IPL 2022 Auction : Rishabh Pant is retained by the Delhi Capitals; Shreyas Iyer and Ravi Ashwin are released-Report

Rishabh Pant has been retained as the captain of the Delhi Capitals ahead of the IPL 2022 super auction. Axar Patel, Prithvi Shaw, and Anrich Nortje have also been retained. Shreyas Iyer, Shikhar Dhawan, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Kagiso Rabada have all been discharged as a result. According to ESPN Cricinfo, Iyer was never in contention since he wanted to lead the Capitals, but with Pant’s backing from the owners, it was difficult to execute. According to the website, Iyer has opted to enter the big auction, where he will be considered by five of the eight new franchises searching for a captain.

In IPL 2018, Iyer took up the leadership of Delhi from Gautam Gambhir in the middle of the season. The next year, he was named captain of the Delhi Capitals, a brand new franchise that made it to the final four for the first time in seven years.

The following year, he guided the team to the final before losing to the Mumbai Indians. After dislocating his shoulder in a limited-overs match against England, he was forced to withdraw from the IPL 2021. Pant was the primary pick, according to the website, while Iyer was the second choice. However, as negotiations broke down, Prithvi Shaw was pushed to the back of the line. Shaw, who made waves during India’s 2018 Under-19 World Cup win, was purchased for INR 1.2 crore during an auction the same year.

The Chennai Suprerkins will keep MS Dhoni as captain, according to Cricbuzz. Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah will be retained. Kieron Pollard of the West Indies is currently negotiating. They may also keep Ishan Kishan, who has the potential to be a terrific long-term investment. According to the report, they aim to free Surya Kumar Yadav and then purchase him back from the auction pool. KL Rahul will almost certainly captain Sanjiv Goenka’s spanking new Lucknow franchise. “India’s KL Rahul is expected to captain Goenka’s new Lucknow team.” According to reports, Rahul has left Punjab Kings and accepted Goenka’s offer. The new team has reportedly approached Yadav, but the batsman is yet to answer,” the storey continued.
