However, in the last edition of the tournament, the Gujarat franchise won it. Now, ahead of the Indian T20 League 2023, a mini-auction will happen in mid-December.

Meanwhile, Mumbai is the most successful franchise in the history of the tournament. Under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy, this franchise has managed to win this tournament five times.
