IPL Auction 2023:During the 2023 IPL mini-auction, the Punjab Kings spent a record amount of money to get English all-rounder Sam Curran. The Shikhar Dhawan-led team paid INR 18.5 crore ($2 million) at the Grand Hyatt hotel in Kochi for Curran, with a minimum reserve price of INR 2 crore. The sum paid for Curran shattered the previous record established by Rajasthan Royals, who paid INR 16.25 crore for South African all-rounder Chris Morris before the 2021 season.
When the price of the T20 World Cup final’s Player of the Match swiftly reached Rs 7 crore, the Mumbai Indians and the Royal Challengers Bangalore entered the bidding. RCB withdrew from the competition shortly after, leaving RR and MI to continue their heated bidding battle. Although the competition included the likes of the Chennai Super Kings, PBKS, and the Lucknow Super Giants, Punjab came out on top.
Royal Challengers Bangalore
Squad strength: 25 players (overseas 8)
Players bought: Reece Topley (US$ 231,000), Himanshu Sharma (US$ 24,000), Will Jacks (US$ 390,000), Manoj Bhandage (US$ 24,000), Rajan Kumar (US$ 85,000), Avinash Singh (US$ 73,000), Sonu Yadav (US$ 24,000)

The triumphs RCB wanted a foreign pacer to support Josh Hazlewood, so they acquired Reece Topley from Australia. In addition, they have added off-spin all-rounder Will Jacks to help cover for Glenn Maxwell as he recovers from a significant leg injury.
Unfortunately, RCB’s bids for Harry Brook, Mayank Agarwal, Sam Curran, Cameron Green, Ben Stokes, and Manish Pandey were unsuccessful, and other teams purchased those players.
Openers: Faf du Plessis, Virat Kohli, Finn Allen
Middle-order: Rajat Patidar, Suyash Prabhudessai
Wicketkeepers: Dinesh Karthik, Anuj Rawat
Allrounders: Glenn Maxwell, Shahbaz Ahmed , Mahipal Lomror, Wanindu Hasaranga, Will Jacks, Manoj Bhandage, Sonu Yadav
Spinners: Karn Sharma, Himanshu Sharma
Fast bowlers: Harshal Patel, David Willey, Mohammed Siraj, Josh Hazlewood, Siddarth Kaul, Akash Deep, Reece Topley, Rajan Kumar, Avinash Singh
Squad strength: 25 players (overseas 8)
Players bought: Harry Brook (US$ 1.6 million), Mayank Agarwal (US$ 1 million), Heinrich Klaasen (US$ 640,000), Vivrant Sharma (US$ 317,000), Adil Rashid (US$ 243,000), Mayank Dagar (US$ 219,000), Akeal Hosein (US$ 121,000), Mayank Markande (US$ 60,000), Upendra Yadav (US$ 30,000), Sanvir Singh (US$ 24,000), Samarth Vyas (US$ 24,000), Nitish Kumar Reddy (US$ 24,000), Anmolpreet Singh (US$ 24,000
All in all, it is a win-win situation. Felt the need to get hands on a wrist spinner. Successfully acquired a T20 World Cup champion for INR 2 crore. Adil Rashid went 12-1-58-4 in the tournament’s last three games (including the semifinal and final). While he is not quite Rashid Khan, he comes very close.
Harry Brook provides it, which needs to be more present in Sunrisers. In his debut IPL, he plays spin well, has a 360-degree batting arc, and can smash it from the first delivery. Already Ben Stokes is drawing parallels between him and Virat Kohli.
If Mayank Agarwal can reach his full potential, he will be an outstanding option to play alongside Abhishek Sharma at the top of the order. The Sunrisers placed bids on 13 players but only received 12. Only Stokes was left out of the group and owned financial means. They had a clear idea of whom they wanted on their team.
They have a powerful right-handed hitting lineup. Glenn Phillips, who is supposed to be their primary wicketkeeper, seldom does so. South African wicketkeeper-batsman Heinrich Klaasen may have been overpaid by INR 5.25 crore.
Openers: Abhishek Sharma, Mayank Agarwal, Rahul Tripathi
Middle order: Aiden Markram, Harry Brook, Abdul Samad, Anmolpreet Singh
Wicketkeepers: Glenn Phillips, Heinrich Klaasen, Upendra Yadav, Nitish Kumar Reddy
Allrounders: Washington Sundar, Vivrant Sharma, Sanvir Singh, Samarth Vyas, Mayank Dagar
Spinners: Adil Rashid, Mayank Markande, Akeal Hosein
Fast bowlers: Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Marco Jansen, Kartik Tyagi, Umran Malik, T Natarajan, Fazalhaq Farooqi
Squad size for the Punjab Kings: 22 (overseas 7)
Squad strength: 22 (overseas 7)
Players bought: Sam Curran (US$ 2.25 million), Sikandar Raza (US$ 60,000), Harpreet Bhatia (US$ 48,000), Vidwath Kaverappa (US$ 24,000), Mohit Rathee (USD 24,000), Shivam Singh (US$ 24,000)
The Punjab Kings were expected to pay through the nose for an all-around talent, and they delivered by producing the highest transfer fee ever for an IPL player in Sam Curran. A bargain at his introductory price, Sikandar Raza is a spin all-rounder who can fill in for Liam Livingstone while he recovers from an injury.
Punjab had released Mayank Agarwal and could not sign an established Indian top-order hitter. Moreover, they did not bolster their spin offensive by hiring a well-known field ace. Punjab was left with a surplus of INR 12.2 cr once everything was said and done.
Openers: Shikhar Dhawan, Harpreet Bhatia
Middle-order: Shahrukh Khan, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Atharva Taide
Wicketkeepers: Jonny Bairstow, Prabhsimran Singh, Jitesh Sharma
Allrounders: Sam Curran, Sikandar Raza, Raj Bawa, Rishi Dhawan, Liam Livingstone, Shivam Singh
Spinners: Rahul Chahar, Harpreet Brar, Mohit Rathee
Fast bowlers: Arshdeep Singh, Baltej Singh, Nathan Ellis, Kagiso Rabada, Vidwath Kaverappa
Squad strength: 25 (overseas 8)
Players bought: Jason Holder (US$ 700,000), Adam Zampa (US$ 182,000), Joe Root (US$ 121,000), Donovan Ferreira (US$ 60,000), KM Asif (US$ 36,000), Abdul Basith (US$ 24,000), Kunal Singh Rathore (US$ 24,000), M Ashwin (US$ 24,000), Akash Vashisht US$ 24,000)
Results like this made the Royals appear to be the top team in the previous IPL. Because they frequently fielded a lineup with four No. 11s, they could not win. They needed one thing more than anything else: an all-around player in walks Jason Holder. Getting Adam Zampa at his starting salary was a steal as well.
Struggled mightily for a No. 4 hitter, losing to Brook and Nicholas Pooran. Neither of them materialised for me. We may have to settle for playing Devdutt Padikkal out of his preferred opening position once more.
Openers: Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Devdutt Padikkal
Middle order: Sanju Samson, Shimron Hetmyer, Riyan Parag, Joe Root
Wicketkeepers: Dhruv Jorel, Donovan Ferreira, Kunal Singh Rathore
Allrounders: Jason Holder, Akash Vashisht, Abdul Basith,
Spinners: Yuzvendra Chahal, R Ashwin, Adam Zampa, KC Cariappa, M Ashwin
Fast bowlers: Prasidh Krishna, Trent Boult, Navdeep Saini, Obed McCoy, Kuldeep Sen, Kuldip Yadav, KM Asif
Chennai Super Kings
Squad strength 25 players (Overseas 8)
Players bought: Ajinkya Rahane (US$ 60,000), Ben Stokes (US$ 1.98 million), Shaik Rasheed (US$ 24,000), Nishant Sindhu (US$ 73,000), Kyle Jamieson (US$ 121,000), Ajay Mandal (US$ 24,000), Bhagath Varma (US$ 24,000)
Ben Stokes comes out on top. Super Kings used Shivam Dube in various capacities last season; however, the team was ultimately unsuccessful. They have a potent bat they can depend on in Stokes, and he can bowl for them for two or three overs, if not the whole quota. To a large extent, he replaces Dwayne Bravo, who retired earlier this year. Even though he has been sidelined for quite some time with an injury, Kyle Jamieson is another solid buy.
After failing to re-sign N Jagadeesan as a wicketkeeper, the team has just Devon Conway and Ambati Rayudu as Indian alternatives to MS Dhoni. Apart from Ajinkya Rahane, CSK could not get other tested Indian hitters.
Openers: Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ajinkya Rahane, Shaik Rasheed
Middle order: Ambati Rayudu, Subhranshu Senapati
Wicketkeepers: MS Dhoni
Allrounders: Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali, Shivam Dube, Rajvardhan Hangargekar, Dwaine Pretorius, Mitchell Santner, Ravindra Jadeja, Ajay Mandal, Nishant Sindhu, Bhagath Varma
Spinners: Prashant Solanki, Maheesh Theekshana
Fast bowlers: Tushar Deshpande, Mukesh Choudhary, Matheesha Pathirana, Simarjeet Singh, Deepak Chahar, Kyle Jamieson
Lucknow Super Giants
Squad strength: 25 players (8 overseas)
Players bought: Nicholas Pooran (US$ 1.95 million), Jaydev Unadkat (US$ 60,000), Yash Thakur (US$ 54,000), Daniel Sams (US$ 91,000), Romario Shepherd (US$ 60,000), Amit Mishra (US$ 60,000), Prerak Mankad (US$ 24,000), Swapnil Singh (US$ 24,000), Naveen-ul-Haq (US$ 60,000), Yudhvir Charak (US$ 24,000)
All in all, it is a win-win situation. After releasing Dushmantha Chameera, the Lucknow Super Giants realised they needed to replace him with someone to protect Mark Wood’s batting average. They did not acquire a top-tier international swiftly, but they did improve depth with the additions of Daniel Sams and Romario Shepherd. Super Giants hired Jaydev Unadkat as insurance for Mohsin Khan, their leading left-arm seamer from the previous season, who has not played any cricket since the last IPL. They had trouble at No. 3 last season, so they paid INR 16 crore on Nicholas Pooran to attempt to fix the problem.
After letting Jason Holder go, they required a top-tier all-arounder but could not acquire one at the auction. Unfortunately, their efforts to capture Curran and Stokes could have been more fruitless. Josh Little, an Irish bowler, was also traded to the Titans.
Openers: Manan Vohra, KL Rahul
Middle-order: Ayush Badoni
Wicketkeepers: Quinton de Kock, Nicholas Pooran
Allrounders: Karan Sharma, Marcus Stoinis, K Gowtham, Deepak Hooda, Kyle Mayers, Krunal Pandya, Daniel Sams, Romario Shepherd, Prerak Mankad, Swapnil Singh
Spinners: Ravi Bishnoi, Amit Mishra
Fast bowlers: Avesh Khan, Mohsin Khan, Mark Wood, Mayank Yadav, Jaydev Unadkat, Yash Thakur, Naveen-ul-Haq, Yudhvir Charak
Squad strength 25 players (Overseas 8)
Players bought: Kane Williamson (US$ 243,000), Odean Smith (US$ 60,000), KS Bharat (US$ 146,000), Shivam Mavi (US$ 731,000), Joshua Little (US$ 536,000), Urvil Patel (US$ 24,000), Mohit Sharma (US$ 60,000)
All in all, it is a win-win situation. They needed a replacement for Lockie Ferguson, so they got Josh Little, the first Player from Ireland to be auctioned off in the IPL. To have a capable backup for Yash Dayal, they went out and got Shivam Mavi, an Indian fast. Last year, Gujarat’s top-order batting looked weak, so the team splurged on veteran Kane Williamson for cheap. Although they kept their core together, the Titans managed to irritate several of their benchwarmers.
Gujarat lost a chance to get a star all-rounder since they only had 19.25 crore to spend and already had Hardik Pandya on their roster. They were able to get Odean Smith as a reserve.
Openers: Shubman Gill, Kane Williamson
Middle order: Abhinav Manohar, David Miller, B Sai Sudharsan
Wicketkeepers: Matthew Wade, Wriddhiman Saha, KS Bharat, Urvil Patel
Allrounders: Hardik Pandya, Darshan Nalkande, Rahul Tewatia, Vijay Shankar, Rashid Khan, Odean Smith
Spinners: Jayant Yadav, Noor Ahmed, R Sai Kishore
Fast bowlers: Pradeep Sangwan, Alzarri Joseph, Mohammed Shami, Yash Dayal, Shivam Mavi, Joshua Little, Mohit Sharma
Squad strength 25 players (Overseas 8)
Players bought: Phil Salt (US$ 243,000), Ishant Sharma (US$ 60,000), Mukesh Kumar (US$ 670,000), Manish Pandey (US$ 292,000), Rilee Rossouw (US$ 560,000)
The victories come from adding Phil Salt and Rilee Rossouw to an already potent batting lineup. When Rishabh Pant needs a break, the Salt team has a second wicketkeeper on hand.
They also failed to get an all-rounder as insurance for Mitchell Marsh, who has a history of injuries. They lost out to Mumbai in the auction for Cameron Green with an offer of INR 17.25 crore, while they gave up on Nicholas Pooran for INR 15.75 crore.
Openers: David Warner, Prithvi Shaw, Yash Dhull, Phil Salt
Middle order: Sarfaraz Khan, Manish Pandey, Rilee Rossouw
Wicketkeepers: Rishabh Pant
Allrounders: Ripal Patel, Rovman Powell, Mitchell Marsh, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Aman Khan, Vicky Ostwal
Spinners: Kuldeep Yadav, Praveen Dubey
Fast bowlers: Anrich Nortje, Chetan Sakariya, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Khaleel Ahmed, Lungi Ngidi, Mustafizur Rahman, Ishant Sharma, Mukesh Kumar
Squad strength: 24 (Overseas 8)
Players bought: Cameron Green (US$ 2.1 million), Jhye Richardson (US$ 180,000), Piyush Chawla (US$ 60,000), Shams Mulani (US$ 24,000), Nehal Wadhera (US$ 24,000), Raghav Goyal (US$ 24,000), Duan Jansen (US$ 24,000), Vishnu Vinod (US$ 24,000)
All in all, it is a win-win situation. The city of Mumbai brought in INR 20.55 billion. Cameron Green, an all-around replacement for Kieron Pollard, cost them $17.5 million. Can bat at any spot in the lineup but excels when utilised at the top—good average speed for bowling. According to owner Akash Ambani, it “fits the age profile too,” as Mumbai starts to assemble a youthful, reliable core of players.
This bowling assault looks fantastic, especially if Bumrah and Archer remain healthy. If not, Mumbai would have problems because they need more money to purchase any replacements for Jhye Richardson.
Openers: Rohit Sharma
Middle order: Suryakumar Yadav, Tim David, Dewald Brevis, Tilak Varma
Wicketkeepers: Ishan Kishan, Tristan Stubbs, Vishnu Vinod
Allrounders: Cameron Green, Arjun Tendulkar, Ramandeep Singh, Shams Mulani, Nehal Wadhera, Hritik Shokeen, Arshad Khan, Duan Jansen
Spinners: Piyush Chawla, Kumar Kartikeya, Raghav Goyal
Fast bowlers: Jasprit Bumrah, Jofra Archer, Jhye Richardson, Jason Behrendorff, Akash Madhwal
Kolkata Knight Riders
Squad strength 22 players (Overseas 8)
Players bought: N Jagadeesan (US$ 109,000), Vaibhav Arora (US$ 73,000), Suyash Sharma (US$ 24, 000), David Wiese (US$ 121,000), Kulwant Khejroliya (US$ 24,000), Mandeep Singh (US$ 60,000), Litton Das (US$ 60,000), Shakib Al Hasan (US$ 182,000)
All in all, it is a win-win situation. KKR have a cheap backup to Andre Russell in David Wiese. They have two wicketkeepers who can also bat in the top order N. Jagadeesan and Litton Das. They should also benefit from Mandeep Singh’s expertise in the middle order.
KKR did not have much cash to spend; thus, they have not replaced Shivam Mavi (an Indian fast bowler), whom they released and could not re-sign.
Openers: Venkatesh Iyer, Rahmanullah Gurbaz
Middle order: Shreyas Iyer, Nitish Rana, Rinku Singh, Mandeep Singh
Wicketkeepers: N Jagadeesan, Litton Das
Allrounders: Andre Russell, Anukul Roy, David Wiese, Shakib Al Hasan
Spinners: Sunil Narine, Varun Chakravarthy, Suyash Sharma
Fast bowlers: Shardul Thakur, Lockie Ferguson, Tim Southee, Harshit Rana, Umesh Yadav, Vaibhav Arora, Kulwant Khejroliya
