Mumbai, Dec 2: 991 players have registered for the upcoming IPL 2023 mini-auction, scheduled on December 23 in Kochi. As per BCCI, amongst these 991 players, 714 are Indians, while 277 are overseas. Of these 185 are capped, 786 are uncapped and 20 players are from Associate nations.

The list consists of 19 Capped Indians, 166 capped international players, 91 uncapped Indian players who were a part of previous IPL seasons, and three uncapped international cricketers who were a part of previous IPL editions. There are 604 uncapped Indian players on the list while 88 uncapped international players who have submitted their names for the IPL 2023 auction.

The list can be further pruned down based on the instructions from the ten franchises. Apparently, the franchises have until December 9 to decide on the players whom they wish to see at the auction table.

Introduction of impact players

As per reports, the BCCI is also contemplating introducing the 'Impact Player' concept in the IPL. The concept was first introduced in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2022 and the feedback apparently was very good. The board wishes to implement it in the IPL as well.

The BCCI said in its note to the franchises, "Note that from IPL 2023 Season a tactical/strategic concept will be introduced to add a new dimension to IPL, wherein one substitute player per team will be able to take a more active part in an IPL match. The regulations pertaining to the same will be issued shortly."
