IPL 2024 Auction: Full List Of Players Retained & Released By Royal Challengers Bangalore. Preparations for the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL 2024) season are in full swing among the franchises, with the deadline to announce the list of released and retained players approaching. Despite a decent performance in IPL 2022 under the leadership of Faf du Plessis, the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) faced challenges in IPL 2023, missing out on the playoffs. Winning seven out of 14 games and finishing sixth, RCB identified issues in their batting and bowling departments. They are now gearing up to address these concerns in the IPL 2024 auction, aiming to secure their maiden IPL title.

RCB released wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik and pacers Harshal Patel and Anuj Rawat. Following these releases, they now have INR 40.75 crore in their purse. The final deadline for all IPL franchises to submit their retention lists is today, November 26. The auction for IPL 2024 is scheduled for December 19 in Dubai.

Keep an eye on Glenn Maxwell, who showcased lethal form in the recently concluded World Cup with a match-winning performance for Australia against Afghanistan. RCB is hopeful for a similar impact from the dynamic all-rounder. Players released by their franchises will be up for auction on December 19 in Dubai ahead of IPL 2024. In the event of going unsold, these players still have a chance to participate in the IPL, provided a team acquires them as a replacement.
