Player Retentions

The retention process allows IPL teams to keep a certain number of players from their previous squads. Sunrisers Hyderabad is likely to retain Abdul Samad despite not getting enough matches in the 2022 season. The team had retained the Jammu and Kashmir hitter for the last season but gave him only two games. Reports suggest that Samad was much sought after in the trading window, with Lucknow Super Giants and Rajasthan Royals both interested in getting his services. However, he stays on with his former franchise.

Final Thoughts

The IPL 2023 trading window has been a rollercoaster ride, with many players changing franchises and several rumors making rounds. While some teams have made significant acquisitions to bolster their squad, others have released players who have decided to focus on other cricketing commitments. As we approach the tournament, it’ll be interesting to see how these changes impact each team’s performance and whether they can achieve their goals.
