KKR and CSK started the bidding war while GT and RR made a fierce bidding war which Gujarat Titans won by beating RR as they did in the IPL 2022 final match.

The defending champions Gujarat Titans bagged the service of Shivam Mavi for INR 6 crore during the IPL 2023 Auction.

Shivam Mavi who made his IPL debut for KKR remained as the part for the last 5 seasons but the 2 times IPL champions released Mavi ahead of the IPL 2023 Auction owing to his high price cap.

Shivam Mavi made his Twenty20 debut for the Kolkata Knight Riders in the 2018 Indian Premier League on 14 April 2018.

KKR retained Shivam Mavi for INR 7.25 crores ahead of the IPL 2022 mega auction where he played just 6 matches and bagged only 5 wickets at an economy of 10.31.

Mavi was excited to get a good deal from his ‘favourite franchise after KKR’.

“Gujarat Titans is one franchise I wanted to play for after KKR, and I am glad that I got a chance to play for it. I did not think about the price tag, but the main target was to go to Gujarat Titans and I am happy,” Mavi told the media.

“I have heard that with Hardik Pandya as the captain and Ashish Nehra as the coach, the Gujarat Titans have a very good management and are very supportive. So, that’s the reason I wanted to play for Gujarat,” he added.

He made his List A debut for India A against South Africa A in the Quadrangular Series on 27 August 2018. On the opening day of the 2018–19 Vijay Hazare Trophy in September 2018, Mavi took a hat-trick for Uttar Pradesh against Saurashtra.

He made his first-class debut for Uttar Pradesh in the 2018–19 Ranji Trophy on 1 November 2018.

On his Ranji debut, Mavi took a 4 wicket haul against Goa in Kanpur, as Uttar Pradesh bowled Goa out for just 152. In his second first-class match against Odisha, he picked up his maiden five-wicket haul.

In December 2018, he was named in India’s team for the 2018 ACC Emerging Teams Asia Cup. In November 2019, he replaced the injured Arshdeep Singh in India’s squad for the 2019 ACC Emerging Teams Asia Cup.
