No surprises there with the retentions from MI. It was SKY vs Ishan but MI have gone with Suryakumar Yadav. That too as a third option. There were reports that MI might not retain Hardik Pandya, it would have been a tough decision but who knows, they might go for him in the auction, along with Ishan Kishan.

A reminder of the retention rules!

21:25 (IST)

Irfan Pathan's pick for Rajasthan Royals:

1) Sanju Samson

2) Jos Buttler

3) Jofra Archer

4) Yashasvi Jaiswal

“Sanju Samson for sure, second number will be Jos Buttler because he's been in fantastic form, one of the best hitters going around especially if you are talking about white ball cricket, so you don't want to miss out on that wicket-keeper batsman, who can bat up the order and down the order as well," Pathan said. "The other guy, people might be tempted for Ben Stokes because he's a wonderful all-rounder, but I think I would put Jofra Archer in the same category as Jasprith Bumrah because you don't find many bowlers like that. So, I definitely would like Rajasthan Royals to retain Jofra Archer, and the fourth one, I am very tempted for Yashasvi Jaiswal because he's a young guy, who’s shown a lot of potential, and he could be the guy you could invest in.”

21:12 (IST)

Irfan Pathan's picks for Royal Challengers Bangalore:

1) Virat Kohli

2) Glenn Maxwell

3) Yuzvendra Chahal 

4) Mohammed Siraj 

“Obviously, when it comes to the auction, they’ll be looking for a leader, that's one thing for sure. The guys who I think they will look for retention, Virat Kohli number 1 for sure, Maxwell number 2. I think the two other guys who I would like to see get retained, because it's slightly tricky, one because you have guys like Devdutt Paddikal, Chahal, Mohammed Siraj as well as Harshal Patel, who’s been a Purple Patel for them, so he's been a consistent performer. So, out of those four, I would go for Chahal as well as Siraj because they offer different bowling skills. He can give you the new ball and he can give you those yorkers as well at the same time. Yes, Harshal Patel will be a big talking point as well, but if RCB thinks he's got the skill to do really well at the Chinnaswamy Stadium regularly, then in place of Siraj, they might go for Harshal Patel,” Irfan Pathan said.

20:52 (IST)

Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan has made his picks on retention for MI, RCB and RR on Star Sports show Game Plan - IPL Retention Special 

Here are his pics for Mumbai Indians

1) Rohit Sharma

2) Jasprit Bumrah

3) Kieron Pillard

4) Ishan Kishan

"I’m very clear on that, Ishan Kishan. He’s 23-years-old and has shown glimpses of what he can do and achieve," Pathan said. "He’s a solid hitter when it comes to having a left-hand batsman at the top of the order and you can definitely invest in him because he will have at least 10 years of good level of cricket, so Ishan Kishan," Pathan said.

20:31 (IST)

And for Jonny Bairstow as well...

This is what he replied to the post:  "Thank you all for your support! Hopefully at some point our paths cross again in the future!”

20:09 (IST)

Well, looks like it's time up for Warner in the SRH jersey (for now):

In reply to a SRH thank you post to the players on Instagram, David Warner has replied: "Thanks to all of you for your support over the years, up and downs, my family and I can’t stress enough how much we appreciated the love and passion you showed towards us and the team. Candice and I truely wish all the fans the very best for the future and hope whoever you wish to support the best. Love the Warner’s."

Hello and welcome to the live coverage of IPL Retentions. It's a big day as the teams will announce the names of the players they are going to retain ahead of the IPL 2022 mega auction.

IPL Retention 2022 News Live Updates: Here is the list of players Rajasthan Royals have retained: 1) Sanju Samson - 14 crore

2) Jos Buttler - 10 crore

3) Yashasvi Jaiswal (uncapped) - 4 crore

Preview: The build-up to the Indian Premier League (IPL) is well and truly underway, and the addition of two new teams have added a bit more excitement among fans heading to the 2022 season. There’s the IPL Mega auction slated to be held soon, but before that the eight existing teams face a deadline of 30 November, by which they have to submit their player retentions.

For the two new teams, they have a timeframe between 1 December to 25 December to pick three players before the mega auction.

The likes of MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli look set to continue with their respective franchises in CSK and RCB, but stars like Shreyas Iyer could go under the hammer at the auction.

The BCCI have allotted Rs 90 crore as salary cap to all 10 teams. Rs 42 crore will be deducted in case of four retentions, Rs 33 crore in case of three, Rs 24 in case of two and Rs 14 crore in case of one retention.

Delhi Capitals’ skipper Rishabh Pant looks set to be retained. Meanwhile, Rituraj Gaikwad, who had a brilliant show with the bat with CSK this season, also looks set to continue with the side for the upcoming season. Along with him, Ravindra Jadeja could follow suit, while England’s Moeen Ali is another contender to be retained. In case Moeen isn’t willing to stay with CSK, they could look at Sam Curran as the fourth option.

A report in NDTV news website suggests that Rajasthan Royals have retained skipper Sanju Samson despite finishing seventh last season.

A report in ESPNcricinfo says England’s trio of Jos Buttler, Jofra Archer and Liam Livingstone along with Yashasvi Jaiswal are contenders for RR’s remaining three retentions.

Another talking point has been that of Punjab Kings’ KL Rahul, with an NDTV report suggesting he could part ways with the franchise and look elsewhere.

While the dates for the Mega Auctions and next year’s tournament have not yet been officially released, the retention event is to take place on 30 November, starting at 5 pm IST.
