After the T20 World Cup talks of IPL have been started all over the world and we will have an epic new season next year but the preparation for that upcoming season has been started from now onwards.
The mini-auction date has been finalized and it will be held on 23 December in Kochi few big players will be under the hammer this time as some franchise has made some harsh decision this time.
All the Franchise submitted their retained player list to BCCI on 15 November and some teams have made bold moves which include Mumbai Indians who released Kieron Pollard while Hyderabad released Williamson and Punjab released Mayank Agarwal.
All eyes were on Chennai Super Kings before the retention list:
All eyes were on Chennai Super Kings as there were rumors that they will part ways with Ravindra Jadeja but they had retained him ahead of the season and shut the mouth of everyone.
Who will be the next captain of the Chennai Super Kings:
As many reports suggest that this will be MS Dhoni’s last season of IPL as he is currently 41 years and will take retirement after this season but CSK needs to groom another captain after Dhoni.
Team Management can make Ruturaj Gaikwad their next captain as he is young and can be a great captain as he is leading Maharashtra team in the Vijay Hazare trophy.
