1. Ben Stokes (Sunrisers Hyderabad)

With the highest purse remaining among franchises, SRH are expected to bid for England’s star all-rounder Ben Stokes. The Hyderabad-based franchise might also be tempted to hand over the leadership role to Stokes in the upcoming edition.

SRH need a captain and a seam-bowling all-rounder who can win them matches. Stokes is the ideal player who fit in all three roles. Stokes can take the responsibility in the middle order. He can also team up with Bhuvneshwar Kumar to bowl in the death overs.

2. Cameron Green (Delhi Capitals)

Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting recently hinted that the Capitals franchise have saved a large chunk of money to bid for Cameron Green. Green made a name for himself in the shortest format. He opened for Australia against India and smashed 61 off 30 balls in Mohali. He repeated that feat with 52 of 21 in Hyderabad to attract IPL franchises’ attention. With Rs 19.45 Cr in the purse, DC will go all in for Green.

3. Sam Curran (Punjab Kings)

Ahead of IPL 2023 Auction, Punjab Kings released West Indies all-rounder Odean Smith. They also have a spot open for an international bowling all-rounder. To note, Curran started his IPL career with PBKS and the Punjab-based franchise might want to purchase Curran once again.

4. Narayan Jagadeesan (Kolkata Knight Riders)

The two-time IPL champions released a total of 16 players ahead of the next season, which includes both Jackson and Indrajith. But with purse constraints and a lot of spots to fill, KKR can go for some domestic stars. KKR will target Jagadeesan who had a superb season in the recently conducted Vijay Hazare Trophy. The wicketkeeper-batter smashed 830 runs in 8 matches at an average of 138.33. He finished as the highest run-getter.

5. Kane Williamson (Chennai Super Kings)

CSK’s long-standing skipper MS Dhoni is set to play his last IPL season. With Dhoni retiring, the Yellow Army needs to have a backup skipper. CSK team management might think of purchasing Kane Williamson and hand over the captaincy to him once Dhoni retires. To note, CSK has INR 20.45 crore in its bank. The four-time champions might need to spend a decent chunk of that amount to grab Williamson in the auction.

6. Shivam Mavi (Mumbai Indians)

After releasing a host of players, Mumbai Indians do not have domestic Indian pacers to fall back on. Shivam Mavi with a decent Mushtaq Ali and Vijay Hazare Trophy could be a right fit. Mavi is capable of easily breaking the 140 kmph barrier. With Jofra Archer and Jasprit Bumrah there in the squad, Mavi could be a valuable addition.

7. Vasuki Koushik (Royal Challengers Bangalore)

Karnataka’s pacer Vasuki Koushik finished as the joint-leading wicket-taker in the recently concluded Vijay Hazare Trophy.  The speedster grabbed 18 wickets in just nine games with his side bowing out of the competition in the semi-finals. RCB who will be searching for a genuine pacer in the upcoming IPL auction, will want to bag Koushik.

8. Mayank Agarwal (Lucknow Super Giants)

The Super Giants did not have a solid number three during their fourth finish in IPL 2022 season. They tried as many as six players at three, but none could get going. Mayank Agrawal can be their best bet in the IPL mini-auction. He can bat aggressively, as well as drop anchor when either of the openers KL Rahul or Quinton de Kock fails at the top. Agarwal had a dismal season in IPL 2022 with PBKS, and the veteran will be keen to prove a point

9. Manish Pandey (Rajasthan Royals)

Ahead of IPL 2023 auction, Rajasthan Royals released the likes of Rassie van der Dussen and Daryl Mitchell. With a power-packed batting line-up including Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, and Sanju Samson, RR might require a top-order who canreplacement play an anchor role. Pandey has a lot of experience in IPL and he can be an ideal Number 3 batter for the Jaipur-based franchise.

10. Reece Topley (Gujarat Titans)

The defending champions Gujarat Titans released their express pacer Lockie Ferguson ahead of IPL 2023.  Reece Topley who has been the star white-ball performer with the ball for England can be an ideal replace for Ferguson. Topley might be an ideal partner for Mohammed Shami to bowl with the new ball. The left-arm pacer has also shown his capability to bowl in the death overs. It remains to be seen if GT will bid for the tall lanky pacer or not.
