The IPL 2023 auction’s potential date has been decided upon in an informal discussion between the league’s 10 clubs and the BCCI’s IPL governing council. According to Cricbuzz, the auction is scheduled to occur in December of this year, most likely on December 16.
It will be a mini-auction, and the location hasn’t been decided yet. The home and away format of the IPL 2023 is anticipated to begin in the fourth week of March. 95 crore rupees will be the remuneration for the mini-auction, which is 5 crores higher than the previous year. By trading the players or releasing them before the auction, the franchise may raise the winnings.
The pay budget was fixed at Rs 90 Cr at the IPL 2022 Auction. But based on the projections, it will be Rs 5 Crore more expensive at Rs 95 Cr. It will be Rs 100 Cr for the next IPL season. Franchises’ pay budgets, however, may increase or decrease based on the trade-ins. Although the date of December 16 is being planned, it might change. The BCCI expects the auctions to take place in mid-December.
Women’s Indian Premier League Date
The Women’s Indian Premier League, which has been much anticipated, will take off in February of next year, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly earlier said on Thursday. At a gathering, Sourav Ganguly spoke to the media and stated, “The eagerly anticipated women’s IPL is now being worked on by the BCCI. In February of the following year, we anticipate the Women’s Indian Premier League.” In addition, Ganguly denied rumours that he could go to Dubai and added that the International Cricket Council (ICC) leadership is not in his control.
Jhulan Goswami, 39, who is the most prolific wicket-taker in women’s ODI cricket history, made her international debut for India in 2002 against England in Chennai. On Saturday, after more than 20 years, she will play her last and final match at the historic Lord’s Cricket Ground against England.
“For so many years, she was a superb cricket player. If my daughter plays cricket, I’ll tell her to follow in Jhulan Goswami’s footsteps. It never happened. I have a terrific relationship with Jhulan, and I think her retirement at Lord’s will be wonderful. She has spoken with me numerous times about the growth of women’s cricket since becoming the board president,” Ganguly added
