November 15 being the last date to announce the retained and released players, the IPL franchises are sharing the lists. The latest is Sunrisers Hyderabad. The 2-time champions have released 9 players while they retained 17 players. Earlier, they had traded Shikhar Dhawan to Delhi Daredevils in exchange for 3 players.

Carlos Brathwaite, Chris Jordan and Alex Hales are the overseas players who were let go of. Indian wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha has also been released. The 34-year-old has been suffering from injuries and has been out of the Indian national side for long. There are 4 other uncapped players who found themselves on the list of released players.

Sunrisers retained David Warner who had missed the last edition. After his involvement in the ball-tampering scandal, he was suspended by Cricket Australia. The SRH management also decided not to include him in the squad. In his absence, Kane Williamson had led the side.

Williamson’s captaincy was brilliant as he led his side to the playoffs. It will be interesting to see whether the Kiwi retains his position as the leader or Warner wins back the captaincy. The core of the side will remain the same. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Manish Pandey will be the regular features. With Dhawan’s departure, the franchise would now be looking to bring in a quality opener to accompany Warner.

Retained players

Basil Thampi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Hooda, Manish Pandey, Natarajan, Ricky Bhui, Sandeep Sharma, Shreevats Goswami, Siddarth Kaul, Syed Khaleel Ahmed, Yusuf Pathan, Billy Stanlake, David Warner, Kane Williamson, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Shakib Al Hasan, Abhishek Sharma (Traded), Shahbad Nadeem (Traded), Vijay Shankar (Traded)

Released players

Sachin Baby, Tanmay Agarwal, Wriddhiman Saha, Chris Jordan, Carlos Brathwaite, Alex Hales, Bipul Sharma, Syed Mehdi Hasan, Shikhar Dhawan (Traded)
