If you are a true cricket fan. You must be aware that one of the biggest cricket events is coming up. Yes, I am talking about the Indian Premier League 2023. But, we have another equally exciting thing taking place before the league. And, that is the IPL 2023 mini-auction. It will be more interesting than the earlier seasons. There are a few extra funds put in each team’s purse.
There are a lot of new players taking part this season. Among all the players in the auction, there is an exceptional all-rounder. His name is Cameron Green. This player has quite an experience with Indian grounds. He played 8 matches in the T20 format.
Here are three teams who are going to bid for this player.
CSK’s performance was always exceptional. It was among the top two teams so far in the IPL. Though, in IPL 2022, their performance was below average. The team played fourteen matches in the last season of the IPL. And, they won just four of those.
Now the team has let go of many players before the IPL 2023 mini-auction. The international all-rounder, Dwayne Bravo is also not part of the team. So, CSK is looking for a player to replace him. In total, they have vacant spots for two international players. Also, they have left with INR 20.45 crores in hand to bid. And, they have just one all-around with them. That is Moeen Ali. So, they are looking for another all-rounder. Thus, Cameron Green comes into the picture. They will definitely go for him. The team and the captain (MSD), will try their best to get him to play from their side.
The other team who has eyes on this marvelous player is Lucknow Super Giants. Earlier they had Jason Holder, the all-rounder. He did a great job as a bowler. But, his batting was not as per the expectations. Therefore, the team decided to drop him before the IPL 2023 mini-auction.
Holder was supposed to bat at two positions. Either he will be on number four or as a finisher. But, neither of them proved to be effective for him. His performance as a batsman was not that good.
Therefore, the LSG king forward to bid for Cameron Green, He can definitely replace Holder. Green can play at one down or at the fourth position. But of course, he can not open it. As those batting positions are appropriately covered by KL Rahul and Quinton De Kock.
With Green in the team, LSG will have an outstanding combination of bowlers and batsmen. They will have nine bowlers in total. And, the batting lineup will go up to 8 players. Thus, LSG wants Cameron Green in their team.
SunRisers Hyderabad is rebuilding the team just like Chennai Super Kings. They dropped many players too. They let go of an epic finisher, Nicholas Pooran. One of the all-rounders, Romario Shepherd is gone too. Their opener Kane Williamson is also dropped by them.
Yes, everyone is thinking about SRH dropping those great players. They must have a reason for it. Anyways, they have a huge amount of INR 42.25 crores with them for the IPL 2023 mini-auction. And, Cameron Green can fill any of the vacant positions in the team easily.
His lowest strike rate in powerplay is 108.52. Whereas, the highest is 214.55. That are definitely quite impressive records. Examining those records and his innings against India before the T20 world cup, made him an excellent choice for SRH.
The records of Cameron Green are impeccable. This is the reason why the mentioned teams will go for him in the IPL 2023 mini-auction. In fact, other teams like Punjab Kings, Delhi Capitals, and almost every other team want him to play for them. This increase in demand will make him an expensive player to get. We are not sure which team will own him. But, one thing I can say for sure. There will be a lot of entertainment in the IPL 2023 mini-auction. Also, this season of IPL will be more fun. Let’s wait for it to start. Till then have fun.
