The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 Mini Auction is set to take place on Friday, December 23 as the ten teams convene in Kochi, Kerala to fill up the remaining empty spots on their rosters for the upcoming season.
We can expect some intense bidding wars as there are quite a few big names in the mix and quite a few teams have some gaps to fill before the new season gets underway.
Just last year the IPL had a mega-auction for teams to start again from scratch as the tournament welcomed the introduction of two new franchises, eventual winners Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants. This time around the auction will only be a one-day affair with 405 players in the pool while only 87 slots remain to be filled by all ten teams combined, out of this 30 will be overseas players.
Each team can have a maximum of 25 players and a minimum of 18 players from which, a maximum of 8 players can be overseas cricketers.
Sunrisers Hyderabad come into this mini-auction having retained the least number of players with only 12 players remaining, while Delhi Capitals retained the most with 20 players from the previous season still in the team.
