Chennai Super KingsAfter a disastrous season, CSK need to rethink. They need a mini overhaul. But most importantly, they will look for a captaincy option. With MS Dhoni set to hang his boots at the end of the season, they will keep look for someone who can lead the team. It’s unlikely that Ravindra Jadeja will take the mantle anytime soon after failing his first test.

CSK finished 9th in a 10-team league last season. CSK have to fill 7 spots with Rs 20.45 Cr in purse. Two of them will be overseas. Hence, Sam Curran and Kane Williamson will be their prime targets.

CSK Auction Targets: 

  1. Sam Curran
  2. Kane Williamson
  3. Mayank Agarwal

Retained players: MS Dhoni (Rs 12 Crore), Devon Conway (Rs 10 Crore), Ruturaj Gaikwad (Rs 6 Crore), Ambati Rayudu (Rs 6.25 Crore), Subhranshu Senapati (Rs 20 Lakh), Moeen Ali (Rs 8 Crore), Shivam Dube (Rs 4 Crore), Rajvardhan Hangargekar (Rs 15 Lakh), Dwaine Pretorius (Rs 50 Lakh), Mitchell Santner (Rs 1.9 Crore), Ravindra Jadeja (Rs 16 Crore), Tushar Deshpande (Rs 40 Lakh), Mukesh Chowdhary (Rs 20 Lakh), Matheesha Pathirana (Rs 20 Lakh), Simarjeet Singh (Rs 20 Lakh), Deepak Chahar (Rs 14 Crore), Prashant Solanki (Rs 12 Lakh), Maheesh Theekshana (Rs 70 Lakh)

Sunrisers HyderabadAnother season, another overhaul. Since letting go of David Warner, SRH are still searching for the right mojo. But SRH will once again have to appoint a new captain after releasing Kane Williamson. While it is a possibility that SRH will buy Williamson back at a lower price, they will go to the auction with all guns blazing.

With Rs 42.2 Crore remaining purse, SRH have made Ben Stokes and Cameron Green their prime targets. Ben Stokes will be the top captaincy choice. But they have too many 13 slots to fill including 4 overseas. They also need a wicketkeeper.

Punjab Kings: Another team who undergoes overhaul almost every season is Punjab Kings. This time, it’s no difference. PBKS have a new coaching setup and a new captain. The Karnataka duo of Anil Kumble and Mayank Agarwal were let go. While Shikhar Dhawan is the new captain, Punjab Kings have the firepower. With Rs 32.2 Cr, they have to fill 9 slots including 3 overseas. But it will be enough to pounce on someone like Cameron Green for a middle-order firepower. They also need a replacement for Mayank Agarwal.

Royal Challengers BangaloreOne of the most inactive teams in the auction will be RCB. With just 8.75 Cr left in purse, RCB do not have many to play with. But they won’t be bothered. RCB have their bases covered. All they need is to plug in the holes. After letting go of Jason Behrendorff and Sherfane Rutherford, RCB will go for an overseas fast bowler.

Kolkata Knight RidersKKR are in a real fix. They have plenty of spots to fill but do not have enough money left on the table. All they can target are some of the domestic players. With 11 slots left to fill and just 7.05 cr in purse, KKR will have a tough time. But new coach Chandrakant Pandit is well-versed with the domestic draft. As for the overseas slots, KKR will have to make strategic moves. What they need is a keeper after letting Sheldon Jackson and Baba Indrajith both go. Narayan Jagadeesan could be a good option. But he will be in demand too. KKR also need an opener and Mayank Agarwal could be an option on the cheaper side.

  • Phil Salt

Rajasthan RoyalsLike many others, the 2022 runners-up Rajasthan Royals do not have enough money to play with in the auction. However, they have a set team. All they need is a middle-order replacement for Daryl Mitchell. Riley Rossouw could be the one to look at. However, he could come at a hefty price tag. RR will also need an all-rounder replacement for James Neesham. While RR would have been desperate to get Ben Stokes back. But with just 13.2 Cr left in purse, that’s a distant dream.

Lucknow Super GiantsWith 23.55 Cr left in purse and the core retained, LSG will be the dark horse of IPL 2023 Auction. They will target replacements for Jason Holder and Dushmantha Chameera. They also need a middle-order batter after struggling with the spot in Manish Pandey. Riley Rossouw is one option besides Cameron Green. With LSG showing keen interest in Taskin Ahmed, he can be a good replacement for Chameera.

Mumbai IndiansThe five-time champions have hit a rock-bottom in the last two seasons. The absence of Jofra Archer and poor form of players were the reasons. But they now have a Kieron Pollard-size gap to fill. Furthermore, they need domestic bowlers who can be the next Jasprit Bumrah. With release of 13 players, MI have already made a statement.

With 20.55 Cr left, MI will also try and go for someone like Cameron Green to fill in Pollard void. But they also need a reliable leggie like Adam Zampa or Adil Rashid.

Delhi CapitalsWith the release of Shardul Thakur, Delhi Capitals have managed to find some money despite retaining most of the players.
