The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 auction will take place on Friday ighte (AEDT) in Kochi.

The one-day mini-auction will pave the way for all ten teams to finalise their rosters ahead of the flagship league's 16th season next year. While a maximum of 87 seats are available for clubs, the 30 slots available for the top international T20 stars will be a huge draw.

In fact, beginning with player 86, the process will be accelerated, with only those players in high demand being placed for a quick auction. Even though this is a minor event, convinced participants are expected to make a lot of money.

Here are seven players that could be the best buys.


1. Harry Brook

Brook has opened his door to significant bids after his swashbuckling performances through 2022 in both T20Is and Tests.

He was a key member of England's T20 World Cup-winning team in Australia last month and is considered the next great thing in English cricket. Along with veteran teammate Ben Stokes, Brook withstood the storm in the final match against Pakistan with a 23-ball score of 20, but the brash teenager also has what it takes to frustrate the opposition with his powerful strokeplay.

Brook's record in Test cricket has blown everyone away, with 480 runs in three matches with three centuries under his belt.

His performance in the Pakistan Super League earlier this year when he scored the second-fastest PSL century (48 balls) is further evidence of his big hitting. As the youngest player to accomplish the milestone (at 22 years and 362 days), Brook scored 264 runs in eight innings while striking out at an astonishing 171.42.'
