The IPL 2022 retentions made by the already existing eight franchises will be announced on 30th November.
The next edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2022) only gets bigger and better, with two new franchises confirmed by the BCCI, who will be based out of Lucknow and Ahmedabad. Private Equity firm “CVC Capital Partners” managed to win the bid for the Ahmedabad franchise for a whopping INR 5,625 crore, whilst former team owners of the IPL, the RPSG Sanjeev Goenka Group, paid a mind-boggling INR 7,090 for the Lucknow franchise.
This major addition to the tournament is set to induce a mega auction, which will see over 80% of the cricketers back under the hammer to find buyers. Ahead of the mega auction, the first major concern for all the new teams will be to decide on the list of players who should be retained.
The existing 8 franchises will have to confirm their list of retentions on 30th November. Plenty of facets will be factored in by the teams before they decide upon their final list, and it seems like there will be a lot of surprise calls. What they do ensure, however, is that the IPL 2022 will be more cracking than ever before and in the coming seasons, the number of games is likely to go up with every passing year.
