All ten participating franchises have been asked to send in their final list of the released and retained player by Tuesday, November 15. In a bid to bolster their squads for the next edition of the tournament, each team has been granted an extra sum of Rs 5 crore, elevating the pursue value to Rs 95 crore for the 2023 mini-auction.

Punjab Kings have the biggest purse heading into the auctions, carrying forward Rs 3.45 crore from last year’s remaining purse value to take their total tally to Rs 8.45 crore.
