Player retention
  • Max 3 capped Indian players
  • Max 2 uncapped Indian players
  • Max 2 overseas players
Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals will return to the Indian Premier League 2018, and will definitely need the players to build their squads. CSK will look to retain players and getting back ‘Captain Cool’ MS Dhoni back on their side.
The Chennai Super Kings want to retain players that they have had before, with MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina being two players they certainly want to keep hold of. Those two have a great connection with the area, and that would be huge for the fans to see them two playing for the Super Kings. Jadeja could be the third player who could be retained by the teem.
Players that CSK can retain or get back in the auction through a right to match option):
  • MS Dhoni
  • R Ashwin
  • Faf du Plessis
  • Baba Aparajith
  • Ankush Bains
  • Suresh Raina
  • Ravindra Jadeja
  • Dwayne Bravo
  • Brendon McCullum
  • Dwayne Smith
  • Andrew Tye
  • Irfan Pathan
  • Ishwar Pandey
The Rajasthan Royals have said they do not want to retain any players, and will head into the 2018 IPL season with a clean slate and every player new to the team. That is a big decision to make, especially for a team who will more than likely have one of the smallest budgets in the league, so it will be interesting to see how they do in 2018.
Players that RR can retain or get back in the auction through a right to match option):
  • Ajinkya Rahane
  • Steven Smith
  • Ankit Sharma
  • Rajat Bhatia
  • James Faulkner
  • Dhawal Kulkarni
Other sides will be asked to retain the same number of fixed players as CSK and RR, while the others will be released into the pot for the main auction. This is where the teams will build their roster, while adding new names to their existing ones to find that perfect combination.
Amidst all this speculation, one ought to wonder what players the franchises will retain for the 2018 Indian Premier League. Considering the fact that the teams have built their fan base and franchise around certain key players, it is unlikely that they will let them go. Here is our guess as to which team might retain what player.
Mumbai Indians – They won the title for the third time this season, and have become one of the most successful teams in the history of the IPL. They are sure to retain their captain, Rohit Sharma, who took the lads in Blue to their third league trophy. In addition to him, we can also see Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard and Lasith Malinga being retained by the Mumbai Indian’s management for yet another season.
Sunrisers Hyderabad – Without a doubt, the players they will be looking to retain are David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan. The duo have been highly consistent over the last two seasons and have taken their side to new heights. Losing them from the opening order will be a bitter pill to swallow for the Hyderabad management, and they will do everything possible to retain either one of them, if not both. Yuvraj Singh has also been a valuable player for the team, and it is likely that we might see him in the orange jersey once again.
David Warner especially has been in tremendous form over the past two seasons for the Sunrisers Hyderabad, leading them to the title in 2016. He is sure to be on the retained list and after finishing a good third last season, him and Bhuvneshwar Kumar could lead the Sunrisers to another title in 2018.
Update as on December 27: Sunrisers Hyderabad is going to retain David Warner, Shikhar Dhawan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar ahead of the IPL auction on January 27 and 28.
Kolkata Knight Riders – Gautam Gambhir has been their key player who has taken his side through trickiest of the situations, time and again. He has been with the side since 2011 and in many ways, is the KKR veteran. By his side, we can see the prolific all-rounder Yusuf Pathan, who has taken his side to many impressive victories from what appeared to be the brink of defeat. In bowling, Sunil Narine has done well and it’s hard to imagine the Knight Riders letting him go.
Kings XI Punjab – They are the one team in need of a massive overhaul. After performing disastrously, consistently, over the last three seasons, they need a side which can perform well. A couple of players which they are likely to retain are Hashim Amla and Glenn Maxwell, their two best performers from the 2017 season. They need a good batting order, and these two players have a lot to contribute for it.
Delhi Daredevils – The Daredevils have built a good squad over the years, with mid-twenties being the average age of players. They have invested in young talent and while they are yet to see any concrete results, there are many names which have performed superbly. Sanju Samson is one such player, who had a great season last year with Delhi, and is likely to play for the same team in 2018 too. Rishabh Pant too, played well for his side in 2017 and Delhi may very well retain him for the next season as well. In the overseas department, we may see either Kagiso Rabada or JP Duminy being retained. Zaheer Khan may be retained by the side as well.
Royal Challengers Bangalore – Last but not the least, we have the Bengaluru side. Virat Kohli is undoubtedly the player who will be retained under all circumstances. We know what a huge star he is and his team will not let him go, with Kholi in their team, they can beat anyone on their day and they will want to bounce back after finishing bottom last season. However, it is possible that we may see either AB de Villiers or Chris Gayle leave (The chances for the latter one are higher). Gayle hasn’t been able to perform consistently over the last two seasons and bringing in a replacement can do the trick in the opening order.
Full retained lists should be on their way soon and when we have them we will bring them to you. With the auction on the horizon, expect to see full details over the coming weeks, including retained lists, retained limits and any auction rules that need clarifying.
