According to the most recent IPL 2022 retention rumours, CSK has kept its famous captain, MS Dhoni, for the next three years, as well as ace all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja. The club has also retained Ruturaj Gaikwad, the IPL 2021 Orange Cap winner, and is in negotiations with another all-rounder, Moeen Ali, for the fourth berth. If Ali’s contract isn’t signed, CSK intends to keep Sam Curran, Ali’s teammate. Franchises can keep up to four players, according to the BCCI’s retention rules, and the final list must be presented by November 30. With the big auction coming up next month, it’ll be interesting to watch which teams will commit to which four major players for future seasons. Dhoni’s three-year contract extension has ensured that he will be seen wearing the yellow jersey once again, since he has maintained that he has not yet departed. “As I’ve already stated, it is dependent on BCCI. With the addition of two additional teams. We must choose what is best for CSK. It doesn’t matter if I’m in the top three or four. It’s all about building a solid foundation so the franchise doesn’t suffer. We need to take a careful look at the core group to identify who can contribute over the next ten years.” After winning the IPL 2021 Trophy for the fourth time, MS Dhoni stated, “I haven’t left behind.”
PBKS and KL Rahul are parting ways:
According to rumours from The Indian Express, ace batsman KL Rahul would leave PBKS and will lead the new Lucknow franchise. As two new IPL teams, Lucknow and Ahmedabad, have been announced, there are rumours that their owners are in discussions with prominent players. And, according to sources, Rahul has agreed to the Lucknow arrangement. Rishabh Pant, Axar Patel, Prithvi Shaw, and top pacer Anrich Mortje are all poised to stay with another franchise, DC. According to sources, Shreyas Iyer wanted to be the franchise’s new leader, but the Capitals want to keep Pant.
