IPL Auction 2023: 10 Uncapped Indian Players Who Might Cause A Bidding War

1. Samarth Vyas

Samarth Vyas recently made the headlines for becoming the fifth batter to reach a double century in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022 and he has been in great form in recent times. The Saurashtra batter had a fantastic strike rate of above 170 in the recently concluded Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2022 and was among the consistent run-scorers of the tournament.

He scored 317 runs in seven games at a terrific strike rate of 177.4 in the recently concluded Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy 2022. He carried his good form into the Vijay Hazare trophy in 2022 where he notched up 371 runs in seven games, including a double hundred against Manipur. He also ended up as the third-highest run-getter in the latest edition of the Saurashtra Premier League with 154 runs in four games at a brilliant strike rate of 143.93.

Samarth Vyas can play a big role in the middle order with his ability to hit maximums consistently and he is yet to bag an IPL contract. A lot of scouts have been looking out for talents like Samarth Vyas and the fact that he scores a high percentage of his runs through boundaries might work in his favor.

Franchises like Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad have a lot of slots to fill up and they certainly will have their eyes set on the 26-year-old given the impact he has had of late. He will be on the radar of a few franchises in the IPL Auction 2023.

2. Narayan Jagadeesan

Narayan Jagadeesan might end up among the most sought-after players at the IPL 2023 auction after his phenomenal performance in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022 season. The 26-year-old was released by the Chennai Super Kings franchise after featuring in just seven games since IPL 2020 and was never given a consistent run.

The Tamil Nadu wicketkeeper-batter has had a fantastic performance in the List A format having smashed a phenomenal double ton against Arunachal Pradesh recently. His 277 run-knock off just 141 balls comprised 25 fours and 15 sixes and it turned out to be the highest individual score in List A cricket around the world.

Also, Narayan Jagadeesan became the first batter to hit five consecutive tons in List A cricket and is topping the runs chart (Vijay Hazare Trophy 2022) by a huge margin. He is expected to be the top priority for a lot of teams in the IPL Auction 2023 given that he can do the wicketkeeping duties as well and can open the innings.

He will be on the radar of a few franchises in the IPL Auction 2023.

A fast bowler from Himachal Pradesh, Vaibhav Arora made a mark during the 2019-20 domestic season for his home state. Vaibhav Arora continued to build on that in domestic tournaments leading up to the IPL 2021, when he picked a hat-trick against Maharashtra in a Vijay Hazare Trophy match, to back up a good performance in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.

The Indian uncapped pacer Vaibhav Arora from Himachal Pradesh was bought by Punjab Kings at the IPL Mega Auction 2022. The player had set the default base price to INR 20 lakhs. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) were in a heated debate over the signing of 24-year-old Vaibhav Arora. Finally, the Punjab Kings were able to get their hands on the Vaibhav Arora for a whopping INR 2 crores.

The cricketer previously was a part of the Kolkata Knight Riders. Kolkata Knight Riders were impressed by him and picked him during the 2021 IPL auctions. However, he didn’t play a game in IPL 2021 but picked 3 wickets in 5 IPL 2022 games for Punjab Kings (PBKS). He will be on the radar of a few franchises in the IPL Auction 2023.

One of the youngsters from the class of 2018 that Kolkata Knight Riders reinvested in for the IPL 2022 was Shivam Mavi. The KKR management went hammer and tongs to sign him at the IPL 2022 mega auction and eventually grabbed him for INR 7.25 crore.

However, the 23-year-old pacer failed to repay the faith of the team and had an awful show with the ball. In the six matches Shivam Mavi played, he could only manage five wickets and leaked runs at an economy of 10.32. Following the string of mediocre performances, KKR decided against retaining the Noida-born for the next IPL 2023 season. He will be on the radar of a few franchises in the IPL Auction 2023.
