The BCCI has released the list of shortlisted players who will appear in the IPL 2023 Auction. The list has been reduced from 991 players to 405 but only the first 86 Players will go under the hammer. The rest will be a part of the accelerated process that will begin from Player No 87.
In a communication with the franchise, the BCCI stated that the players from 1-86 will be presented for auction while the players from 87-405 will undergo an acceleration process. Franchisees will have to submit the list of their preferred players from the group of 87-405. After the submission of the preferred players list franchisees will be asked to submit the list of players unsold/ not presented from the list of 405 players for the second acceleration process. The process will be explained in detail during the auction briefing on 22nd December 2022 & the final auction will be held on December 23 in Kochi.
IPL 2023 auction process will commence with the round of capped players in sequence of batters, all-rounders, WK batters, Fast Bowlers & Spin bowlers followed by the uncapped players auction. The shortlisted 405 players are bifurcated into 273 Indians & 132 overseas players out of which four are from the associate nations. The total number of capped players that will go under the hammer is 119 while the number of uncapped players is 282 out of which four are from associated nations.
The franchisees may face issues in the availability of overseas players as the Ashes will commence in the mid of June which will make the unavailability of Australia & England doubtful. In addition, England will also lock horns with Ireland in a Test match starting on June 1. There are chances that Australian & England players will stay unavailable for the ending part of the tournament, however, the final update on their availability will be given to the franchisees by the BCCI.
