Before the next edition of the Indian Premier League, all the eight franchise teams have announced the names of their retained players. Some teams retained their big players with the team while some even released their star players for mega auctions. Names like Ishan Kishan, Rashid Khan, Shreyas Iyer and Harshal Patel are included.
On Tuesday, November 30, the IPL franchise teams were to release the list of their retained players. After discussing all the names for the last several days, all the teams announced the names of their retained players. The Delhi Capitals team was the first to announce the names of its four retained players.
Many of the stars whose names were not included in the list of retained players were shocking. The team decided to release Sunrisers Hyderabad’s champion bowler Rashid Khan. At the same time, Mumbai Indians let a top form batsman like Ishan Kishan go. Hardik Pandya was struggling with poor form, so Mumbai did not discuss much about his name. Royal Challengers Bangalore did not retain Harshal Patel, the highest wicket-taker of the season.
