IPL 2023 Auction: There is still time for the 16th season of IPL to begin. But preparations and strategies have already started. It will start with the mini auction to be held in Kochi on Friday, December 23. Last year, many teams became new in the mega auction and before the mini auction, most of the teams kept their basics or say important players. Still 87 players can be bought. For this, a total of 405 players will enter the auction.
It’s a small auction to say it. But in terms of money and players, it doesn’t seem like a microcosm by any means. This is the seventh time that mini auction has taken place in IPL. This will be the first time in the history of IPL mini auction that a bid of more than Rs 200 crore will happen, which has never happened before. If the remaining amount of all 10 teams is added in your wallet, then it will be Rs 206.5 crore.
Earlier in the mini auction held in 2021, all the teams had spent around Rs 145 crore. Whereas a year ago in 2020 it was around Rs 140 crore. That is, this time the teams have the most money to buy players. This means that this time money can be showered on the players and the records of the previous mini auction can be broken.
Whether it happens or not, we will have to wait for the auction. But before that we tell you all the big things related to the auction. Like how many player slots are vacant, how many overseas players can be bought and how much money is left in a team’s wallet? This time what are the rules regarding auction and all other things. So let us tell you that this time how many players are going to try their luck in the auction.
