Written by Vipin Darwade

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is reportedly organising the Indian Premier League (IPL) auction for the 2023 edition in mid-December – with the 16th being the likely date.

The BCCI has discussed the matter with the ten franchises during informal interactions. The report also adds that it is going to be a mini auction with the purse will be INR 95 crore, 5 crores more than last year. Each team will have at least INR 5 crore in their reserves to start the auction, which can be increased by releases and trades of players.

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is reportedly looking for a trade for out-of-favour Ravindra Jadeja or can be released by the franchise completely. CSK have approached Gujarat Titans (GT) for a swap with Shubman Gill but the move has been dismissed by the defending champions. Some other teams, including Delhi Capitals, have inquired about Jadeja with CSK reportedly vehement about not wanting to do anything with the star all-rounder.

IPL) will return to its original, pre-COVID-19 home-and-away format from the 2023 season, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has conveyed to the board’s affiliated state units. The IPL has been held at only a few venues since the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020 as the lucrative league unfolded behind closed doors across three venues in UAE — Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi.
