IPL 2022 Retention, Rules

The latest report claims that BCCI decides to allow IPL teams to retain 4 players for IPL 2022. Following the rules mentioned above for retention, teams are allowed to retain one in two ways:

  • Three Indian players along with one overseas player
  • Two Indian players with two overseas players
  • The above-mentioned format has not yet been approved by the BCCI in terms of players retention. Holding the best 4 players of the team will reduce the chance of accessing the star players for the new 2 teams that are yet to add to the IPL 2022 mega auction.
  • A report suggests that eight IPL franchises will be allowed to keep as many as three players to their core. If an IPL side has retained 3 players ahead of the auctions, they can use their RTM card to avail the services of two more players from the auction pool once again.
  • In previous mega auctions, the franchises were allowed to use the Right-to-match (RTM) card through which they were allowed to match the auction price of the players. The rule is applicable only during the Mega IPL auction when franchises can retain only 3 players ahead of the season.
  • The Right to Match Card (RTM) is a facility that allows the teams to avail the services of players who have previously played for the franchise from the auction pool.
  • So, if an IPL side has retained 3 players ahead of the auctions, they can use their RTM card to avail the services of two more players from the auction pool once again.

SRH Retained Players 2022

Kane Williamson will be the first option for SRH in their IPL 2022 players retention. If SRH decides to build a strong bowling unit with Indian players then Natarajan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be the better options.

As far SRH is concerned their first retainment will be their skipper Kane Williamson, while they could not leave Rashid Khan on the other hand there might be hard bargain between the two parties.

Rashid Khan is unlikely to be retained by SRH as the Afghan spinner is not willing to be SRH’s second retained player ahead of IPL 2022 mega auction. Notably, the difference between the two positions is INR 4 crore.
