With the IPL mini-auction just around the corner, all 10 Indian Premier League teams were tasked with finalising their list of retained players for the 2023 season. Here’s how the teams share up post ‘Retention Deadline Day’.

The IPL 2023 auction will also see an increased salary cap of Rs. 95 crores, compared to last year’s cap of Rs. 90 crores.
