Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) have cut their ties with New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson, and Punjab Kings (PBKS) have parted ways with Mayank Agarwal.
Former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar still feels the two will get teams at the mini-auction of the Indian Premier League (IPL) season 2023.
He also named one of the England players who will be the ‘hottest property at the IPL 2023 auction.
Ben Stokes scored a match-winning fifty in the ICC T20 World Cup final between England and Pakistan at the MCG.
After missing the 2022 edition of the IPL, Stokes is expected to return for the new season. Manjrekar said Stokes will be the top pick at the IPL 2023 auction.
“Ben Stokes will be the hottest property. He is a match-winner. If you qualify for the play-offs, these are the players who perform well,” Manjrekar told Star Sports.
Sam Curran is also expected to go for a huge sum. He was named the Player of the Match in the T20 World Cup 2022 final and also won the Player of the Tournament in Australia.
“Sam Curran will be on the list of many teams as he can bat and bowl. His bowling will suit slow pitches in the league,” he added.
