Ravindra Jadeja Will Not Leave CSK: Auction May Be Held On December 16
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is planning to hold the auction for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 in mid-December this year. According to media reports, its date has been fixed as December 16 this year.
During a recent informal discussion, the franchises who have apparently received cues from the BCCI or the IPL authorities, have discussed the possible IPL schedule.
This time the auction process will be shorter. Its venue has not been decided yet. At the same time, the date of the league has not been revealed yet. It is being speculated that after the restoration of the home and away format, the league can be organized in the last week of March next year.
The budget of the teams is 5 crores more than last year
This time each team will have a budget of Rs 95 crore for the players’ auction, which is Rs 5 crore more than last year. This means – each team will have a minimum reserve amount of Rs 5 crore to start with. Changes in the budgets of teams also hinge on whether the team releases or trades its players.
There were reports of differences between Jadeja and CSK management.
During IPL 2022, when news of differences between Ravindra Jadeja and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) management surfaced, speculations had intensified that star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja would either be released or replaced in the next season of IPL. Trade will be done with the team. Recently, it was also revealed that there is a trade between CSK and Gujarat Titans (GT) regarding Jadeja and Shubman Gill, but both franchises refused to accept this.
CSK clarified its stand
At the same time, some other teams had also requested Jadeja’s trade. Including Delhi Capitals, but CSK management says that they have no plan to not keep Jadeja on the team. He is definitely one of the best players in the world.
It is being speculated that apart from Jadeja, Rahul Tewatia and R. Gujarat Titans have received several requests for Sai Kishore’s trade, but the winning team has turned down all offers.
