IPL 2022 Retention Heartbreaks – Hardik Pandya (Mumbai Indians)
Mumbai Indians allrounder Hardik Pandya is one of India’s best all-rounders in modern cricket. Unfortunately, he has failed to live up to his potential for the last two seasons. His IPL 2021 record was forgetful for both MI and India. He didn’t bowl for Mumbai Indians for two successive seasons, leading to ignorance at IPL 2022 Retentions. Hardik managed just 127 runs at a poor average of 14.11 in IPL 2021. The 28-year-old was purchased by MI at Rs 11 crore which didn’t suit him for IPL 2022. As a result, Mumbai Indians couldn’t retain him for IPL 2022.
IPL 2022 Retention Heartbreaks – KL Rahul (Punjab Kings)
Punjab Kings and KL Rahul parted ways for IPL 2022. He failed to deliver as a skipper but KL Rahul shined as an opener. Now, Punjab Kings will look for a new captain to end their IPL trophy drought. However, Rahul smashed 550+ runs for four consecutive seasons. His price tag of Rs 11 crore completely suited him. The 29-year-old is expected to lead a bidding war at the IPL 2022 Auctions. Meanwhile, IPL 2022 new teams- Lucknow, Ahmedabad will be vying him for a leadership role.
IPL 2022 Retention Heartbreaks – Faf du Plessis (Chennai Super Kings)
CSK opening batsman Faf du Plessis has been phenomenal for CSK for the last few seasons. In the last three seasons, he amassed 396, 449 and 600+ runs respectively. He scored 633 runs in IPL 2021 to guide Chennai Super Kings to the 4th IPL trophy. He also became the second-highest run-getter, only two runs behind Orange Cap winner Ruturaj Gaikwad. He was bought by CSK for just Rs 1.6 crore in IPL 2018.
IPL 2022 Retention Heartbreaks – Shreyas Iyer (Delhi Capitals)
Shreyas Iyer, who guided Delhi Capitals in IPL 2020 Final, did not make part of the IPL 2022 Retention. With Rishabh Pant as captain choice, Iyer wants to lead an IPL franchise. He feels that captaincy brings him the best out of him. He has been rock solid for DC and India since his return after his finger injury. He will be a big name in IPL 2022 Auctions and could be targeted as a captain. DC paid Shreyas Iyer Rs 7 crore which is likely to skyrocket in mega auctions.
IPL 2022 Retention Heartbreaks – Rashid Khan (Sunrisers Hyderabad)
Rashid Khan, who received a whopping Rs 9 crore at SRH for the last 3 4 seasons, has parted ways with Orange Army. The Afghanistan superstar doesn’t need an introduction. He is the most economical bowler to have played 50 or more matches in IPL 2021. He has taken a record of 93 wickets in 76 matches at an economy rate of 6.33 rpo. He could easily fetch a price of around Rs 15 crore in IPL 2022 Auctions.
IPL 2022 Retention Heartbreaks – Yuzvendra Chahal (Royal Challengers Bangalore)
Yuzvendra Chahal, who has been a vital cog of IPL 2022, missed out on IPL 2022 Retention. He had taken joint-most wickets by a spinner in IPL 2018 along with Rashid Khan. Chahal has experience of playing in 114 IPL matches with 139 wickets with an economy rate of 7.59. At a small ground of Chinnaswamy stadium, he has been fascinating. The leg spinner has been made Rs 6 crore by RCB for the last 4 IPL seasons. His price is likely to rise at the mega auctions.
RCB retained players: Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, Mohammad Siraj
Shubman Gill (Kolkata Knight Riders)
KKR opener Shubman Gill has failed to find a place in IPL 2022 Retentions. His excellent performance for KKR helped the franchise reach IPL 2022. He scored 478 runs in 17 games. He had also amassed 296 and 440 runs in previous two seasons. KKR has enjoyed his services for Rs 1.8 crores which could see a staggering jump at mega auctions.
Jofra Archer (Rajasthan Royals)
Pace spearhead Jofra Archer who failed to play in IPL 2021 has been released from the franchise. He was the lead of the pace attack in the Rajasthan Royals camp. He has played 35 matches and scalped 46 wickets for the franchise at a brilliant economy rate of 7.13. RR had bought him for Rs 7.2 crore in IPL 2018.
