Cameron Green and Ben Stokes to be the Match-Winners in IPL 2023

The IPL 2023 auction that took place in Kochi on Friday saw the records going for a toss. The overseas all-rounders, Ben Stokes, Camron Green and Sam Curran were the biggest earners with Mumbai Indians, who were already looking for a replacement for Kieron Pollard after the all-rounder hung his boots from the cash-rich league earlier, spent a whopping Rs 17.5 crore and roped in Australia’s Green in the squad.With the all-rounders grabbing the limelight, it seems that the inception of “Impact Player Rule” hasn’t really affected the dynamics of the auction.Former India spinner Anil Kumble in a conversation with CricketNext.com stated that Cameron Green does bring a lot to the table and the kind of conditions that Wankhede stadium has on offer will suit his batting and bowling.“It suits the decision-making that Akash (Ambani) explained around going for a young player. They even showed it in the last auction with Dewald Brevis, Tilak Verma coming through. Some of the young players have come really well, not just in the last couple of years but over the years for Mumbai Indians. We have seen the Pandya brothers, Jasprit Bumrah really grow. It’s really nice to go back to that kind of formation and have Cameron Green,” he said.“Moreover, his bowling type and batting will suit Wankhede stadium. The bounce and pace is good and probably similar what Green is used to play in Australia. I guess, it’s a good pick for MI,” he added.
