Sri Lankan athletes frequently draw attention to themselves due to their outstanding performances. Sri Lankan cricketers, including Lasith Malinga, Mahela Jayawardene, and Kumar Sangakkara, have consistently had a significant impact on the Indian Premier League’s development in a variety of ways.
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 Sri Lankan players who might go unsold in the IPL 2023 auction.

Dushmantha Chameera has demonstrated that when healthy, he is capable of terrorizing the opposing batters with his pace and aggressive lengths. With nine wickets from 12 games for the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in the previous season, Chameera was equally remarkable.

However, due to recent injury issues, Dushmantha Chameera has been in and out of the Sri Lankan team, which could also hamper his chances in the upcoming IPL auction.
