IPL 2019 Teams Full Squad

Chennai Super Kings (CSK)

Having retained the bulk of the squad beforehand, CSK had a minor role to play during the latest auction. However, they did bring in a value addition to their Indian pace arsenal in the form of Mohit Sharma, who had essayed key roles for the team in the past.

Retained: MS Dhoni (C), Suresh Raina, Deepak Chahar, KM Asif, Karn Sharma, Dhruv Shorey, Faf du Plessis, M Vijay, Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Billings, Mitchell Santner, David Willey, Dwayne Bravo, Shane Watson, Lungi Ngidi, Imran Tahir, Kedar Jadhav, Ambati Rayudu, Harbhajan Singh, N Jagadeesan, Shardul Thakur, Monu Kumar, Chaitanya Bishnoi

Bought: Mohit Sharma (Rs 5 crore), Ruturaj Gaikwad (Rs 20 lakh)

Delhi Capitals

Having retained 14 players and acquiring Shikhar Dhawan during the transfer window, Delhi’s auction outing was all about filling the gaps. They had let go of overseas names like Glenn Maxwell, Jason Roy and Liam Plunkett, and to make up for it they roped in solid options like Keemo Paul, Sherfane Rutherford and Colin Ingram, which blends well with the young Indian names in the set up.

Retained: Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw, Amit Mishra, Avesh Khan, Harshal Patel, Rahul Tewatia, Jayant Yadav, Manjot Kalra, Colin Munro, Chris Morris, Kagiso Rabada, Sandeep Lamichhane, Trent Boult

Bought: Hanuma Vihari (Rs 2 crore), Axar Patel (Rs 5 crore), Ishant Sharma (Rs 1.10 crore), Ankush Bains (Rs 20 lakh), Nathu Singh (Rs 20 lakh), Colin Ingram (Rs 6.40 crore), Sherfane Rutherford (Rs 2 crore), Keemo Paul (Rs 50 lakh), Jalaj Saxena (Rs 20 lakh), Bandaru Ayyappa (Rs 20 lakh)

KINGS XI PUNJAB (KXIP)

Kings XI Punjab were heavily dependant on the top order in IPL 2018, especially KL Rahul, and their shortcomings with the middle order eventually cost them a spot in the playoffs. In order to address the imbalance, they chose to refurbish their squad by only retained 10 players before the auction – letting go several Indian names, including Yuvraj Singh, Manoj Tiwary, Axar Patel and Mohit Sharma.

Retained: KL Rahul, Chris Gayle, Andrew Tye, Mayank Agarwal, Ankit Rajpoot, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Karun Nair, David Miller and Ravichandran Ashwin

Bought: Moises Henriques (Rs 1 crore), Nicholas Pooran (Rs 4.2 crore), Varun Chakaravarthy (Rs 8.4 crore), Sam Curran (Rs 7.2 crore), Mohammad Shami (Rs 4.2 crore), Sarfaraz Khan (Rs 25 lakh), Hardus Viljoen (Rs 75 lakh), Arshdeep Singh (Rs 20 lakh), Darshan Nalkande (Rs 30 lakh), Prabhsimran Singh (Rs 4.8 crore), Agnivesh Ayachi (Rs 20 lakh), Harpreet Brar (Rs 20 lakh), Murugan Ashwin (Rs 20 lakh)
