IPL Retentions 2021: Big Takeaways - Teams Release Overseas Players, Large Indian Contingent Retained
The 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (2021) is scheduled to start in early April in India with a mini-auction slated to take place in February. Ahead of the auction, the 8 franchises announced a list of retained and released players with some interesting takeaways. The biggest surprise was the release of Steven Smith, the captain of the Rajasthan Royals, who had an indifferent run with the bat in IPL 2020 in the UAE. This seemed to be following a larger trend of letting go of a number of big overseas players while building on a strong core of domestic players for the tournament.
