknow Super Giants, a new team in the Indian Premier League (IPL). He was bought at a cost of Rs 8.75 crore and contributed 58 runs and 14 wickets in 12 matches during the season.
6. Rilee Rossouw
Since returning to international cricket in 2022 after a six-year absence, South African batsman Rilee Rossouw has been consistently impressive in white-ball cricket. He played in the T20 Blast this year, scored 623 runs in 16 innings with a batting frequency of 192.28 and was subsequently selected for the national T20I squad. He is known for his ability to play big innings and is expected to be a hot commodity in the IPL 2023 mini-auction. Rossouw previously played in the IPL for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2014 and 2015 but conceded only five games and scored 53 points. He would be a valuable asset to any team looking for a top class batsman who can accelerate the run rate and also anchor the innings if required.
7. Ben Stokes
Ben Stokes will be a valuable asset to any team due to his versatility. He can hit in the highest order, finish games and open the bowling, as well as deliver the death overs. Stokes has a base price of INR 2 crore and is expected to be in high demand at the mini auction. In 43 matches in the IPL he has scored 920 runs including two centuries and two fifties and has taken 28 wickets at an economy rate of 8.55.
