new Delhi. There are only a few days left in the mini auction of IPL 2023. 405 players will try their luck for the 87 vacant slots. A total of 21 players are included in the highest base price of 2 crores. Out of this, there is such a batsman, on whom every team will be eyeing in the auction. This batsman returned to the country’s T20 team after a gap of 6 years in 2022 and since then has been a turning point for bowlers. The proof of this is that this batsman has scored two consecutive centuries in International T20 this year. One of them came out of his bat in the T20 World Cup played in Australia this year. The name of this batter is Riley Russo.

Riley Russo, 33, will be a part of the IPL auction this year. He has kept his base price of Rs 2 crore and considering the form the left-handed batsman is in at the moment, there could be a bidding war between the franchises to buy him in the auction and this time in the auction if he breaks the old records of the auction. So no one will be surprised. Russo is currently participating in the Big Bash League and playing for Sydney Thunder. He batted brilliantly in the match against Melbourne Renegades on Sunday and scored 53 runs in 38 balls. That is, just before the IPL, Russo has shown the trailer of his batting.

Russo scored a half-century for Sydney Thunder
Russo came out to bat at number three in the match against Melbourne Renegades. The first two wickets of Sydney Thunder fell on the score of 23 runs only. After this, Russo worked to handle Sydney’s innings. He shared a 55-run partnership in 32 balls with AL Ross for the fifth wicket. On the basis of this partnership, the team of Sydney Thunder reached beyond 100 runs. Russo got out after playing an inning of 53 runs. But, laid the foundation for a respectable score for the team. After his dismissal, thanks to Oliver Davis (33 *) and Ross (39), Sydney scored 174 runs for the loss of 6 wickets in 20 overs.

Russo scored two T20 centuries in 2022
Russo is a power hitter batsman. He is the highest run scorer for South Africa in T20 this year. He has scored 372 runs in 11 matches at a strike rate of 176. Two centuries and one half-century have come out of his bat. He is one of the few batsmen in T20 this year who have scored two centuries. In such a situation, there can be a big bid on this batter in the auction.
