And so, this is where we bring the curtains down on our coverage of today's player auction. It was riveting, frenetic, manic, crazy - coin a new term if you have to our pull out a dictionary. We all need time to catch our breath after that so we're headed for some rest. Get yourselves much of the same too ahead of the weekend as we thank you for tuning into Sportskeeda's live coverage of today's IPL 2023 Auction. From the entire team here reading Prasen, Habil, Maanas, Pratyush and Soorya, we bid you good night and wish you a Merry Christmas! See you around soon. Toodles!

Phew! What. A. Day. We always expect the IPL Auction to come with a lot of madness, but this was something else. It all started when the Gujarat Titans placed an opening bid for Kane Williamson - something that possibly none of us saw coming. And then, in the 'set of death', things heated up and how! Sam Curran, Cameron Green and Ben Stokes all walk away with fat paycheques, while among the Indians, it's Mayank Agarwal who can boast of the same. Some shrewd picks, some surprises, plenty of shockers in terms of the lack of demand for some players and no bid placed for certain others. But hey, that's what this event is all about - you have to brace yourselves to expect the unexpected and we sure saw a whole lot of unexpected events unravel through the day in Kochi. But now, after 80 players have been sold across the ten franchises with 29 of them being overseas ones, we now await the dawn of the new year and the new season when the teams will take centerstage and battle it out on the park for IPL glory. That's for another day and literally, another calendar year though (sorry I couldn't resist that cliched joke).

Final list of players sold at the IPL 2023 Auction

Well, then. The day of the IPL auction always brings around a buzz with it. They say half the battle is won at the auction table and there's plenty that goes on behind the scenes for all franchises to try and perfect their squad. Of course, some fine-tuning is always necessary on some occasions but there's no time for that anymore. The squads are set and the list of players sold is final. In case you missed all the action, here's a quick recap!👇

21:43 (IST)23 DEC 2022

KKR squad for 2023

Korbo Lorbo Jeetbo reeee! The Kolkata Knight Riders had the smallest purse heading into the auction but they've made some shrewd international signings, including David Wiese, Shakib Al Hasan and Litton Das. N Jagadeesan and Vaibhav Arora are smart domestic picks too, helping the Knight Riders set up a fairly decent side, all things considered. Now, it'll all be about what they can do as a side on the field. Here's how their squad has shaped up! 👇

21:34 (IST)23 DEC 2022

SRH squad for 2023

After a few topsy-turvy years behind the scenes, Sunrisers Hyderabad hit the reset button once more. With the biggest purse to spend, they had the luxury to spend all of it. Unlike Punjab, they weren't shy of splashing the cash for their targets and rebuilding from scratch again. There are few significant buys there, none bigger than Harry Brook. It's exciting times for the Hyderabad fans, who hope that the sun will rise and shine on them soon. Here's what their squad looks like.👇

21:26 (IST)23 DEC 2022

PBKS squad for 2023

Punjab Kings had the second-best purse before the auction began. Surprisingly, they've still got ₹ 12 crore in the bank. Well, that obviously won't be used later on but they've made some decent additions, including the most expensive buy of all time, Sam Curran. Will this finally be the year it all clicks for Punjab? Well, their squad certainly promises plenty of fireworks. Take a look!👇

21:23 (IST)23 DEC 2022

DC squad for IPL 2023.
The Delhi Capitals were barely active throughout the auction. They went all out for Cameron Green but lost out to the Mumbai Indians. But of course, they filled up the rest of their slots with backup options. Here's how their squad looks like ahead of IPL 2023!👇

21:18 (IST)23 DEC 2022

RR squad for 2023

From one Royals to another, we're talking about the Rajasthan Royals! Some smart buys, most importantly the inclusion of Jason Holder adds some much-needed balance to the runners-up from last season. Inclusion of the likes of Adam Zampa and Joe Root along with a couple of exciting prospects, Rajasthan have gone about their business in an organized manner. Will they Halla Bol their way to the title this time out? Here's how their squad looks for that challenge. 

21:14 (IST)23 DEC 2022

RCB squad for IPL 2023
Ee sala...nope. Nope, we aren't getting there! But it was a quiet auction for the Royal Challengers Bangalore today. Along expected lines too, given that they had most of their squad ready post their retentions. Who joins Faf du Plessis and Co. though after today's bidding process? Read away to find out!👇

21:13 (IST)23 DEC 2022

LSG squad for 2023

After going through the highs and lows of an IPL campaign, the Super Giants from Lucknow will be hoping to take a step further in the tournament next year. Spending a significant amount of their purse on Nicholas Pooran, LSG have stacked up all the positions in their squad as Gautham Gambhir suggested that the franchise wants to give the captain KL Rahul a team with some significant firepower. Well, firepower they do have in their squad. Check it out!👇

21:09 (IST)23 DEC 2022

GT squad for IPL 2023
Aava De it was last year and they made the first move today by signing Kane Williamson at base price. Some shrewd, cost picks followed thereafter but do they have it in them to defend their title? Here you go below - read away at their roster for IPL 2023!👇

21:04 (IST)23 DEC 2022

MI squad for IPL 2023

From one marquee signing to another. Mumbai Indians spent most of their budget on Australian all-rounder Cameron Green. With some clever buys like Jhye Richardson also in the mix, the five-time champions seem all set to come back strongly after a disappointing campaign. How does their squad shape up? Have a look!👇

21:02 (IST)23 DEC 2022

CSK's squad for IPL 2023
Alrighty! The auction is done so it's time to look at how the teams stack up. Let's start with one of the teams that made headlines today courtesy the marquee signing of Ben Stokes - the Chennai Super Kings. Who else did they add to their roster today and how are they shaping up? Can they bounce back after a disastrous 2022? Here's a look at their roster!👇

20:42 (IST)23 DEC 2022

Seems like KKR had Parnell as a backup option should they have missed out on Shakib. Why didn't Punjab Kings go for him though? A backup for Sam Curran sure wouldn't hurt? But well, that is that. Stumps are drawn at the IPL 2023 Auction in Kochi!

20:41 (IST)23 DEC 2022

Ekant Sen is the final name from the list. With a base price of ₹20 lakh. Someone asked for him but aren't going to pick him up? It doesn't look like it. He's goes unsold!

20:40 (IST)23 DEC 2022

Wayne Parnell comes up once more... and is unsold once more. No takers for the South African all-rounder at ₹75 lakh. Unsold!

20:40 (IST)23 DEC 2022

Well well well! Roooooooooooooot is the cry now! He joins England's white ball captain Jos Buttler at the Rajasthan Royals. We surely didn't see that coming this late in the auction alright. And again, Shakib Al Hasan is back as a Knight Rider.

20:40 (IST)23 DEC 2022

Shakib Al Hasan at a base price of ₹1.50 crore is next. He's going to be heading back to the Kolkata Knight Riders next season.

20:39 (IST)23 DEC 2022

Joe Root is the first one up and STOP THE PRESS! Joe Root finally has an IPL deal! Rajasthan Royals snap him up at a base price of ₹1 crore.

20:39 (IST)23 DEC 2022

Right. We're back for one last time. 

20:29 (IST)23 DEC 2022

It is lit alright. Joshua Little is the first Irish player in the IPL and his national skipper Andy Balbirnie is unsurprisingly thrilled to bits!

20:28 (IST)23 DEC 2022

20:27 (IST)23 DEC 2022

A small halt here as we could see some last minute swoop-ins by these franchises that have an overseas slot remaining. But we're nearly done for the day in Kochi.

20:24 (IST)23 DEC 2022

Now then, KKR, RR and PBKS have slots left. An overseas slot each at that. They'd do well to fill those up mind you - there are only eight allowed per side and given how long the tournament goes and the possibility of injuries, you always want to have enough options to turn to.

20:23 (IST)23 DEC 2022

Prashant Chopra goes unsold at a base price of ₹20 lakh. Abdul PA is the last player of the evening. Rajasthan Royals acquire his services for a base price of ₹20 lakh!

20:23 (IST)23 DEC 2022

Yudhvir Charak is snapped up by the Lucknow Super Giants for a base price of ₹20 lakh. Raghav Goyal is another one at the same base price, moving to the Mumbai Indians next season.

20:22 (IST)23 DEC 2022

LSG needed a backup for Mark Wood and they've gone in for Naveen-ul-Haq. That's a little bemusing - they offer contrasting attributes as seamers. 

20:22 (IST)23 DEC 2022

No takers for Dilshan Madushanka this time around either. The same goes for England's fast bowler, Luke Wood. 

20:21 (IST)23 DEC 2022

Another Akash. This one's Akash Singh, who goes unsold at a base price of ₹20 lakh. Following it up is Naveen-ul-Haq from Afghanistan. The medium pacer gets an opening bid for ₹50 lakh from the Lucknow Super Giants. That is also the closing bid. Naveen moves to the Super Giants!

20:20 (IST)23 DEC 2022

Shrewd business by RR! Akash Vasisht is a hard-hitting left-handed batter and that is a fantastic acquisition. Adds cover for Devdutt Padikkal.

20:20 (IST)23 DEC 2022

Akash Vasisht, the all-rounder is heading to the Rajasthan Royals for the base price of ₹20 lakh.

20:20 (IST)23 DEC 2022

Johnson Charles, the big West Indian has no takers. He goes unsold! As does Suryansh Shedge, going unsold at a base price of ₹20 lakh.

20:19 (IST)23 DEC 2022

Rassie van der Dussen at ₹2 crore, anyone? Nope? What about his South African teammate Wayne Parnell at ₹75 lakh? None for him either. Both go unsold!

20:18 (IST)23 DEC 2022

KM Asif has been acquired by the team led by his Kerala teammate Sanju Samson. They also take Murugan Ashwin. Because two Ashwins are better than one, right?

20:18 (IST)23 DEC 2022

KM Asif, formerly with CSK, is now a Rajasthan Royal ₹30 lakh. Murugan Ashwin comes to Rajasthan Royals at his base price of ₹20 lakh. Mandeep Singh finds his way to the Kolkata Knight Riders for a base price of ₹50 lakh.

20:17 (IST)23 DEC 2022

Anmolpreet Singh is sold to SRH for a base price of ₹20 lakh. Dinesh Bana goes unsold once more.
