IPL auction has almost arrived, IPL teams almost prepared their best possible auction plan and everything related to auction getting finalized, as you know teams already retained their core players but they missed some of them because of rules, budget calculation, and other internal factors.
Here we will discuss that one player of each franchise which they should have retained but they let him go in the auction.
Hardik Pandya (Mumbai Indians)
There were some more names for MI to retain but Hardik was the most important player they left for the auction, there are plenty of top-order batsmen available in the auction but there is hardly someone like Hardik in auction obviously Hardik as an allrounder.The new franchise Gujrat Titans signed for 15cr from the drafts and made him captain this itself shows how important player he is.
Chetan Sakariya(Rajasthan Royals)
The amazing young Speedster with a lot of potential and he shows in IPL itself, he took 14 Wickets for RR in last season he played for them and because of that performance he got his maiden Indian team call-upHe was the man for RR if they had retained him, left-arm pacers are rare in IPL and he is just 23 years old but they let him go for the auction.
Avesh Khan(Delhi Capitals)
Highest Wicket-taker for Delhi Capitals in IPL 2021, nailed perfect Yorkers, swung the ball in Powerplay what more do you need from a Bowler?He was an outstanding option for Delhi Capitals, they didn’t retain him because of their team combination.
Subhman Gill(Kolkata Knight Riders)
The youngster who has so much class getting compared with legends of the field and as per brand value perspective he has highest brand value among youngsters in IPL still KKR left him they retained Venkatesh Iyer over him.Yeah Strike rate was a little bit issue but when Gill gets his prime, the perfection then you will miss him a lot, you will never get him in auction no team will let him go..how good or bad KKR’s decision is only time will tell.
Rashid Khan(Sunrisers Hyderabad)
This is an interesting case but why did Rashid ask management to pay him according to he didn’t go with the management decision? The answer is their management itself if Rashid was played for MI or CSK then he never have gone for only money but he knew SRH doesn’t respect their legends, the way they disrespected David Warner make Rashid to go for money, no loyalty nothing and that’s very bad take from SRH management they should have agreed him at any cost and let other things to get discussed later.SRH surely gonna miss their core players and Rashid was one of them.
Yuzvendra Chahal (Royal Challengers Bangalore)
The Golden Arm of RCB,The one-man army of RCB in the bowling department over the years still RCB let him go for the auction.Didn’t reveal the reason but it seems they left him because of their budget calculations which they shouldn’t have cared about as Yuzi is India’s one of the best leggie available in the auction.
Shahrukh Khan (Punjab Kings)
The only Indian finisher who getting hype for the auction right now, this itself shows how important he was but again PBKS management didn’t take bold decisions firstly their captain KL Rahul left their team then they left youngsters like SRK who was so promising for them.Shahrukh going to become one of the costliest uncapped players in the history of the IPL auction, this surely going to hurt PBKS if they will not manage to get him back from the auction.
Deepak Chahar (Chennai Super Kings)
CSK’s best Indian pacer with a powerplay perspective, he is upcoming Bhuvneshwar Kumar and everyone knows how good Bhuvi was in his prime and under MSD Deepak surely will be improved more in future but some calculation and rules made CSK to leave him from the auction.Shardul Thakur was also an option but Deepak won matches single-handedly for CSK.Many other players were there, teams like MI have many good options to retain but rules made them to leave their players and the same goes for many other teams as the auction is in some days let’s see how many of those franchises will get back their core players from the auction.
