With the auction for IPL 2020 set to take place in December, the teams were asked to submit the list of players retained by them.
There have been a few significant player moves through trades ahead of the auction next month. A few teams were looking for a complete revamp, while a few looked to just build on their core strength.
Two of the major trades involved Ajinkya Rahane moving to Delhi Capitals after nine years with Rajasthan Royals and Trent Boult joining Mumbai Indians.
After Friday’s deadline, after the teams had released their retained and released players list, a few expected as well as a few unexpected moves were seen from the teams.
Defending champions Mumbai Indians have released quite a few player, but their core set of players remain with them and they might not be involved too much in the upcoming auction. Same can be said of last season’s runner up Chennai Super Kings.
As for teams like Royal Challengers Bangalore, they will be looking for some recruitment in the auction after a dismal season.
