The operations of the 16th edition of the indian premier league have been working. The IPL 2023 auction is set for December 23 in Kochi. The main event will provide an opportunity for franchises to fill in the gaps in their squads and become a better version of themselves.

One will witness many top level cricketers at the upcoming auction. However, among them, there are some players who have proven themselves on the T20 circuit time and time again and will add a lot of value to a team. These T20 stars are likely to catch the eye of multiple franchises and may even spark a bidding war between teams.

These are the players who will be in high demand at the IPL 2023 auction:

5. Little Joshua

little joshua has set the international circuit on fire with his phenomenal bowling performances. He has appeared in 26 T20Is this calendar year and has won 39 wickets with an economy of 7.58, which is impeccable given that he throws a lot late innings.

At the T20 World Cup 2022, Little was the go-to man for skipper Andrew Balbirnie for crucial moments, and the 23-year-old delivered on most occasions. He took 11 wickets in seven games played in the marquee tournament with an economy of 7.00. This includes a sensational hat-trick against New Zealand.

Little also proved his worth in the 2022 Hundred and took an incredible tally of 13 wickets in just five games with an economy of 7.42. Ireland’s pacemaker has been in good form and many IPL franchises would like to add a true wicket-taker to their arsenal. Also, being a left-arm pacer provides variety to a bowling attack and thus one could witness teams go to great lengths to sign him at auction.
