The IPL and South Africa have a very long history together. It also served as the venue for the IPL in 2009, and several South African athletes routinely participated in the tournament. AB De Villiers, David Miller, Imran Tahir, Dale Steyn, and Kagiso Rabada, among others, left an enduring mark on the competition.

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 South African players who might go unsold in the IPL 2023 auction.

For the 2022 Indian Premier League (IPL) season, the Rajasthan Royals named South African cricketer Corbin Bosch as Nathan Coulter-Nile’s replacement but he failed to get his name on the starting 11.

Bosch made a contribution to South Africa’s U19 World Cup-winning team, and he was honored as Player of the Match in the title match.

The South African pacer has featured in 43 T20 matches so far, taking just 18 wickets, and his batting record is also not particularly impressive, making him an unlikely buy in the IPL 2023 auction.
