Cricket News: List of players with base price of 2 crore in IPL 2023 Auction | Players with 1, 1.5 and 2 crore base price

The auction for the 16th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is set to be held in Kochi on 23 December. A total of 991 players have put their name in the pool, which includes 185 internationally capped cricketers and a whopping 786 uncapped ones. 20 players belonging to associate cricketing nations have also put their name in the list.

Out of them, only 19 are capped Indian players whereas there are 166 capped international stars. There are 94 uncapped cricketers, including merely three foreigners, who were a part of the previous seasons of the IPL. 604 uncapped Indians make up for almost two-thirds of the entire auction pool but it remains to be seen whether they attract abundant interest from the franchises as most teams have only minor gaps to plug this time around. 

Here, let us see a breakdown of the players according to the price bracket that they have placed themselves in.

Rs 2 crore

Tom Banton, Sam Curran, Chris Jordan, Tymal Mills, Jamie Overton, Craig Overton, Adil Rashid, Phil Salt, Ben Stokes, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Cameron Green, Travis Head, Chris Lynn, Kane Williamson, Adam Milne, Jimmy Neesham, Rilee Rossouw, Rassie van der Dussen, Angelo Mathews, Jason Holder, Nicholas Pooran

The Rs 2 crore price band includes a host of England internationals who lifted the T20 World Cup in Australia this year. However, the key attraction will be in-form all-rounders like Sam Curran, Ben Stokes, Cameron Green and even Jason Holder to an extent. New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson and Caribbean star Nicholas Pooran, both released by the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), are a part of this list as well.

Rs 1.5 crore

Sean Abott, Riley Meredith, Jhye Richardson, Adam Zampa, Shakib Al Hasan, Harry Brook, Will Jacks, Dawid Malan, Jason Roy, Sherfane Rutherford

The Rs 1.5 crore bracket has some interesting games of players who are arguably unlikely to get picked by any of the sides in the auction. Most teams are already packed with their share of international stars and there are fewer probabilities of them going after names who aren’t necessarily big guns especially in a mini auction. The likes of Jason Roy, Dawid Malan, Shakib al Hasan and Sherfane Rutherford amongst others from this pool might not be the right fit for most of the teams under current circumstances and could very well end up being unsold at the end of the entire process.

Rs 1 crore

Mayank Agarwal, Kedar Jadhav, Manish Pandey, Mohammad Nabi, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Moises Henriques, Andrew Tye, Joe Root, Luke Wood, Michael Bracewell, Mark Chapman, Martin Guptill, Kyle Jamieson, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, Daryl Mitchell, Heinrich Klaasen, Tabraiz Shamsi, Kusal Perera, Roston Chase, Rakheem Cornwall, Shai Hope, Akeal Hossein, David Wiese

Meanwhile, the Rs 1 crore bracket comprises players who have a fairly better chance of being in the wishlist of multiple franchises’. For example, ex-Punjab Kings skipper Mayank Agarwal could be a great addition to the top-order of certain teams like SRH and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) whereas Manish Pandey, Kyle Jamieson, Rakheem Cornwall are some of the other names to keep an eye out on.

Afghan stars like Mohammad Nabi and Mujeeb ur Rahman can find some takers as well as Joe Root has also put his name in the mix after opting out of the auction for the last few years.

But overall, most teams are likely to target players belonging to the topmost bracket of Rs 2 crore along with inboarding some promising young stars who have made heads turn with their consistent and impressive performances in the on-going domestic season.
