It will soon be less than 6 days till the IPL 2023 Mini auction starts. On December 23, 405 players will be auctioned off in total. There are 273 Indians and 132 foreign players, of whom 4 are from associate countries. A total of 19 elite people from such a large pool make up the highest bracket slab (INR 2 Crore).
The 2 Crore basic price club does not include any Indian players. The only two Indian players having a base fee of INR 1 crore are Manish Pandey and Mayank Agarwal. Even seasoned professionals like Chris Lynn and Adil Rashid pushed themselves to at least close a contract for INR 2 crore. The majority of the players in this bracket will start a bidding war, but some might not sell.

Let’s have a look at the 5 overseas players from the 2 cr price bracket who might go unsold:
IPL 2023 Auction: 5 Overseas Players At INR 2 Crore Base Price Who Might Go Unsold In Mega Auction
Overton has played for England in 7 ODIs, where he has taken 5 wickets. He has no T20I experience, despite having 70 T20 wickets in the same number of games, therefore he is not a reliable seamer. In the previous The Hundred competition, he was only able to participate in 1 game. Overton has participated in a total of 7 T20 games in 2022, taking 12 wickets. In T20 cricket, Overton averages just 15 runs with a strike rate of 123.
When the IPL 2022 mega-auction was held last year, England bowler Craig Overton positioned himself in the INR 2 crore range but was not purchased. He has once again placed himself in the highest base price category, and none of the teams appear to have good reasons to purchase Overton at such a high price considering that he hasn’t accomplished anything in the period between the two auctions.
