Names like Sam Curran, Ben Stokes and Cameron Green are expected to create huge roars amongst the franchises come the auction day. In addition to these players, the English leggie Adil Rashid is also expected to grab the eyeballs in the upcoming auction (owing to his performance in the recently concluded T20 World Cup).

  • His innings in the final of the T20 World Cup 2022 will add to his value for teams looking for a genuine leader whom others can look up to in tough situations

Sam Curran

  • Already among those top all-rounders who have created quite the buzz every time he has participated in an IPL auction
  • An all-phase bowler who can bring wickets at the top, middle and death overs with his swing and other skills
  • Was the player of the tournament in the recently concluded ICC T20 World Cup 2022 where he picked up 13 wickets in 6 games at an impressive average of 11.38 and an economy rate of 6.52

Cameron Green

  • What caught the attention of the IPL franchises was Green’s exploits at the top of the order in the absence of David Warner during Australia’s recent tour to India 
  • He is only 23, so any franchise who can rope him can atleast be assured of a considerable time with them
  • His ability to score quickly and extract pace and bounce due to his height are the most glistening features that could attract a fat check
