Mumbai Indians will retain the most as we take a look at the list of the best players in the 10 squad for IPL 2023.
The Indian Premier League may be nearly 5 months away, but its buzz never fades. While Indian players are busy playing the T20 World Cup 2022, the 10 IPL franchises are busy planning their player retentions ahead of the November 15, 2022 deadline set by the BCCI.
The IPL 2023 auction will not be a major affair like the 2022 auction. Teams were allowed to retain a maximum of 4 players last year, but in the IPL 2023 auction there will not be a such restriction. Additionally, compared to last year, teams will receive an additional 5 crores to spend; so a total of INR 95 crore.
Although the date of the auction is not yet confirmed, it should be scheduled for mid-December 2022. Nevertheless, let’s analyze all the players that we, the teams, have so far, and take a look at the list of the best players of the team selected for the 10 teams for the IPL 2023.
