possible combos in IPL 2023: There is curiosity among fans about how the IPL 2023 mini auctions will pan out. Teams like SRH and PBKS head into the auction with big salary purses. They are the ones who are expected to do most of the heavy lifting in the auctions.

As is the case with most mini auctions, few players are certain to fetch a humungous number. Examples of Pat Cummins, Kyle Jamieson, and Chris Morris stand out. These high-value signings open up exciting combinations.

We look at a few such possible combos in IPL 2023:

#4 Cameroon Green & Tim David as finishers for MI

Tim David in the last few games of IPL 2022 showed why he was talked about so highly. He pulled games for Mumbai Indians out of nowhere. But an out-of-form Kieron Pollard didn’t help the team’s cause. The writing was on the wall. Mumbai needed a fresh new talent who could double up as a finisher and a seamer. 

If fans know a bit about MI then they sure know that they love big names. It won’t be a surprise if Mumbai goes all out to acquire Cameroon Green in the auction. He could bowl the heavy ball and hit the ball long. It will be a treat to watch both the Aussie finishers turning up in blue and gold!

#3 Joe Root dancing to KKR’s tunes

He is the only one among Fab Four who hasn’t featured in a single IPL game so far. Joe Root has finally given his nod to participate in the IPL. He is not a regular member of England’s T20I side. It hasn’t helped Root’s cause that he hardly plays competitive T20 cricket. But he wanted to play IPL 2023 as it would help him for the ODI World Cup scheduled later next year. 

A side like KKR who don’t have enough money in the bank but need quality batsmen at the top might find someone like Root invaluable. It could just be the perfect marriage!

#2 FRIENDS Reunion – Rahul & Mayank 

They opened the innings together not so long ago for the national team. KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal are childhood friends. They know each other’s game inside out. Both Rahul and Agarwal formed a potent combo at Punjab. Agarwal’s audaciousness gelled well with Rahul’s safety-first approach. But earlier this year Rahul moved to Lucknow. Agarwal was named the captain of Punjab. 

All it took was an indifferent year for Agarwal to be removed from captaincy. He is back in the auctions this year. There is a lot of speculation about Rahul wanting Agarwal at LSG. If this happens it will surely add another chapter to their friendship. 

#1 Stokes takes SRH to a new dawn can be possible combos in IPL 2023

There is little doubt that SRH last year looked a little short on ideas in the latter half of the tournament. The ever-reliable Kane Williamson cut a sorry figure at times. SRH it felt needed a fresh leader at the helm. The side needed an inspirational captain who could usher them into a new era. 

There is arguably no one else in world cricket apart from Ben Stokes at the moment who could do that. Stokes along with coach Brendon McCullum has revived England’s flagging fortunes in no time. He could just be the right candidate to transform an insipid SRH side.
