IPL 2022: Purse of all eight franchises after retention; Delhi Capitals have the smallest purse
The list of retained players was released on Tuesday by all eight franchises ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL) auctions for the 2022 season. Some of the choices were clear, but some conspicuous omissions stunned many fans.
Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Delhi Capitals (DC), Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), and Mumbai Indians (MI) retained four players each. Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), selected three players each. Only two players have been retained by the Punjab Kings (PBKS).
