IPL 2023: Team Wise One Player Who Will Warm The Bench Throughout The Season. The IPL auction 2023 was a one-day affair that saw some really high biddings that shattered all previous records. England’s Sam Curran, Ben Stokes, Harry Brook, and Australia’s Cameron Green were some of the costliest buys.
Some of the franchises have decided to retain a few overseas players for IPL 2023 who did not get a chance in the last season.
All-rounders raked in the big bucks at the recently held IPL auction 2023, with the 10 franchises going all out to pick the best from the set of players available. Punjab Kings broke the bank and paid INR 18.5 crores to acquire the services of England’s Sam Curran, the most expensive buy in IPL history.

The franchises spent INR 167 Crores to buy 80 players in the bidding arena of the 405 players registered officially. Sunrisers Hyderabad bought the most number of players, having acquired the services of as many as 13 players. The side also had the highest remaining purse heading into the auction with 42.25 Cr. to spend.
Chris Jordan and Dawid Malan were among the unsold players in the IPL auction 2023 that included several Indian stars as well like Abhimanyu Easwaran, Priyank Panchal, Varun Aaron, Sandeep Sharma, and Shreyas Gopal to name few.

Kyle Jamieson (Chennai Super Kings)
New Zealand pacer Kyle Jamieson was roped in by the Chennai Super Kings for INR 1 crore which is a massive INR 14 crore pay cut from his previous auction fees in IPL 2021 where he had represented the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Kyle Jamieson had an unimpressive IPL 2021 season as he could only manage nine scalps to his name from as many matches at an economy of 9.61. Notably, the Auckland cricketer who had backed out of the IPL 2022 mega auction has not played a single T20I since March 2021 due to a back injury, and therefore, he could be warming the bench for the IPL 2023 season.
The likes of Subhranshu Senapati, K Bhagath Varma, Rajvardhan Hangargekar, Ajay Mandal, Nishant Sindhu, Simarjeet Singh, and Prashant Solanki may also warm the bench.
