The Indian Premier League 2023 Auction will start on December 23rd, 2022. The Auction will take place in Kochi, Kerala, all in one day. Since this is not a large-scale auction, BCCI chose to complete it in a single day. This auction will now feature the players that weren’t signed by any teams or kept by their previous franchises. Because it is a mini-auction, the teams have a much smaller budget than in seasons past. India will host the 2023 IPL (as per reports).
Sanju Samson will serve as the captain of the Rajasthan Royals. Prior to the IPL 2023 mini-auction, which will take place on December 23 in Kochi, it has released nine players while keeping its core. James Neesham, Daryl Mitchell, Rassie van der Dussen, Corbin Bosch, and Nathan Coulter-Nile are the five overseas players that Rajasthan has released. The other released by RR are Anunay Singh, Karun Nair, Shubham Garhwal, and Tejas Baroka.
The Right to Match (RTM) option will not be available in the IPL auction of 2023. Each team may select a squad of no more than 25 players. The team can only select a maximum of 8 foreign players from among these. 75% of each franchise’s total salary cap must be used. Beyond the salary cap, there can be no purchases made. In the IPL auction 2023, each team is subject to a total salary cap of Rs. 95 crores. 5 crores more than the previous auction, to be exact. After retentions, Samson’s men will still have 13.2 crore INR in their pockets.
