5 team that could target Cameron Green in IPL 2023 mini auction

Indian Premier League

Australian all-rounder, Cameron Green has grabbed the spotlight and is going to be a hot pick at the upcoming IPL 2023 auction.

Cameron Green took the world by storm in just a short period post his debut. The 23-year-old played just 8 T20s for Australia so far. However, in those games, Green scored at the strike rate of 173 and clipped 5 wickets in total. The all-rounder has impressed the fans with his crazy hitting ability at an accelerated pace.

Moreover, he has the ability to bowl at a pace of 140, which is his biggest asset. Surely, he is a good fit for any T20 lineup. As a result, teams are preparing to compete for the all-rounder’s services.

Here are 5 teams that can bid for Cameron Green in IPL 2023 auction

1. Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians released Kieron Pollard for IPL 2023. Pollard chose loyalty over career and announced his retirement from the IPL. MI already lost the Pandya brothers in the mega auction. Hence, they are in desperate need of a proper all-rounder. The absence of a quality all-rounder hurt them a lot last season. Hence, MI is likely to fight tooth and nail for the all-rounder.

2. Sunrisers Hyderabad

Sunrisers Hyderabad released a majority of their players, including their captain, Kane Williamson. Hence, they are likely to have a busy day on the auction table. Green’s inclusion is a must for the orange army. They need a quality international player who can maybe lead the team as well.

3. Lucknow Super Giants

Lucknow picked Jason Holder for their inaugural season. However, they refused to retain the all-rounder for IPL 2023. Hence, the spot for an international all-rounder is empty. LSG has a good purse amount as well. Hence, they can go behind the likes of Ben Stokes and Cameron Green to fill in the empty shoes.

4. Rajasthan Royals

Ben Stokes was a jewel in the Rajasthan Royals’ squad. However, Stokes refused to feature in IPL 2022. Hence, they decided to let him go at the mega auction last year. However, the all-rounder is back in the fold for IPL 2023. Rajasthan could try to re-sign Stokes, but the cost would be prohibitively expensive. Hence, Cameron Green is another option for them to take up the all-rounder’s responsibility.

5. Punjab Kings

Punjab has a love-hate relationship with Australian players. Over the years, they picked a lot of quality Australian players that eventually led to fallouts. For all rounding roles, Punjab picked Odean Smith last year, who performed well for them. However, they did not retain Odean for IPL 2023. Hence, they could target Green in the auction. Green can open the inning. So, he is a perfect replacement for Mayank Agarwal. Moreover, he chips in a few overs at a good pace. Hence, he would be a perfect fit for the franchise.
