ANI Photo | IPL 2023: Look how squads stand as teams gear up for mini-auction in December

All the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises issued the list of players retained/released by them ahead of the mini-auction for the 2023 season of the league in December this year.
While many teams chose to stick to their core, there are still some big names who were shown the door either because of their form or the team investing more in their future players. Five-time champions Mumbai Indians (MI) released star all-rounder from West Indies, Kieron Pollard after a disappointing 2022 season, but the player will groom the side’s future as a batting coach.
Chennai Super Kings also released 39-year-old former West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo, with an eye towards building stars for the future. Indian players like Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni, Ruturaj Gaikwad and England all-rounder Moeen Ali were among some of the players retained.
A poor run of form forced Punjab Kings and Gujarat Titans to part ways with Mayank Agarwal and England opener Jason Roy respectively. Sunrisers Hyderabad chose to let go of West Indies wicketkeeper-batter Nicholas Pooran and New Zealand skipper Kane Willamson, with the latter under scrutiny for his low strike rate in the shortest format for a while. Though both teams still boast of heavy star power despite such releases.
Royal Challengers chose to retain most of their core squad including captain Faf Du Plessis from South Africa, Virat Kohli, Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell, Indian pacer Mohammad Siraj and Sri Lankan spin sensation Wanindu Hasaranga. Last year’s runners-up Rajasthan Royals released NZ all-rounder Daryl Mitchell, James Neesham and South African batter Rassie van der Dussen.
Delhi Capitals also kept most of its core team, featuring Aussie opener David Warner, Indian wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant, opener Prithvi Shaw, Aussie all-rounder Mitchell Marsh and South African pacer Anrich Nortje.
Lucknow Super Giants also let go of experienced players like West Indies all-rounder Jason Holder, Indian batter Manish Pandey and hard-hitting Windies batter Evin Lewis, while Australian batter Aaron Finch and bowler Pat Cummins, Indian batter Ajinkya Rahane were among players released by KKR.
