Indian T20 League franchises might not have the services of their foreign support staff – Reports

According to close sources to the development, franchises are looking to request the Indian Cricket Board to reschedule the event. The mini-auction is set to take place in Kochi on December 23, just two days before Christmas. So, franchises might not have the services of their foreign support staff. They would be on a holiday. 

So, all teams will look for a rescheduled date when they can have the attendance of most of their personnel. However, it will only depend on the Board whether they will decide to change it or not. Speaking of retained and released players, a total number of 163 players have been retained. While a total of 85 players have been released from all teams. Several players like Sam Curran, Ben Stokes, and Cameron Green will look to bag some big money in this upcoming auction. 

Both the England players had a great 20-20 World Cup 2022 campaign. They were crucial in helping England to win that trophy for the second time in their history. Sam Curran won the player of the match award in the final while he won the player of the tournament award also. Ben Stokes also managed a match-winning knock in the final. So, all teams will look to keep an eye on these players ahead of the Indian T20 League 2023.
