While the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 season finished over a month ago, arrangements for the 2022 season are already started. By the 30th of November, 2021, all eight existing franchises had submitted a list of retained players.

Today’s GamePlan Today Talks will talk about the retention review of IPL 2022 auctions. So yeah, already we had a quick summary of player retention strategies prior. This article will have a precise, in-depth analysis and retention review for IPL 2022 auctions. So let us all jump into the review segment.

The IPL Retention 2022 has finally arrived. It is loaded with twists and turns as the tournament’s largest franchise T20 league, starting its initial expansion stage.

The IPL 2022 is expected to be a mega-event, with ten teams competing in the next season of the cash-rich tournament.  For the same reason, two new teams,  Ahmedabad and Lucknow, have been introduced to the IPL, and the current eight teams have announced their retention list ahead of the IPL 2022 big auction.

The BCCI directed the existing eight teams to report their list of retained performers by the 30th of January 2022. It must be following the IPL Governing Council and BCCI norms. The regulations stated that each of the eight teams might keep a maximum of four players. Out of the four players, the eight teams will be permitted to stay a maximum of two foreigners and three Indians. RTM cards will not be allowed for the eight franchises.

Once the existing eight team’s retention lists are announced, the two new teams, Ahemadabad and Lucknow, will choose to keep three players each from the freed players by the existing eight teams.  The three players will be a mix of two foreigners and two Indians. The Sanjeev Goenka group will hold the Lucknow-based franchise, while CVC Capital will own the Ahmedabad-based franchise.

However, the Ahmedabad franchise appears to be in serious trouble even before the season begins. Their owners and CVC Capital are being accused of engaging in fantasy sports. The IPL Governing Council had met on the 3rd of December to decide on franchise ownership.
