The economy rate was just 6.99. However, this performance was for one season only. This is the reason after two seasons, Punjab Kings released him.

Later Mujeeb was part of the squad of SRH in the IPL 2021. But, the Sunrisers Hyderabad were not lacking any more spinners in the playing eleven. So, he got only one match to play.

However, the overall performance of this Afghanistani player is impressive enough. The teams will definitely bid for him in the IPL 2023 mini-auction.

This is the Bangladesh player with extreme experience in IPL. From 2011 to 2019 he was part of the teams Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders. In 2020, there was a ban on him from the International Cricket Council. Therefore, he was not able to join that season.

Also, none of the franchises bid for him in the year 2022. But, the IPL 2023 could bring a change. His performance in international cricket is attracting a lot of eyes. Therefore, in the IPL 2023 mini-auction, the teams are considering him.

4. Adam Zampa

In the T20 World Cup 2021, he was the second leading bowler. In just 7 matches he pulled out 13 wickets. Surprisingly, in IPL 2022 none of the team bid for him.

Believe me, no one can ignore his astonishing performance in the T20 World Cup of the year 2022.

5. Adil Rashid
