IPL 2023: BCCI Confirm Player Availability, England & Australia Players To Play Entire League
The Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises have been informed by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) about the players’ availability for the 2023 season.
As per the Cricbuzz report, with the exception of Sri Lankans and Bangladeshis, shortlisted players from all other nations will compete throughout the entire competition.
Particularly for the IPL, despite the preparation for the Ashes, which begins in mid-June, the players from Australia and England will be totally available. IPL teams were in jeopardy for the availability of Australian and English players due to the Ashes but now it is clear.
The report further stated, The players from Bangladesh who were chosen for the Ireland series will attend the IPL for a limited amount of time. A side like Royal Challengers Bangalore would have to play without its important spinner Wanindu Hasaranga for the first four games because the Sri Lankan players won’t arrive until April 8.
The same mail while talking in regards to the English players says, “Full availability.” On the other hand, the Bangladesh players will be available for a limited window because of their series against Ireland.
“Players selected for Ireland series will be available from 8 April to 1 May,” the mail says as reported by Cricbuzz. As per the BCCI the Sri Lankan players will be available from April 8.
Meanwhile, all the franchises will be in action during the mini-auction on Friday, December 23 in Kochi and would look to rope in the players that they have on their radar and gear up well for the upcoming edition in the year 2023.
Another record was created in IPL auction history. Nicholas Pooran of the West Indies is the costliest seller so far as a wicketkeeper. He was bought by Lucknow Super Giants for 16 crores. Earlier, the highest-paid wicket-keeper was Mumbai’s Ishan Kishan (15.25 crores).
In the auction of uncapped players, the bid on Vivrant Sharma of Jammu and Kashmir surprised everyone. Vivrant, capable of batting with left spin bowling, was bought by Sunrisers for Rs 2.6 crore. Uncapped fast bowler Shivam Mavi was also bought by Titans for Rs 6 crore.
Apart from him, Bengal pacer Mukesh Kumar was bought by Delhi for 5.50 crores. Left-handed pacer Josh Little, who took a hat-trick against New Zealand in the T20 World Cup, also got a big bid. He was bought by Gujarat Titans for 4.40 crores. He was in the IPL auction for the first time.
According to a Cricbuzz report, the development is a big relief for the IPL teams, who were predicting limited or conditional no-objection certificate (NOC) for the players from England and Australia because of the Ashes series — the traditional and oldest cricket rivalry between the two teams.
“Full Availability. Players selected for ODI series against Afghanistan will be available from 30 March. Players playing final of Sheffield Shield to be available from 28 March,” the BCCI mail says of the Australian players. About the England players, the communique has only two words: “Full Availability.”
