The first step towards what is expected to be another edition of a frenetic Indian Premier League (IPL) auction for the 2019 edition was taken on Thursday, 15 November. The list of all players retained and released by the eight franchises of the cash-rich T20 league was released as teams opted to make few changes before the next month auction.

The retention of Australian duo Steve Smith and David Warner by Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad headlined the activity. Both the players missed out on the 2018 edition after receiving one-year bans from Cricket Australia for the ball-tampering incident.

Among Indian heavyweights to be released were Gautam Gambhir (Delhi Daredevils) and Yuvraj Singh (Kings XI Punjab). Gambhir, who stepped down as Daredevils' captain midway through the last season, was bought for Rs 2.8 crore, while KXIP dished out Rs 2 crore for the services of Yuvraj. Rajasthan also decided to let go of left-arm pacer Jaydev Unadakat, for whom they spent Rs 11.5 crore in the previous auction.
