The mini-auction for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 has been an exhilarating one as all 10 franchises have finalised their squads. While we have seen some high-voltage drama and a bidding war for several players, there were a few who failed to fetch a single bid and went unsold.
Meanwhile, Punjab Kings, who headed into the showpiece event with a purse of INR 32.20 Crore had a total of 9 vacancies left to be filled in their squad, out of which 3 were reserved for foreign players. The Red Army made some terrific purchases and built a formidable squad for the 16th edition of the cash-rich league.
