A mega auction will be held for the 15th season of the Indian Premier League and in view of that, the discussion on retaining players has also started. According to reports, eight franchises can hold a maximum of four players. Though no official announcement has been made yet, the Mumbai Indians have already made a big decision regarding their star all-rounder Hardik Pandya.

Known as the most successful team in the league, Mumbai have made it clear that they will not retain Hardik. The news agency PTI quoted the IPL official as saying that if Hardik’s current form is examined, there is not much hope of retaining him.

Hardick has been battling injury and his fitness for the past few years, which has also affected his performance. Last season, he scored 127 runs in 14 games at an average of 14. Not only that, he has not bowled for the team in the last two seasons.

Mumbai could retain Rohit Sharma, Jaspreet Bumra and Kieran Pollard after reviewing the retention rule, the official said. Apart from this, the team can keep any of Suryakumar Yadav and Ishant Kishan with them. “Keeping Hardik away is purely cricket because the team realizes that he is no longer a dangerous all-rounder and is playing as a batsman. However, Hardick can be put up for auction in view of the team budget.

From IPL 2022, Ahmedabad and Lucknow will have two new teams, with a view to holding the auction by the end of November or December.
