The 21-year-old Minz became the first-ever tribal cricketer to have been signed by an IPL team when during the IPL 2023 auction in December, both Mumbai Indians and Gujarat Titans entered into a bidding war to acquire him. The battle which started at the base price of Rs. 20 lakhs ended with the final verdict in Titans' favor who purchased him for Rs. 3.6 crore.

The season 17 of the Indian Premier League will begin on 22 March with the defending champions Chennai Super Kings all set to take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in the opening clash at the MA Chidambaram Chepauk Stadium. Only the schedule for the first two weeks has been released by BCCI so far, with the remaining fixtures to be revealed once the schedule for general elections 2024 is out.
