Indian Premier League 2019 | List Of Players Retained And Released By IPL Franchises
Ahead of the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League auction, some franchises have confirmed the players that they released while some players are yet to officially release the list of players they do not wish to retain.
The decision making in chopping and changing prior to IPL 12 comes before the mega event in the IPL auction reported to be held in the third week of December.
The tentative dates for the auction has been reported as December 17 and 18. November 15 was the last date for IPL franchises to finalise their squad retentions for the 2019 edition of the cash-rich league.
Steve Smith and David Warner who are currently serving suspensions for their involvement in the ball-tampering scandal will return to the Indian Premier League after skipping IPL 2018. It is still unsettled whether they will hold any leadership responsibilities in IPL 12.
