A total of 76 players in focus as we look at the best predicted released players list for all 10 teams ahead of the IPL 2024 Auction.
Amidst all the excitement surrounding World Cup 2023, there are a bunch of Analysts and Team Management who are busy finalizing the players for the 17th edition of the Indian Premier League, the IPL 2024. It’s only a week before the deadline for announcing their retained and released players list ahead of the IPL 2024 Auction.
Similar to 2023, the IPL 2024 Auction will see a Mini Auction. So, the teams will try to retain as many players as possible. However, as has always been the case, we should see teams letting go of the players who have had a disappointing IPL, and were unable to replicate their form in the Domestic or International circuit.
In our previous article, we had a look at the best retained players for all teams for IPL 2024. But in this article, we shall look at the best predicted released players list that Teams could say bye-bye to. Just so you know, the budget for teams for IPL 2024 Auction shall be INR 100 Cr, which is 5 Cr more than the last year’s Auction.
#1: Chennai Super Kings
Chennai Super Kings are one team that rarely does changes to their side even after having a bad season. However, being defending champions, CSK should retain as many as 24 players in their side. The unfortunate one who could miss out is Ambati Rayudu, who is already retired. The overseas pacers Kyle Jamieson and Sisanda Magala could be out as well due to lack of potential.
