Why IPL auction 2023 is held in Kochi?

The auction of players for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 will be held in Kochi on 23rd December 2022.

Some of the famous urban cities like Bengaluru, New Delhi, Mumbai, and Hyderabad, along with The Turkish city of Istanbul, were in contention to host the auction. However, the BCCI has opted for the coastal Kerala city.

“Logistically, and considering the dates, Kochi turned out to be the most suited option,” a BCCI official told PTI.

This year’s bidding process will be a mini-auction, unlike the regular mega auction. The 10 IPL franchises have submitted their list of retained and released players.
