VIVO IPL 2018: Top 5 names who failed to get retained

VIVO IPL 2018: Top 5 names who failed to get retained

CRICKET BUZZLATEST CRICKET NEWS - VIVO IPL 2018 

Indian Premier League (IPL) player retention has been done and dusted, as all the 8 Franchises have already named the players they have retained for the upcoming season. There have been few obvious calls, but certainly few surprising retentions too. 


  The bar has been raised to 80 Crore for the salary cap, which was previously 76 Crore. BCCI decided to increase the limit to 14 Crore more, as the franchises were keen to retain their big players that would certainly help the club’s fan base stagnant. 


Big names likes MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli have been retained by the franchises, but there has been few shocking exclusion too. Here is the list of 5 big names, which haven’t been retained by the club.


1. Gautam Gambhir

The Two-time winning captain and one of the best leaders in IPL Gautam Gambhir wasn’t retained by Kolkata knight Riders. Gambhir is certainly among the leading run scorer in IPL history and lead KKR to two IPL titles back in 2012 and 2014. He is certainly the one of the best performer in the IPL history, but despite all such incomparable records Gambhir hasn’t been retained.


  
2. Ravichandran Ashwin

The classy off-spinner will be under the hammer too, as Chennai Super Kings haven’t retained Ravichandran Ashwin for the upcoming Indian Premier League 2018. All though Ashwin is more of a longer format bowler now, but still he is a match winner. All teams will go for a bidding war in the IPl Auction that’s for sure.

 

3. Dwayne Bravo

The Caribbean all-rounder Dwayne Bravo wasn’t retained by the Chennai Super Kings. Bravo will be a big miss for the side, as he has been the integral part of the CSK over the years. The West Indian has been one of the finest performers in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

 

4. Shikhar Dhawan

It was a shocker for the Sunrisers Hyderabad fans, when they came to know that the management haven’t backed Shikhar Dhawan by retaining him. But still SRH can use RTM card to bring Dhawan back in the squad, as Shikhar Dhawan and David Warner forms one of the best pair in IPl. 
    

5. Chris Lynn

Goodness Gracious, one of the best T20 player in the world right now, Chris Lynn hasn’t been retained by Kolkata Knight Rider. But don’t worry KKR fans, the Knight Rider’s management will get the services back of Chris Lynn if they use their RTM card and which which is most likely to happen.
