It's that time of year again when IPL franchisees scramble to fill the gaps in their squads in preparation for the new season.

Unlike last time, this will be a mini-auction with a maximum of 87 players available from a pool of 405 players. Each squad can have a maximum of 25 players, as is customary.

However, The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has informed the franchises about the availability of the players for the 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL), and it turns out that barring Sri Lankans and Bangladeshis, players from other countries will partake for the entire duration of the tournament.

According to the mail, the Bangladesh players, selected for the Ireland series, will come for the IPL for a limited time. "Players selected for Ireland series will be available from 8 April to 1 May," the mail says.
