Perth Scorchers Docked For Breaching BBL Rules After Fielding Brayden Stepien

Perth Scorchers were found guilty of a breach of the Big Bash League (BBL) Player Contracting and Remuneration Rules at a Cricket Australia Code of Conduct Commission hearing.

The Perth Scorchers fielded Central Local Replacement Player Brayden Stepien during their Big Bash League match against the Adelaide Strikers at Adelaide Oval on Friday, January 14.

Perth Scorchers Quilty Of Breaching BBL Rules After Using Central Replacement Player Incorrectly

Perth Scorchers have been found guilty of breaching BBL contracting rules after using a central replacement player incorrectly during their loss to Adelaide Strikers on January 14, but will still finish top of the ladder as the BBL lock away their finals venues.

Perth Scorchers called in a replacement player Brayden Stepien from the newly-created central pool to keep wicket for 14 overs during the Strikers match after Laurie Evans, who was initially picked to keep the wicket, had suffered an injury. The Perth franchise was already missing Josh Inglis, who was with Australia’s Test squad, while Cameron Bancroft was missing due to Covid.

Brayden Stepien Kept Wicket For 14 Overs During The Adelaide Striker’s Innings Despite Not Being Part Of Perth Scorchers’ 18 Men Squad

Brayden Stepien kept wicket for 14 overs during the Adelaide Strikers’ batting innings despite not being part of the Perth franchise’s 18-player squad.

“At the hearing, Commissioner Alan Sullivan QC heard evidence from representatives of both Clubs and Cricket Australia. He determined that Stepien was an ineligible player for the match and as such, the decision to field Stepien was a breach of the Rules,” said an official statement.

The Commissioner determined the penalty for the Perth Scorchers would be the deduction of their Bash Boost point earned on the night. He noted the unique and challenging circumstances of the current Big Bash League season and the low impact of this breach.

For clarity, the Bash Boost point from that match will not be awarded to the Adelaide Strikers. Brayden Stepien was on standby for the game as a replacement player, but clubs need to officially add the replacement player to their squad list prior to the game to allow him to play. But Brayden Stepien was called upon to field despite not being added to the Perth Scorchers list.

An undermanned Perth Scorchers outfit has been dealt a “rude shock”, producing their lowest total of BBL11 in just their third loss of the summer as the Adelaide Strikers kept their slim finals hopes alive. Pacer Matt Kelly returned a positive PCR test result for COVID-19 and didn’t travel with the squad. Batsman Cameron Bancroft also returned a positive PCR test result while in isolation, joining Colin Munro. Mitchell Marsh, Josh Inglis, and Ashton Agar were also unavailable for selection.

With six first-choice Scorchers unavailable, the Adelaide Strikers on Friday played with great discipline – with both bat and ball – to record an impressive six-wicket win in their first game without superstar spinner Rashid Khan in a rare mid-morning BBL game at the Adelaide Oval. It was Adelaide Strikers’ second consecutive win, helping it jump into the top five on the table amid the crucial closing stages of the BBL regular season.

Hardik Pandya, Rashid Khan And Shubman Gill Set To Be Part Of Ahmedabad Franchise In IPL 2022

Hardik Pandya, Rashid Khan, and Shubman Gill are set to be a part of the Ahmedabad franchise for the upcoming IPL 2022 season.
The Ahmedabad franchise, which was bought last October by CVC Capital Partners (Irelia Company Pte Ltd), has also finalized its coaching staff – they will be led by former India fast bowler Ashish Nehra, and former South Africa batter and head coach Gary Kirsten.
Former England batter Vikram Solanki, who is currently Surrey’s head coach, will be the team director. This is the second IPL franchise where the trio will work together: the previous instance was at Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Hardik Pandya And Rashid Khan All Set To Play Together For Ahmedabad Franchise

Ahmedabad and Lucknow, the two new franchises participating in the IPL 2022, are yet to disclose the players they have bought but the deadline for doing so is fast approaching- January 22.  Both teams were given the same purse – INR 90 crore – the same as the existing eight franchises.
However, unlike the other teams, which could retain four players, the two new ones can buy a maximum of three players with the overseas slot limited to one. It has been learned that Ahmedabad has decided to pay both Hardik Pandya and Rashid Khan the same amount – INR 15 crore.
It is also learned that Hardik Pandya is likely to take charge as Ahmedabad captain, a first experience for the allrounder in the IPL. The third player – Shubman Gill – will be paid INR 7 crore. This means the franchise will go into the auction in February with a purse of INR 53 crore.
Hardik Pandya’s rise, since he was bought as an uncapped player for a mere INR 10 lakh in 2015, has been exponential. By 2018, he had established himself as the best allrounder in India and Mumbai duly retained him as their second pick at the auction that year, paying INR 11 crore.
This is the first time Hardik Pandya and Rashid Khan will play for the same team in the IPL, having previously represented Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad respectively. Hardik Pandya is a four-time title-winner. However, Hardik Pandya struggled with fitness issues over the last two IPLs and did not bowl at all in this period. His batting, too, hasn’t been as effective as before.

That forced Mumbai to look in a different direction as they retained the in-form Suryakumar Yadav, who has proven he can bat and accelerate at any position. Hardik Pandya is currently focussing on regaining complete fitness and has not been part of any of the Indian white-ball squads since the 2021 T20I World Cup.
As for Rashid Khan, the Afghanistan legspinner became a big talking point immediately after Sunrisers Hyderabad decided to retain Kane Williamson, who will be full-time captain from IPL 2022, along with the uncapped Jammu & Kashmir pairing of Abdul Samad and Umran Malik.
In 2017, Sunrisers Hyderabad bought Rashid Khan for INR 4 crore and, a year later, they retained him for INR 9 crore. Remarkably, Rashid Khan featured in all 76 matches played by Sunrisers Hyderabad since his debut, picking up 93 wickets at an economy rate of 6.33. Only Jasprit Bumrah has taken more wickets (104) than Rashid Khan in the last five IPL seasons.
Sunrisers Hyderabad wanted to keep Rashid Khan, so they told him that he would be their second pick behind Kane Williamson. The talks got derailed thereafter, which freed Rashid Khan to weigh up his options, including going into the IPL 2022 mega auction.

Shubman Gill Also Set To Be A Part Of Ahmedabad Franchise In IPL 2022

For Shubman Gill, this will be his second team in the IPL having been picked by Kolkata Knight Riders in the 2018 auction for INR 1.8 crore. The 22-year old, who has already played 10 Tests and three ODIs, has been earmarked as one of the brightest young talents of this decade, and at one point was even looked upon as a future leader by the Kolkata Knight Riders.

However, the Kolkata Knight Riders had several other options when it came to the retention and Shubman Gill had to be left out. Shubman Gill was a member of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and he was let go by the franchise as the franchise retained Varun Chakravarthy, Venkatesh Iyer, Sunil Narine, and Andre Russell instead.
Ahmedabad’s third choice Ishan Kishan didn’t work out and they zeroed in on Shubman Gill, who could also be seen as a potential captaincy candidate.

Afghanistan Cricket Board May Allow Its National Players To Take Part In Only 3 Franchise Based T20 Global Leagues

Afghanistan Cricket Board may allow their national cricketers to take part in only three franchise-based T20 leagues in order to ensure their availability in domestic tournaments.

ACB recently formed a 14-member technical committee to observe and review the present cricketing structure currently in place. Following their assessment, they’ve come up with a new plan of action to raise its standards.

Afghanistan Cricket Board Will Reduce Players Participation And Allow Its Players To Take Part In 3 Franchise Based T20 Global Leagues

The technical committees had already discussed a couple of times on different aspects to take the game forward in the war-torn country considering they will have to report back to the top ACB management with specific plans on what needs to be done so that the board can govern the game better.

Afghanistan cricketers are a hot commodity in the world of franchise-based T20 cricket. They feature regularly in almost every big T20 tournament around the globe at the expense of skipping their domestic tournaments, considering their presence is extremely low in competitions played in their own backyard.

“Our (Technical committee) plan is to discuss with ACB high-ups regarding the participation of our leading national cricketers in the domestic tournament,” Raees Ahmadzai, part of the newly-formed technical committee said.

“Maybe the Afghanistan Cricket Board will reduce their (players’) participation in different franchise leagues and ask the players to take part in only three franchise-based T20 leagues in a year and they can choose their options as it is their choice,” he said.

“There are the recommendations from the selection committee – that in different Test nations, first-class cricket is a priority and we have to follow the same path as players will need to play first-class cricket to get selected in Test squad,” he said.

“You know T20 team selection is easy as most of our players are playing in different T20 leagues around the world. But when your top cricketers are not participating in domestic cricket, then the new generation will not become good cricketers. So let’s see but I am sure more than 90% of national players will take part in domestic cricket from next year,” he said.

ACB’s 14-member technical committee includes – Abdulwali Amin, Ahmad Shah Suliman Khil, Allah Dad Noori, Dawlat Khan Ahmadzai, Ihsan Obaid, Menhaj Raz, Mohammad Khan, Nazeem Jar, Mohammad Salam Afghan, Nawroz Mangal, Noor Malikzai, Raees Khan Ahmadzai, Shahid Alokozai, and Taj Malik Alam.

Afghanistan players participate in the leagues such as the Indian Premier League, Pakistan Super League, The Hundred, Bangladesh Premier League, Caribbean Premier League, Big Bash League in Australia. Their participation in these leagues means they miss the domestic tournaments.

Afghanistan Cricket Board’s Raees Khan Added The Committee Will Bring Overseas Curators To Develop Local Ground Staff

Raees Khan, who is very vocal regarding promoting fast bowlers, added that the committee will recommend bringing overseas curators to develop their local ground staff so that they can produce wickets to encourage fast bowlers.

”For the next season you know we want to prepare a good fast bowling wicket, good seaming wicket, bouncy wicket. And the cricket committee discussed… you know we need a good curator to help the other local curators to make a new good wicket for the fast bowlers,” he said.

Afghanistan will play 37 ODIs, 12 T20Is & 3 Tests in 2022-23, according to the Future Tour Program of ICC, apart from taking part in various ICC & ACC events in the next two years. Afghanistan will kickstart their season in 2022 in January by hosting the Netherlands for a three-match ODI series which is part of the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League in Qatar.

Following the series against the Netherlands, Afghans will tour Zimbabwe in January-February to play three ODIs while they are scheduled to host Australia & Pakistan for three ODIs. They will then travel to India, Bangladesh & Sri Lanka to play three series (away) at the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League till 2023. Afghanistan so far has played only one Super League series and they earned full 30 points by clean-sweeping the Irish earlier this year.

The likes of Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi, and Mujeeb Ur Rahman are familiar faces in almost every major T20 league including the Indian Premier League (IPL) and Big Bash League. The Taliban takeover of the country was followed by the resignation of Rashid Khan as the T20I captain and later the removal of CEO Hamid Shinwari. Adding to the raging fire, Cricket Australia decided to scrap their maiden Test against Australia later in the year.

Asghar Afghan has played six Tests, 114 ODIs, and 74 T20Is for Afghanistan. The right-handed batter made his debut against Scotland in 2009. Asghar Afghan played his first match in the longest format when Afghanistan locked horns with India in June 2018. He retired from international cricket during the 2021 T20I World Cup.

Pat Cummins Registers Record 5/38 In His First 1st Test As A Skipper To Bundle Out England For 147 At Gabba

Pat Cummins, the Australian fast bowler, and newly appointed skipper joined former India captain Anil Kumble and Courtney Walsh among other greats in the unique list of players to have achieved a record of picking a 5 wicket haul as Test skipper. Australia fast bowler Pat Cummins on Wednesday recorded a five-wicket haul on Day 1 of the first Ashes Test in Brisbane and joined a unique list of bowlers to have achieved the feat as captains.

Pat Cummins is playing his first Test as the captain of Australia since Tim Paine stepped down from the role in November after a scandal. Pat Cummins ended with figures of 5/38 in 13.1 overs as Australia made a dream start to the Ashes series, bowling England out on a below-par 147 in the first innings. Pat Cummins, who is leading Australia for the first time in Tests, sent back England all-rounder Ben Stokes to claim his first wicket as captain.

Pat Cummins Became First Bowler Since Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan To Take 5 Wickets In Debut Test As Skipper

The paceman dismissed England’s danger man Ben Stokes (5) cheaply in the morning, then grabbed another four victims after lunch. Pat Cummins led his team off the ground holding the Kookaburra ball aloft, enjoying a huge ovation from the Gabba crowd after his first five-wicket haul against England.

Pat Cummins became the first bowler since Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan in 2019 to take a five-wicket haul in his debut Test as captain. Rashid Khan had achieved the feat against Bangladesh in Chattogram, where he took five-wicket hauls across both innings of the Test.

Overall, Pat Cummins joins a list of elite bowler-captains to have taken a five-wicket haul that includes India’s Anil Kumble, West Indies’ Courtney Walsh, New Zealand’s Daniel Vettori among others. Earlier this year, Joe Root – the English captain – also achieved a five-wicket haul during a Test against India.

Earlier, England won the toss against Australia but the hosts made an electrifying start, thanks to Mitchell Starc’s dismissal of Rory Burns in the first delivery of the innings. England could never recover from the initial setback and was eventually bowled out in the second session.

England Omits Pacer Stuart Broad In A Major Surprise

Mitchell Starc bowled England opener Rory Burns with the first ball of the series and wickets followed regularly thereafter, despite a brief fightback from Jos Buttler (39) and Ollie Pope (35).

Pat Cummins himself registered a fifer in this innings (5-38). Mitchell Starc (2/35) and Josh Hazlewood(2/42) and Cameron Green (1/6) were the other wicket-takers. Apart from Haseeb Hameed (25), Ollie Pope (35), Jos Buttler(39), and Chris Woakes (21) none of the other batsmen registered double-digit figures.

England captain Joe Root won the toss and elected to bat first in the opening Ashes Test against Australia at the Gabba on Wednesday as the tourists omitted paceman Stuart Broad in a major surprise. James Anderson was also rested as a precautionary measure.

The tourists left Stuart Broad out in favour of spinner Jack Leach with Mark Wood, Ollie Robinson, and Chris Woakes to lead the pace attack, which was confirmed by skipper Joe Root at the toss. No further play was possible on Day 1 as rain played spoilsport after England’s innings ended.

Playing XIs:

Australia: David Warner, Marcus Harris, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith, Travis Head, Cameron Green, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins (captain), Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc.

England: Rory Burns, Haseeb Hameed, Dawid Malan, Joe Root (captain), Ollie Pope, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Chris Woakes, Ollie Robinson, Jack Leach, Mark Wood.

David Warner Expecting To Be A Part Of The IPL 2022 Mega Auction

David Warner is the top run-scorer in the IPL history so far among the foreign players. The left-hander has notched 5449 runs from 150 matches at an average of 41.59 and a strike rate of 139.96. However, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, and Suresh Raina are leading the charts in the list of all-time leading run-scorers in the IPL.

In fact, the Australia opener has gotten the most half-centuries in the IPL, as many as 50. After playing a few seasons for the Delhi Daredevils, now Delhi Capitals, he went on to ply his trade for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. David Warner tasted a chunk of his IPL success for the Orange Army and won the Orange Cap quite a few times. In 2016, he also captained them to their maiden IPL title, beating Virat Kohli’s RCB.

David Warner Had A Poor IPL 2021 For Which He Was Stripped Of Captaincy And Lost His Place In The Sunrisers Hyderabad Team

Former Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) captain David Warner was released by the franchise despite his stellar campaign in the T20I World Cup 2021, where he bagged the Player of the Tournament award for 289 runs in seven matches for Australia. IPL 2021 has been the Australian’s worst season ever with just 195 runs in 8 games, with two fifties, averaging 24.38, and striking at 107.73.

However, 2021 turned out to be a season equivalent to a nightmare for him. Neither could he shine as a skipper, nor could he weave magic with the bat in hand. In the first leg of the IPL in India, David Warner lost captaincy after which Kane Williamson was appointed as their skipper.

Thereafter, David Warner also lost his place from the eleven after which Jason Roy was included. Jason Roy played 5 IPL games for SRH in IPL 2021 and scored 150 runs averaging 30. SRH had a woeful campaign in IPL 2021, winning only three matches and finishing at the bottom of the points table.

David Warner Thanked SRH Franchise And Is Expecting To Be A Part Of The IPL 2022 Mega Auction

Despite being a stalwart for them, the Sunrisers Hyderabad didn’t retain David Warner, quite expectedly. In the meantime, David Warner also opened up on his future in the cash-rich tournament. One of the fans, recently, asked him about his plans regarding the T20 league.

Warner bro what’s up about IPL,” the fan wrote.

The veteran Australian opener reverted and said that he’s expecting to be a part of the mega auction.

“Auction I guess,” Warner replied.

Earlier, SRH posted a message, bidding farewell to their players. David Warner didn’t miss out on dropping in his words on the social media platform.

“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 truly wish all the fans the very best for the future and hope whoever you wish to support the best. Love the Warner’s,” Warner said while responding to a post by SRH.

Last week, SRH retained Kane Williamson, Abdul Samad, and Umran Malik ahead of the IPL 2022 mega auction. SRH paid Rs 14 crores to New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson followed by Rs 4 crores each to uncapped Jammu and Kashmir talents Abdul Samad and Umran Malik. Meanwhile, David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were also released along with Rashid Khan.

Yuzvendra Chahal May Earn Big Bucks During IPL 2022 Mega Auction: Laxman Sivaramakrishnan

Yuzvendra Chahal is at a strange point in his career. Not too long ago, he was India’s premier spinner in white-ball cricket, but that soon changed when he was not included in India’s T20 World Cup squad in 2021 despite the team taking five spin-bowling options with them to the UAE.
Immediately after India’s disappointing outing in the World Cup, Yuzvendra Chahal was called back for the home T20I series against New Zealand but played only one T20I. A week later, the leg-spinner got another setback as Royal Challengers Bangalore decided not to retain him despite him being one of RCB’s top performers with the ball in the last eight seasons.

Yuzvendra Chahal May End Up Getting More Money For Being In IPL 2022 Auction Pool Instead Of Being Retained By RCB: Laxman Sivaramakrishnan

Former India cricketer Laxman Sivaramakrishnan, however, feels not all is lost for Yuzvendra Chahal. The former leg-spinner, in fact, is of the opinion that Yuzvendra Chahal might actually end up getting big bucks at the auction.

RCB retained Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, and Mohammed Siraj in the IPL retention that took place on Tuesday. Yuzvendra Chahal, who had been a part of the franchise since 2014, was released. However, Laxman Sivaramakrishnan said RCB would want the leg-spinner back in the fold during the mega auction ahead of IPL 2022.

“RCB would want to buy him back. The other teams would want Chahal in their side because of his exceptional record in the IPL. The people who have more money will have the luxury of going for Chahal.

‘In the end, Chahal might end up getting more money for being in the auction than by being retained,” Sivaramakrishnan told NDTV during a media interaction arranged by Sony Sports Network.

Laxman Sivaramakrishnan, who is in the commentary panel for the Ashes, gave an example of the bidding war for Ravichandran Ashwin between RCB and CSK to explain how other franchises might increase the price of Yuzvendra Chahal if RCB desperately wants him back in the side.

“I remember how RCB was raising the paddle seeing CSK going hard for Ashwin. If RCB want Chahal then the other teams might just bid to ensure he costs more to them. So, in the end, Chahal might end up being benefitted,” Sivaramakrishnan added.

Yuzvendra Chahal’s exclusion comes as a huge surprise to RCB fans. The leg-spinner has been the leader of Bangalore’s bowling attack for a good five to six years now. Yuzvendra Chahal is the only RCB bowler to claim more than 100 IPL wickets. Yuzvendra Chahal has thus far featured in 114 IPL games, claiming 139 wickets at an average of 22.28 and an economy rate of 7.59-all for RCB.

The likes of George Garton, Navdeep Saini, Dushmantha Chameera, Tim David, Shahbaz Ahmad, Wanindu Hasaranga, Dan Christian, and retired AB de Villiers were released by Royal Challengers Bangalore before IPL 2022 mega auctions.

Laxman Sivaramakrishnan Said More Indian Payers Being Retained Means They Will Form The Core

Unlike past retentions, only eight overseas players were retained by the teams this time around, while the number of retained Indian players was 19. Laxman Sivaramakrishnan said it was a good sign for Indian cricket.

“The overseas players not being retained are a sign that the Indian players are good enough. And the Indian players is what we really need to look at. The foreign players might make a fortune but the Indian players will form the core,” he added.

David Warner

Asked whether the likes of Steve Smith, David Warner, Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer will be dejected for not being retained by their respective IPL franchises, Laxman Sivaramakrishnan said they would be focused on the Ashes, starting on December 8.

“Playing for the country is first and foremost. Your ambition as a young cricketer is not to play in IPL but to play for the country. There was no IPL when Ben Stokes or Steve Smith started to play.

“So, their aim would always have been to play for England and Australia. There are two ways to look at IPL retention. Firstly, the players who have already been retained will feel a sense of security. The players who have not been retained also have opportunity,” he signed off.

Many of the big-ticket players, including MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, and Glenn Maxwell, were retained. But the list of players released and going back into the auction pool is a long one.

Likes of Rashid Khan, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Shikhar Dhawan, Ravichandran Ashwin, Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan, Shubman Gill, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Deepak Chahar were released by their respective franchises.

Robin Uthappa Believes Rashid Khan Will Fetch Above INR 16 Crore In IPL 2022

Rashid Khan is expected to create history as franchises, including Lucknow and Ahmedabad, would be keen to buy the world-class leg-spinner, after being released by Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) before IPL 2022 auctions.

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) releasing Rashid Khan ahead of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 remains to be one of the biggest talking points in world cricket. Rashid Khan, who has single-handedly won matches for the Orange Army, reportedly wanted to be retained as SRH’s No. 1 player. However, the team management went for Kane Williamson – who will lead the side after David Warner was released.

Rashid Khan Will Fetch Above INR 16 Crore Guesses Robin Uthappa

With Rashid Khan in the auction pool for IPL 2022 mega auctions, cricket fans can be rest assured of history being created by the Afghanistan spinner as every franchise, including Lucknow and Ahmedabad, will go deep into their pockets to buy him.

On the IPL retention day, soon after the retentions lists were announced, senior Indian cricketer Robin Uthappa was asked to guess an amount Rashid Khan would fetch at the auction. Robin Uthappa had represented Chennai Super Kings in the previous edition of the tournament.

“Well and truly above 16 crores,” Robin Uthappa told Star Sports.

It remains to be seen whether Rashid Khan goes into the mega auction or the two new franchises, who can buy three players each from the auction pool till December 25. But, whatever is the case, there’s no doubt that Rashid Khan would fetch a huge amount.

Robin Uthappa

SRH retained three players in Kane Williamson (14 cr), Abdul Samad (4 cr), and Umran Malik (4 cr). SRH also ended its association with David Warner – who had guided them to their maiden IPL title in 2016.

In the UAE leg of IPL 2021, David Warner was abruptly sacked, and Kane Williamson led the squad. The exact reason behind what went wrong between SRH and David Warner is not yet known.

Rashid Khan has been SRH’s best bowler since joining the team back in 2017. His numbers in the IPL stand at a staggering 93 wickets from 76 games at an astonishing economy rate of 6.33.

Rashid Khan, who picked up 18 wickets in 14 matches in the last edition, has consistently turned heads with his bowling exploits in the IPL. Maintaining a good economy of 6.69, he was the seventh-best bowler in the Purple Cap standings last season.

Overall, Rashid Khan has scalped 93 wickets in 76 matches for SRH at an economy of 6.33. Only Bhuvneshwar Kumar (142 wickets), Sandeep Sharma (112 wickets), and Ashish Nehra (106 wickets) have a better wicket-taking record for the franchise than him.

SRH paid Rs 14 crores to New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson followed by Rs 4 crores each to uncapped Jammu and Kashmir talents Abdul Samad and Umran Malik. Meanwhile, David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were also released along with Rashid Khan.

KL Rahul And Shreyas Iyer Are Also Expected To Acquire Big Bucks At IPL 2022 Mega Auctions After Being Released By Punjab Kings And Delhi Capitals Respectively

Meanwhile, Rashid Khan is not the only big name to be a part of the auction pool as several overseas players in David Warner, Kagiso Rabada, Faf du Plessis, Jonny Bairstow, Marcus Stoinis, Trent Boult, Quinton de Kock are up for grabs at the auction.

Among Indian players, KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer have parted ways with Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Delhi Capitals (DC), respectively, and are also expected to fetch huge sums from the auction pool. On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) also released Shubman Gill and might want to buy back the stylish opener at the auction.

Rashid Khan And KL Rahul Not Retained By Their Respective Franchises For IPL 2022; Reasons Revealed

Rashid Khan – the Afghan leg spinner who was not retained by Sunrisers Hyderabad and Punjab Kings who couldn’t retain keeper-batsman KL Rahul were two of the major talking points coming out of Tuesday evening retentions ahead of the IPL 2022 mega auction. Both non-retentions have much more to them than what meets the eye.

Having to release Rashid Khan, one of the leading bowlers in the T20 format, was indeed a difficult negotiation. As one franchisee insider said, letting go of Rashid Khan is akin to Royal Challengers Bangalore releasing Virat Kohli, or Mumbai Indians releasing Rohit Sharma. However, it didn’t seem this straightforward when agents from both parties were involved in an intense war of price tags.

Rashid Khan Wanted To Get Back Into The Auction Pool: SRH CEO

SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) announced the 3 retentions shockingly ahead of IPL 2022, with Rashid Khan not being retained. The ace leg-spinner from Afghanistan has decided to move into the player auction instead of being retained by the IPL 2016 champions.

SRH has retained New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson as their skipper. Uncapped youngsters Abdul Samad and Umran Malik, too, have been retained by the franchise.

Announcing SRH’s retention list on Star Sports, the franchise’s CEO K Shanmugam mentioned that Rashid Khan was a part of their plans. However, Mr. K Shanmugam stated that it was the player’s choice to get back into the auction pool. The decision was respected and acknowledged by the franchise.

Mr K Shanmugam said: “It’s a difficult decision but if a player wants to be in the auction because of the price, we definitely respect the decision. We will try and match him in (terms of) the price and see if we can pick him up in the auction”.

Rashid Khan’s prowess in the T20 format is not unknown. However, he remains one of only four players to have scalped 400 or more wickets. Hence, a bidding war is expected for him in the IPL player auction. This, of course, provided none of the two new teams from Lucknow or Ahmedabad pick Rashid Khan up in a draft prior to the auction.

As previously reported, the SRH team, which had first bought Rashid Khan in the 2017 auction for Rs 4 crore and then used the Right To Match (RTM) card in the 2018 mega auction, wanted to keep the spinner as their No 2 retention. However, it would have meant that Rashid Khan would be entitled to a fee of Rs 11 crore, which is Rs 2 crore more than his current salary.

After initially refusing to be the second retention, Rashid Khan apparently relented but later reneged. SRH says they still have a good equation with the player but not as much with a London-based agent who was playing hardball with the franchise.

The franchise might not have heard back from Rashid Khan after that, but they still hope to buy him in the auction – that is, if one of the two new teams, Ahmedabad and Lucknow, doesn’t rope him in first.

KL Rahul Was Tried To Be Retained By Punjab Kings, But He Wanted To Go Into The IPL 2022 Auction: Ness Wadia

PBKS, in turn, failed to hold on to KL Rahul, whom they had appointed captain keeping long-term goals in mind. The franchise co-owner Ness Wadia did not hide his disappointment.

“He was our captain, we tried our best (to retain Rahul). We wanted him to stay but he wanted to go into the auction. He had different plans,” Wadia said on Tuesday night (November 30).

KL Rahul is understood to be headed for Lucknow.

“We have retained Mayank and Arshdeep who were part of our strategy. In terms of bowling, we are confident Arshdeep will represent India soon. It is too early to say if Mayank will be captain but he is a talented and committed player.

“Our first step was the retention and we will decide what is best for the franchise in terms of captaincy,” Wadia said adding, “Punjab Kings have not done as well as it should have done. We have plans for the next season to ensure better performance. Whatever we need to do we will do to improve and we are looking forward to having a right balance for the side.”

Elsewhere, it was a surprise that Royal Challengers Bangalore left out Yuzvendra Chahal, one of the most consistent performers for the franchise over the years. It is learned that Yuzvendra Chahal may not have agreed to be the No 3 retention, which would have entitled him to only Rs 7 crore. A bigger amount at the auction table is surely a possibility, for which he left RCB.

One of the most expected retentions was of Venkatesh Iyer by Kolkata Knight Riders who, in a span of two months, became an elite player after performing well in the UAE leg of IPL 2021, managing 370 runs which led to his maiden India call-up. The absence of England’s Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer from the Rajasthan Royals’ list. Kumar Sangakkara strove to explain a part of it, saying Jofra Archer’s fitness was an issue.

Tuesday (November 30) saw pre-existing IPL franchises announce their list of retained players ahead of the 2022 season. The usual suspects Rohit Sharma of MI, Virat Kohli of RCB, and MS Dhoni of CSK have all been retained by their teams.
It is worth noting that both Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni have taken a pay cut in comparison to the previous three-year cycle. Virat Kohli will now draw INR 15 crore, as opposed to INR 17 crore earlier. Meanwhile, MS Dhoni’s salary is now INR 12 crore, having drawn INR 15 crore before.
Ravindra Jadeja has been retained by defending champions CSK as their highest-paid player at INR 16 crore. Some of the most notable Indian names to have not been retained by their teams include Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, and Hardik Pandya.

IPL 2022: Lucknow And Ahmedabad To Sign 3 Players Before Mega Auction

IPL 2022 is set to witness the introduction of two new teams, Lucknow and Ahmedabad, who will now look to sign three players before the auction. The much-awaited list of retained players was unveiled on November 30 (Tuesday) ahead of the mega auction of the IPL 2022. The existing eight teams had to make some tough decisions and leave out some of their key players to abide by the rules in place.

All the released players from the existing eight teams now have a chance to play for Lucknow and Ahmedabad in the IPL 2022. However, the two franchises won’t be able to pick more than three players before IPL 2022 mega auctions. They can only sign a maximum of two Indian players and one foreign player.

IPL 2022 Will Witness Lucknow And Ahmedabad To Sign 3 Players Before Auctions

The BCCI had set a price slab for the existing eight teams to retain their players. In a similar way, the two new teams featuring in IPL 2022 will have only Rs 33 crore to spend from their 90 crore purse to sign three players. The break up for the same is – Rs 15 crore, Rs 11 crore, and Rs 7 crore for the first, second, and third player respectively.

“If a player is negotiating with a new franchise, he can do it according to the purse allocation. If someone is in line to become the captain of a new team, then obviously he will be joining for Rs 15 crore,” said a CEO of one of the franchises.

Ahmedabad would be really interested in gaining the services of Hardik and Krunal Pandya, who Mumbai Indians have not retained, so is Ishan Kishan. Suresh Raina, another IPL stalwart, has been released from his franchise, Chennai Super Kings. Shreyas Iyer, who led Delhi Capitals to the 2020 IPL final, has also parted ways with the franchise, who decided to continue with Rishabh Pant as the captain.

KL Rahul To Be Assigned Skipper For Lucknow In IPL 2022: Reports

Reports have already suggested that KL Rahul will be playing for Lucknow next season, with the negotiations starting long back. However, Punjab Kings head coach Anil Kumble confirmed that the opening batter decided to go into the auction and hence the franchise had to release him. Something similar might happen with Rashid Khan, who opted to leave Sunrisers Hyderabad and could end up playing for one of the two new teams.

The deadline for the new teams to sign three players is December 25, and then the mega auction is expected to happen. The date for the mega auction isn’t officially announced yet, but it could happen in January 2022.

Many of the big-ticket players, including MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, and Glenn Maxwell, were retained. But the list of players released and going back into the auction pool is a long one.

Likes of Rashid Khan, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Shikhar Dhawan, Ravichandran Ashwin, Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan, Shubman Gill, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Deepak Chahar were released by their respective franchises.

IPL 2022: Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) Franchise Decides Not To Retain David Warner

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) confirmed their retentions ahead of the IPL 2022 Mega Auction, and Australian opener, David Warner, wasn’t one of them. Although it was along expected lines, it was a rather poor way for the two parties to separate.

The much-publicized feud between David Warner and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) finally came to an end. The eight existing franchisees involved in the IPL announced their retention list. The Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) management opted to retain Kane Williamson, Abdul Samad, and Umran Malik, much to the surprise of the cricketing fraternity.

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) Doesn’t Retain 2021 T20I WC Player Of Tournament David Warner For IPL 2022 Mega Auctions

Former Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) captain David Warner has confirmed he has been released by the franchise despite his stellar campaign in the T20 World Cup 2021, where he bagged the Player of the Tournament award for 289 runs in seven matches for Australia. IPL 2021 has been the Australian’s worst season ever with just 195 runs in 8 games, with two fifties, averaging 24.38, and striking at 107.73.

As the IPL 2021 season resumed in UAE, the Aussie opener featured in the first two games for SRH but aggregated just 2 runs. Leg Spinner Rashid Khan was expected to be the top choice, but SRH was adamant about offering Kane Williamson the biggest contract. While the failure to keep Rashid Khan was a surprise, the most successful batsman of the franchise – David Warner, was also not retained and the 34-year-old took to Instagram to thank the fans.

“Chapter closed!! Thanks to all of the fans @srhfansofficial @sunrisersfansofficial for your support over all the years, it was was much appreciated. #fans #loyal.”

David Warner was bought by Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the 2014 IPL auction for USD 880,000. The very next year, he was appointed as the captain. In the 2016 IPL, he led them to their second trophy, defeating Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the final.

David Warner Is The Only Batsman To Win The Orange Cap Thrice

Along with AB de Villiers, David Warner is one of the most successful overseas players in the history of the IPL. To date, he is the only batsman to win the Orange Cap three times. In just 95 innings for SRH, David Warner amassed 4014 runs at a brilliant average of 49.56 and an excellent strike rate of 142.59.

David Warner is still the only player to win the IPL Orange Cap three times, and with SRH on all occasions. He even led SRH to an IPL title in 2016 and holds the record for the second-most runs in a single edition of the IPL (848 in 2017) after Virat Kohli’s 873 runs in 2016. He has been Sunrisers Hyderabad’s (SRH) star opener for a number of years, having carried the weight of a fragile middle order single-handedly. He was the Orange Cap winner in 2015, 2017, and 2019.

He is still the IPL’s 5th highest scorer, having amassed 5449 runs in 150 games averaging 41.59 with 4 tons and 50 fifties. He has hit the maximum number of the fifties in IPL history. David Warner led SRH to their maiden IPL title in 2016 as they defeated Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore in the final by eight runs.

Sunrisers Hyderabad has let go of a majority of their overseas stars before IPL Auction 2022. New Zealand all format skipper batsman Kane Williamson is the only foreigner retained by Hyderabad.

Other retained players-Abdul Samad, has played 23 IPL matches managing 222 runs besides picking 2 scalps, while pacer Umran Malik has played only 3 IPL games picking 2 scalps.
