The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 Trade Window has officially been shut official on November 15. Ahead of the auctions, happening later this year, the teams have declared the list of players retained and release. Each of these teams took to social media and shared their list. A lot of shock announcements were made as franchises stuck with the core players and released many high-profile names as the trade window ended.
Yuvraj Singh was on Thursday released by Kings XI Punjab ahead of the Indian Premier League auction next month while Rajasthan Royals let go left-arm pacer Jaydev Unadkat after paying a whopping Rs 11.5 crore for his services earlier this year.
While Three-time Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Mumbai Indians on Thursday retained 18 players including captain Rohit Sharma but let go some top international stars including South African JP Duminy and fast bowling pair of Australian Pat Cummins and Bangladesh's Mustafizur Rahman.
