The latest sensation in world cricket, Harry Brook, has set the stage on fire with his aggressive style of play in batting. In his brief Test career, the right-handed batter has made 809 runs in just ten innings at an average of 80.9.

Brook’s record in T20s is exceptional too. He has 2,432 runs in the format and forced his way into the eventual world champions England’s T20 World Cup squad after a series in Pakistan in which he scored 231 runs at an average of 79.33 and a strike rate of 163.01.

Sunrisers Hyderabad, who were looking to strengthen their batting, bought Harry Brook for ₹ 13.25 crore. The England star will be playing for the first time in India and is expected to set to explode in the IPL.

Shocked? Don’t be. Mohammad Arshad Khan is a star for the future. The young boy, hailing from Madhya Pradesh, has been specially recommended by Mumbai Indians player Piyush Chawla.

Although the left-arm pacer doesn’t have much experience, whatever little we have seen him bowl has left us stunned. The Madhya Pradesh star can swing the white ball both ways, quite reminiscent to the all-time great Wasim Akram’s bowling style.

Besides his excellent bowling, Arshad can also get the team some quick runs. His hitting lower down the order will be quite useful for the Mumbai outfit.

Mumbai Indians have included Mohammad Arshad Khan in their team for a base price of ₹ 20 lakhs.

Cameron Green

Another Mumbai Indians player has made it to the list. Although Cameron Green has shown the world what he is capable of doing on the cricket field, his IPL debut will be looked forward to by many cricket pundits.

After Pollard announced his retirement from IPL, Mumbai Indians were looking for someone who could fill his shoes. And thankfully, they got Green. Green is a right-handed batter who can open the innings, can come down at number 4, or come at number 6 and finish the innings. A versatile player.

Like Pollard, Green is handy with the ball. The right-arm pacer’s bowling prowess was on full display during the T20 Internationa against Pakistan, where he got 2 wickets for 16 runs in just 3 overs at an economy of 5.33.

The all-rounder has scored 139 runs in 8 T20Is, with 61 as his highest score. He was purchased by Mumbai Indians for ₹17.5 crores during the IPL 2023 mini-auction. Green is expected to land stability to the Mumbai Indians team and help them play to their potential in IPL 2023.

Yashasvi Jaiswal. This name has been making the rounds of the Indian cricketing circle for a while. The youngest double centurion in List A cricket and Player of the Tournament in the 2020 U-19 World Cup, Jaiswal is expected to continue his domestic cricket form into IPL.

During the recently concluded Irani Trophy, Jaiswal, representing the Rest of India, smashed a stunning double century in the first innings and a gritty hundred in the second innings to win the Irani Cup for his team.

While this is not the first time the Mumbai batter has produced such a magnificent performance. During the semi-final match against Uttar Pradesh in Ranji Trophy 2021-22, the left-handed batsman slammed centuries in both innings to help his team win the match.

Yashasvi Jaiswal, who plies his trade for Rajasthan Royals, has appeared for 10 IPL matches and scored 258 runs in 10 Innings. The left-hander’s highest score in IPL is 68.

Mumbai-born Sarfaraz Khan is one of the hottest properties in the domestic circuit. Sarfaraz has an envious record in the Ranji Trophy. He averages a whopping 80.47 in 36 matches, second only to the legendary Sir Don Bradman, who averaged 95.14 in 234 games.

During the 2022-23 Ranji Trophy season, Sarfaraz amassed 556 runs in just 9 innings at an average of a whopping 92.66. He notched up three big hundreds and one half-century during the season.

The 25-year-old was the leading run-scorer during the last Ranji Trophy season, amassing 982 runs at an average of 122.75 in Mumbai’s run to the final. He struck four hundreds and two half-centuries in that season and had a top score of 275 against Saurashtra.

In IPL 2023, the right-handed batter will be playing from Delhi Capitals. He will be responsible for finishing the Delhi innings with a flourish.

Harry Brook has started his career with a bang. The 24-year-old, who debuted last year, has scored 809 runs in just 6 Test matches at an average of 80.90. What’s more interesting is his strike rate. A whopping 98.77!!! Now, to get his game to the next level, Harry Brook has formed a partnership with St Louis Cardinals as a Major League Baseball ambassador.

“I’m really excited for this partnership and can’t wait to try my hand at hitting some home runs. I’m intrigued to see how different it is to cricket and what similarities there are too – will a home run feel as good as hitting a six?” Brook was quoted as saying in a statement.

He further added, “I’m also excited to learn from how other professional sportspeople go about their game and see if there are any transferable skills between batting in baseball and cricket. It’s going to be amazing to see baseball first hand in the US and help spread the word back in the UK and hopefully help build baseball’s fan base here.”

Brook, whose stocks are continuously rising, is a part of Sunrisers Hyderabad for IPL 2023. The right-handed batter was snapped by the 2016 IPL champions for INR 13.25 crores. The England star has an excellent record in T20Is. In just 20 matches, he has scored 372 runs with a top score of an unbeaten 81.

Additionally, England quick Issy Wong has also signed up to promote MLB. Wong, who is currently in India to participate in the Women’s Premier League, said, “It’s brilliant to be part of the movement to introduce baseball to a new audience outside the US.”

In every auction, there are few players who make their case very strong and franchisees will try and win every opportunity to get that player for their team. In this article, we will have a look at the 7 players who will be in very high demand at the IPL Auction 2023.

The Caribbean player has played 38 games and scored 247 runs at a strike rate of 123.50. Holder is very effective with his bowling. He has taken 49 wickets at an average of 24.02. Franchisees like Mumbai Indians and Punjab Kings will try to secure the all-rounder’s signature.

Harry Brook: The latest batting sensation from England, Harry Brook, will be among the most sought-after players by all the franchisees. Harry Brook showed everyone what he could do in the recently concluded Test series against Pakistan. The 23-year-old scored 468 runs in the series with three centuries and one half-century to his name. And the most shocking thing is he scored those runs at an astounding strike rate of 93.41.

Overall, Brook has been one of the best strikers of the ball, scoring 372 runs in 20 matches at a strike rate of 137.77. Franchisees like Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders will try their best to bring Brook into their squad.

Manish Pandey: “An Indian batsman”. Hearing this will light up the eyes of all the franchisee owners. A well-known name in the domestic circuit, Manish Pandey hasn’t had great IPL seasons. For IPL 2022, he was a part of the Lucknow Super Giants. He scored 88 runs in 6 matches and was dropped from the squad due to lack of form.

However, he has improved a lot since then. At the 2022 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, he scored 247 runs in 8 matches at an average of 61.75. A lot of the teams have a very weak batting order. Franchisees like Mumbai Indians and Gujarat Titans will be looking to secure his services.

Dasun Shanaka: Dasun Shanaka is one player who has been in terrific form over the last few months. While he left many impressed with his performance against India earlier this year, recently, he helped Sri Lanka chase 59 in the last three overs against Australia. His power-hitting is rising, and Shanaka can offer a few overs with the ball. Hence, he is a value cricketer and might be in demand for IPL Auction 2023.

In a total of 82 T20Is, he has scored over 1200 runs at a strike rate of 117.57. Also, he has taken 21 wickets at an average of 21. His finishing skills have been excellent in the recent past, with him giving everyone a show at the 2022 Asia Cup. Franchisees like Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad will try to sign the all-rounder.

Cameron Green: He can bat. He can bowl. He can field. The man does it all. Australia’s premier all-rounder Cameron Green will be one of the hottest players in the IPL Auction 2023. After starting his international career with the longest game format in 2020, the 23-year-old thrived in the white-ball circuit of late. In ODIs, he has amassed 270 runs in 12 games at a strike rate of 92.15 and bagged 11 wickets at an economy of 4.98.

In the shortest format, Green has smashed 139 runs in eight games at an amazing strike rate of 173.75 and picked five wickets for Australia in the shortest format. The all-rounder is very flexible. He can bat anywhere, from opener to being a finisher. Green is a great asset to have for any franchisee, and all the teams will surely get into a bidding war to buy the player.

Sam Curran: The “Man of the Tournament” of the 2022 T20 World Cup, Sam Curran has registered himself for the IPl Auction 2023. Sam Curran has previously played for Kings XI Punjab and Chennai Super Kings. The English all-rounder has scored 337 runs in 32 matches and taken 32 wickets in 32 matches.

The left-arm pacer has had a surge in his form. During the 2022 T20 World Cup, he bagged 13 wickets in 6 games, with a fifer coming in their inaugural match against Afghanistan.

Ben Stokes: Ben Stokes is one of the hottest properties in the international arena. Everyone wants a piece of him. Since the time he became England’s Test skipper, the team has won 9 out of the 10 completed Test matches. With his aggressive approach and go-for-the-win attitude, many teams would like to bring him to their squad.

Also, Stokes’ record in the IPL is not that bad. In 2017, Stokes started his IPL journey with Rising Pune Super Giants. The left-handed batter scored 316 runs in 12 matches. In addition to the runs, he also took 12 wickets at an average of 26.33. He has played 43 games, scored 920 runs, and took 28 matches.

In the T20I format, he has scored 585 runs and took 26 wickets in 43 matches. Ben Stokes is an overall package. The franchisees will definitely have a bidding war for the Englishman.
