IPL 2023 Retained & Released Players List – RR, CSK, MI, GT, RCB, KKR, SRH, DC, LSG, PBKS: Debutant IPL franchise, Gujarat Titans (GT) lifted the coveted IPL glory, on May 29, in their maiden season which marked the end of the Tata Indian Premier League (IPL) season fifteen. The tournament that spanned over 2 months gave a new winner after six long years of domination from Mumbai Indians, and Chennai Super Kings.
Gujarat Titans (GT) hammered Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the marquee final to fetch their first IPL title in the very first season after getting the operational rights.
While the Tata IPL 2022 was big in several aspects, several unwanted dips were also encountered during the tournament. Despite the addition of the two new teams, the viewership saw a decline, however, it was soon revived to some extent during the second phase of the tournament.
The two newly added teams did exceedingly well throughout the tournament. While Gujarat ended their campaign winning the tournament, Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) made an exit in the eliminator.
Meanwhile, IPL biggies such as Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings hit their all-time low performances. Mumbai remained at the bottom of the points table, and Chennai ended their rusty campaign in the penultimate position in the points table.
Nevertheless, all the teams would look to make strategies for the next IPL season. The planning process for the IPL 2023 will begin shortly for all the teams. The first step for that would be the retention and release of players ahead of the IPL 2023 auction.
