IPL 2023 Retention: Full list of players released and retained by all franchises ahead of mini-auction

Across all organizations, 87 players were released as teams entered the auction with a fantastic chance to rebuild their rosters and a respectable amount of cash.

There are still six months to go before the 2023 Indian Premier League, but preparations for the mini-auction in Kochi on December 23 are already underway. All ten franchises are in the process of updating their squads next month, including Mumbai Indians, which released a whopping 12 cricketers.

Kane Williamson of Sunrisers Hyderabad, Mayank Agarwal of Punjab Kings and Dwayne Bravo of Chennai Super Kings were the biggest takeaways from the IPL Retention on Wednesday. Kieron Pollard announced his retirement from the Indian Premier League once he was not retained by MI.
