Here are the list of players who have find new teams ahead of the IPL 2023 mini-auction.

The preparations have already begun for the next season of the Indian Premier League as the mini-auction is highly likely to take place next month. The teams have already started making changes to support staff while some have made moves for the players ahead of the auction. The two teams were added last year in IPL - Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants which resulted in a mega auction but that will not be the case this time. It is going to be a mini-auction as the teams can retain the majority of players they want.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has already set a November 15 deadline for the franchises to send the final list of retained players. This time around, each team can retain up to 15 players and have to release the remaining 10. However, last year, the team size was set to a maximum of 25 while the minimum number of players in a team was 18.
