England’s team has introduced a dramatic shift in thinking and playing style in white-ball cricket all over the world. Over the years, England players have played a significant role in the Indian Premier League. The likes of Kevin Pietersen, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Liam Livingstone, Jofra Archer, etc, have been leading from the front in the IPL. 

The 2023 IPL auction will take place in Kochi on December 23. Unlike the previous season’s mega-auction in February, the BCCI will conduct a mini-auction for the forthcoming season.

Ahead of the auction, all ten franchises released a list of players they retained and released from the squad. 

A total of 85 players were released ahead of the auctions, and some of the big names include Mayank Agarwal, Kane Williamson, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, and Pat Cummins. While the players mentioned above are likely to receive heavy cash in the auction, several players fear going unsold. 

Let’s have a look at the 3 players from England who might go unsold in the IPL 2023 auction. 

Tymal Mills

Tymal Mills fell short of the high expectations placed on him during his return IPL season. Tymal Mills, who cost the Mumbai Indians INR 1.50 crore, took 6 wickets in 5 games while bowling with an economy rate of 11.18. Even if a bowler is an expert in death overs, an economy rate of 10 or above is totally unacceptable.

Tymal Mills, a left-arm pacer for England, struggled to regulate the flow of runs and was limited to just 5 games as a result. Tymal Mills came back five years after making his IPL debut with RCB in 2017. A death-over expert, MI purchased him with 1.5 crores.

Jason Roy was purchased by Gujarat Titans for a staggering two crore in the mega-auction, demonstrating their confidence in the England opener. However, Roy withdrew from the competition due to bio-bubble fatigue, disrupting the team’s lineup for the entire season.

Due to his commitment concerns and poor batting performance, GT decided to dismiss Roy for the upcoming season. The 32-year-old is unlikely to find a buyer as a result. Due to Roy’s poor performance, the England team that won the World Cup benched him for the World Cup. Roy has only participated in 13 IPL games, but he has scored 329 runs.

Currently, England’s Benny Howell is one of the best players in T20 cricket. For 40 Lakhs, Punjab Kings selected him in the 2022 Indian Premier League auction. 

Howell is a versatile player who can hit the ball far in slog overs, but it is his ability to use the ball in a variety of ways that makes him stand out as a package. He has 14 different variations of the slower delivery up his sleeve, which makes it difficult to bat against him if you’re a batter. 

For the Punjab team, he was unable to play in any games, and with age working against him, it is now tough to imagine Howell returning to the IPL.
