1. Mayank Agarwal
An attacking opener with a proven track record who also plays international cricket for India is worthy in gold in the mini-auction with limited options. Mayank Agarwal will be one such option available after the Punjab Kings (PBKS) released him ahead of next season.
Mayank Agarwal failed to maintain his batting form after he was appointed the skipper of Punjab Kings in IPL 2023. However, he is a seasoned campaigner in the Indian Premier League and has a career-strike rate of over 134 in the mega league.
Mayank can blast the bowling attack from the word go and make the most of the fielding restrictions. He will be no short of suitors in the upcoming auctions and the Karnataka batter is likely to be the most expensive Indian player in the auctions for IPL 2023.
