About one thousand players are expected to register their name for the IPL 2023 mega-auction. In India, the IPL auction was supposed to take place earlier this year but has now been delayed until early next month due to problems with some reasons.

Ahead of the auction, Lucknow and Ahmedabad will be allowed to pick 3 players each in their squad from the pool of released players. Out of these, there can be only 1 overseas player. Both the new franchises have been given a deadline of January 22 to finalize their 3 players.
