The mini-auction of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 edition auction is set to take place on 23 December in Kochi. Many top players are likely to be under the hammer with huge prices.
Cameron Green is a decent all-rounder that can change the fortune of the game with his all-around abilities. He has experience playing in Indian conditions and hopes to perform according to his potential.
Green has played a total of 8 T20I matches and scored 139 runs with the best score of 61. His ability to decimate the opposition bowlers at a strike rate of 173.75 makes him a dangerous batter.
Here we look at the 3 teams that can bid for Cameron Green in IPL 2023 auction.
#1 Chennai Super Kings
Chennai Super Kings are the second most successful team after Mumbai Indians in IPL history. CSK struggled badly in last year’s season as they lacked penetration with batting and bowling abilities.
MS Dhoni-led side decided to release Dwayne Bravo before the IPL auction. With a 20.45 Crores purse remaining and 2 overseas slots left, Cameron Green could void Bravo and could be an ideal asset for CSK to win their fifth IPL title.
CSK has only Moeen Ali as the all-rounder in the squad. Green could join the MS Dhoni-led side in this year’s IPL, which will make them a much more competent side.
#2 Delhi Capitals
Delhi Capitals is another franchise that could buy the Australian all-rounder. Under the captaincy of Pant, the DC franchise could not qualify for the knockout stage in the 2022 edition of IPL. They lacked a genuine all-rounder.
Green is a decent all-rounder as DC decided to trade Shardul Thakur. The all-rounder has big power-hitting abilities and can be a value add with his skills.
With a 19.45 Crore purse remaining for Delhi Capitals and 2 overseas slots left, the management could buy him to seek all-around abilities as Rovman Powell is a genuine power-hitter in the squad.
#3 Punjab Kings
Punjab Kings was not able to qualify for the playoff stage after a decent start to IPL 2022. They decided to release West Indies all-rounder Odean Smith before the auction.
Cameron Green could be an ideal choice with only Liam Livingstone being a foreigner all-rounder. PBKS has 3 overseas slots remaining and a 32.2 Crores purse remaining, Shikhar Dhawan and Co could slot the hard-hitting Australian all-rounder in the squad.
PBKS has never won the IPL title since its inception in 2008. Cameron Green can create an impact with his all-around abilities and could help their side to win their first IPL title.
