IPL 2023: Preparations for IPL 2023 have begun. The mini auction for this season will be held on December 23 in Kochi. The respective franchises have already submitted the list of players they have attached and released to the BCCI. Released players entered their names in the auction. But some legendary players are yet to put their names in the auction. Based on this, it seems that there is no possibility for them to play in the next IPL.
Bravo’s distance from IPL
Former West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo did not put his name in the auction. Bravo represented Chennai Super Kings for years. But this time he was not attached to Chennai. Released. After CSK released him, Bravo did not put his name in the auction. Based on this, it seems that he has retired from IPL. From now on, we will see the brilliance of Bravo in the Indian T20 League.
Thank you, DJ Bravo for all the memories, an incredible IPL career, leading wicket taker in the history of the league, valuable contribution always with the bat.

Smith, Labuschagne too
Australian players Steven Smith and Marnus Labuschagne also did not give their names for the IPL auction. Both of them are in good form now. In the ongoing Test series with the West Indies, Smith and Labuchane scored double centuries. It is reported that they are staying away from the IPL 2023 auction to prepare for the upcoming Ashes series. But these players are not sold in the season in 2021 IPL. Then no franchise showed interest in taking him.
Franchises to change IPL mini auction date- BCCI refused!
IPL 2023 A mini auction for the edition will be held on December 23. But some franchisees have requested the board to change this date to Christmas. Even so, there are reports that the board is not going to change the dates of the auction.
It seems that a senior BCCI official has spoken on this. Some franchisees have asked to change the auction date to celebrate the Christmas holidays. We can understand their request. But there is no possibility to change the date. Because there are many equations in it. Changing the date should change everything. As there is no such situation, the mini auction will be held at that time. According to him.
