According to the rules of the IPL squad selection, teams were allowed to retain any number of players going into this year’s auction. Given the auction isn’t going to be a major one, teams were even allowed to retain all of their contracted players if they wanted and release only those superfluous to their requirements.
The Chennai Super Kings have released just three players, having retained nearly the entire squad. The reason for this is very simple, they won the title last year and believe they will do well with the team they had last season under MS Dhoni.
Three-time champions Mumbai Indians did not make it to the playoffs last year but that doesn’t mean they have released the core of their squad. The Rohit Sharma-led squad will have most of their players still featuring for them but those let go include Pat Cummins, Mustafizur Rahman and Akila Dananjaya, as they look to bring in players who will play in the tournament without having to worry about the impending World Cup.
Rajasthan Royals also made the playoffs but have let go of enough players to be left with nine slots still to be filled during the auction this season while runner-up last year and winner in the 2016 IPL, Sunrisers Hyderabad will need to bring in just five more players. Their remaining budget is a mere INR 9.7 crore.
The biggest releaser of players is Kings XI Punjab and it comes as no surprise. After all, Punjab’s struggles in the IPL are well known and their lack of results, combined with the bringing in of Mike Hesson as coach, has combined to give them the liberty of starting from scratch.
Punjab are left with a budget of INR 36.2 crore and have up to 15 players to be bought into the squad. The situation isn’t as dire in Royal Challengers Bangalore but they will still need to make up to 10 selections and have a budget of INR 18.5 crore to go with it. Virat Kohli has let go of Brendon McCullum and Quinton de Kock in this quest along with Corey Anderson who had come in late as a replacement cricketer.
Kolkata Knight Riders look like they have a fine blend of experience and youth but they still can select up to 12 more players. Of course if one were to look at what they had done last season, they might not need those many – they had opted to go with a lean team instead, with a selection of six or seven more players.
Lastly, the other team not performing too well is Delhi Daredevils, who also have 10 slots to fill after a huge release of players during the trading window. With a salary cap of INR 25.5 crore and the fact they have a nice, youthful squad, the Daredevils only need to get a few of their selections right to push themselves into the playoffs.
We had a fantastic edition of the 2018 IPL, and the great news for fans is that the 2019 edition is not too far away. Last season of the Indian Premier League was undoubtedly its most exciting edition since the tournament’s conception. Not only a lot of cricket records were broken, but also the fans were kept heavily entertained throughout the season. We had a fantastic tournament last season, which was eventually won by the Chennai Super Kings and we expect the same again. IPL team list 2019 is placed above.
