Old IPL teams allowed four retentions, three early picks for new teams: Report

Existing IPL teams can retain four players with various combinations while new teams can pick one overseas player before 2022 auction

Old Indian Premier League franchises can retain up to four players ahead of the 2022 option while new IPL teams from Ahmedabad and Lucknow are allowed three early picks ahead of the auction, ESPNCricinfo reported.

The report said that existing teams can choose to retain two Indian and two overseas players or three Indians and one overseas players with no restrictions on being capped or uncapped. While clarifying that these discussions are still informal, IPL said that the two new franchises can pick two Indians and one overseas players.

Unlike the 2018 auction, franchises will not be provided with Right-To-Match (RTM) cards for the 2022 auction. Earlier, teams could retain five players in total by combining RTM cards and retention rules. 

It is not clear if the new teams will be allowed to pick the players who are set to be retained the existing franchises. If the new teams try to sign players from the retention pool, a player-draft system will be put in place. The deadline for retaining players is likely to be the end of November.

The franchises are likely to get a purse of Rs 90 crore which is higher than the Rs 85 crore available for 2021 auction. With every retention, teams will have deductions on the salary cap as was the case with the 2018 auction where the retained players' salary cap was set to Rs 33 crore.
