IPL 2023 Auction: Details Of Owners Of All The Franchises


The IPL 2023 auction is just over a month away; the BCCI and the IPL governing council have finalized to conduct the IPL 2023 mini-auction on December 23 in Kochi. The deadline for submitting the list of the released and retained players for all 10 IPL franchises is 5 PM on November 15.

This year it will be a mini-auction and a one-day affair, as opposed to the mega-auction and a two-day event it was last time. Then, the 8 original squads were revamped and a couple of new teams were added to the tournament. Now, teams don’t have to release and buy a lot of players.

Since this is a mini-auction, all 10 franchises will have the opportunity to retain as many players as they wish, of course, adhering to the maximum limit of 25 players in the squad and a maximum of 8 overseas players.
