The TATA IPL 2023 Auction will be held in the months of December or January in Kochi. The IPL teams are all settled. The retained players and released players have both been made public. With that being said, all eyes are now set on the players who are available in the IPL 2023 auction. The Mumbai Indians are one franchise that is always in the news for their heavy expenditure and for their smart choices at the auction table. Here is an in-depth look at the top 3 options they can go for in the IPL 2023 Auction:
Cameron Green/Ben Stokes will be at the IPL 2023 Auction:
The Mumbai Indians have let go of many players. They have emptied their bowling lineup totally. They have a lot of money available and also many slots to fill. The void of Kieron Pollard is the biggest point of concern. Pollard was a big-match player. There is only one Kieron Pollard. But if any player can match Polly’s standard it has to be Ben Stokes. Ben is one of the top all-rounders on the planet. He is a proven match-winner like Pollard. He can bat and bowl and is electric in the field.
If the Mumbai Indians want to play a gamble, they can also invest in the promise of Cameron Green. This young Aussie has a lot in store for the cricketing world. He isn’t as explosive as Pollard but can certainly bowl better than Pollard. These players will be priced at above 10 Crores but will be worth the money.
With Mumbai giving away Tymal Mills, Riley Meredith, and Daniel Sams there is an evident opening for Chris Jordan. Jordan can be a like-to-like replacement for Sams. He isn’t as good a batter as Sams but he covers it up with his bowling. Jordan was also a part of the World Cup-winning England team. Jordan is a complete T20 package. He is like a rocket on the field. His arsenal of variations with the ball is also very big. He has cutters, slower ones, wide yorkers, and much more. He can be valued at 4 to 5 Crores if he comes in at the correct time.
Shahbaz Nadeem will be at the IPL 2023 Auction:
Shahbaz Nadeem might be targeted by the Mumbai Indians as the Mumbai Indians lack the presence of a seasoned spinner. Last year they bought Mayank Markande and the lesser-known Murugan Ashwin but it cost them. The inexperience of these bowlers was evident. It will be great to see if the Mumbai Indians will again bid for Markande as he is their home-grown prospect. Nadeem on the other hand is a good option. He is a left-arm spinner and can extract drift from the Mumbai pitch.
