The other 10 released KKR players include West Indian Carlos Brathwaite, South African Anrich Nortje, former India players Piyush Chawla and Robin Uthappa, who struggled to get going last season.
Kings XI Punjab: David Miller, Andrew Tye, Sam Curran, Varun Chakravarthy, Agnivesh Ayachi, Moises Henriques, Prabhsimran Singh. RCB have the maximum number of slots available: 12 domestic and six foreign as the franchise have retained only crucial players of their squad.
In the 13th edition of IPL, Mumbai Indians will take the field as defending champions as they won the previous title against MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad. The left-arm fast bowler Trent Boult was traded by the Delhi Capitals in last season but now he has been roped in by Mumbaikars for the next year. But that will suffice their needs because Mumbai Indians might be looking to add a couple of players who could serve as good back-ups. Apart from Yuvraj Singh, Mumbai Indians released nine more players. For the first time in the history of IPL, the Board of control for cricket in India (BCCI) has made a decision to conduct the auctions in a new city and not in Bengaluru.
RCB have released as many as 12 players including mid-season replacement Dale Steyn for IPL 2020.
Delhi Capitals, who had traded in Ravichandran Ashwin and Ajinkya Rahane from KXIP and Rajasthan Royals respectively, have retained young Prithvi Shaw whose doping ban ends on Friday.
Players released (5): Chris Morris, Colin Ingram, Hanuma Vihari, Ankush Bains and Colin Munro.
Rajasthan Royals have released 11 players including pacer Jaydev Unadkat, whom they had bought back for Rs 8.4 crore past year after paying Rs 11.5 crore for him in the previous season.
Sunrisers Hyderabad: Deepak Hooda, Martin Guptill, Shakib Al Hasan, Yusuf Pathan, Ricky Bhui.
