On November 26, the 10 Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises disclosed their retentions and releases for the 2024 season. The spotlight hovered over notable players facing the decision of retention or release, particularly those who commanded significant investments in the previous seasons.

Harry Brook and Others Let Go Ahead of IPL Season.

Despite high expectations for these players to play pivotal roles for their teams, they fell short of meeting the anticipated potential, resulting in their release ahead of the forthcoming season. In this article, we highlight a few prominent signings from the last season who were ultimately released before the IPL 2024 auction. Stay tuned for live updates on retention and releases.

In the IPL 2024 auction, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) made a significant investment, acquiring England batter Harry Brook for a whopping INR 13.25 crores. Despite high expectations, Brook’s performance fell short, tallying only 190 runs from 11 matches with a meager average of 21.11 and a strike-rate of 123.37. Despite a notable century against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Brook struggled to find consistency, batting both as an opener and in the middle-order.

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) had high hopes for Ben Stokes, securing the English Test captain for a substantial INR 16.25 crores. Unfortunately, Stokes’ IPL 2023 campaign was marred by a heel injury, limiting him to just two matches. Eventually, he withdrew from the tournament, leading to his release by CSK.

Rajasthan Royals (RR) invested INR 5.75 crores in Jason Holder, anticipating a pivotal role. However, Holder’s performance was subpar, claiming only four wickets in eight matches with an economy rate of 9.96. Despite his reputation for impactful batting, Holder managed only 12 runs in three innings, prompting RR to release the former West Indies skipper.

These high-profile releases underscore the unpredictability of player performance in the IPL, with teams making strategic decisions to optimize their squads for the upcoming season.
