List of expensive uncapped players at the IPL 2023 auction

Shivam Mavi became the most expensive uncapped Indian player in IPL 2023 auction. Mavi entered the auction with a base price of just INR 40 Lakhs. However, a total of 4 different franchises engaged in a bidding war for the pacer. In the end, the defending champions, Gujarat Titans, emerged victorious and signed the pacer for INR 6 Cr.

The second on the list is a pacer, Mukesh Kumar. Kumar is a pacer hailing from Bengal. Mukesh rose to fame after he received his maiden India call-up for the Bangladesh test series. Delhi, Chennai, and Punjab took part in the bidding war but DC won with the highest bid of INR 5.50 Cr.

Jammu and Kashmir all-rounder, Vivrant Sharma was a surprise pick at the auction table. Vivrant rescued his home team with a match winning innings of 157 runs in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. That inning impressed the SRH scouts, and they got the youngster for a whopping amount of INR 2.6 Cr. Vivrant will join his fellow J&K peers, Umran Malik and Abdul Samad, in the SRH squad.

Punjab batter, Mayank Dagar, and Andhra wicketkeeper, KS Bharat received contracts of INR 1.8 Cr and INR 1.2 Cr respectively.
