Only a couple of days remain in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 auction, which is set to take place in Kochi on December 23. All the 10 IPL franchises must be working their socks off to shortlist the players that they will buy in the auction. 

With as many as 405 players set to go under the hammer, all the players have been divided into separate brackets according to their base price, and for the very first time in the history of IPL, there is no Indian player in the top bracket of INR 2 crore. 

The 10 franchises can have a squad strength of up to 25 players each, but since many franchises have retained their core group of players, there are just 87 slots available to be filled in total, and in that, only 30 overseas players can be bought combined by all franchises.
