IPL auction: Cricketers who could rake in the moolah | Cricket News


NEW DELHI: Some of the world’s top cricketers will be among the 405 players participating in Friday’s auction for the 2023 Indian Premier League.
Consider five stars who can get a nice paycheck as 10 franchises bid in Kochi:
Ben Stokes
High-power left-handed pitcher and dangerous right-hand pitcher Ben Stokes last played IPL in 2021, when he dropped out midway through injury and opted out of this year’s edition.
Stokes, 31, played a key role in England’s T20 World Cup win in November and this month led the Test team to victory in the popular series in Pakistan.
He set an IPL record in 2018 when Rajasthan Royals bought him for $1.96 million in auction and is currently listed in the top base price bracket of $246,000.
Sam Curran
All-rounder Sam Curran was named the Tournament Player of the Tournament at the T20 World Cup after his skills as a “death pitcher” knocked out opposing players in finals. make him a powerful weapon for England.
The agile middleweight and left-arm attack had a successful stint with the Chennai Super Kings but parted ways after a back injury and missed the 2022 edition.
Curran has an attack rate close to 150 and is placed, like Stokes, in the top tier of the auction list, so Chennai and their warhorse captain MS Dhoni may want him back as they hunt for a fifth title.
Green Cameron
Standing 6 feet 6 (1.98 meters) tall with a demonic swing, Cameron Green was originally selected as a fast pitcher for Western Australia but has also emerged as a fearsome pitcher.
The Perth Scorchers star, 23, made a big impression in India with his attacking batting during the tour in September, when he made 118 runs with an strike rate of 214, 54 when opening the score.
Countryman David Warner has warned Green that his first IPL play in a busy early 2023 will include touring India, the Ashes and the World Cup, which could be too much.
“It’s going to be a really tough year. I don’t think anyone disagrees with that. But I think it’s a really good opportunity,” Green said.
Poor Nicholas
West Indies stars have long thrived at the IPL and left-hander Pooran has played in tournaments around the world, from Australia’s Big Bash to the Abu Dhabi T10.
The hitter and goalkeeper resigned as captain of the West Indies white team after the team’s T20 World Cup defeat and was also launched by the IPL Sunrisers Hyderabad last month.
But with a T20 strike rate over 141, Pooran ranks among the top players, including fellow West Indies Jason’s keeperin the auction.
Rilee Rossouw
Left-handed Rilee Rossouw has been an influential player for South Africa, with his brilliant T20 form spanning two centuries in October.
The 33-year-old destroyed India’s attack to help Proteas consoling victory in Indore and scored 109 goals to crush Bangladesh in the T20 World Cup group stage match.
He was claimed in the T20 franchise round, but was never able to join the IPL in 2014 and 2015 before returning unsold before this year’s season.
