The franchise also retained the talented wicketkeeper-batsman Sanju Samson.
Kolkata Knight Riders retained their skipper Gautam Gambhir along with mystery spinner Sunil Narine for the next edition of the cash-rich league, while Sunrisers Hyderabad did the same with Shikhar Dhawan and Dale Steyn.
The only surprise decision came from Kings XI Punjab who retained the uncapped Manan Vohra along with David Miller. “I never thought I would be retained. IPL gave me recognition and a platform. I am hoping to deliver the goods again for KXIP,” Vohra said.
Delhi Daredevils, meanwhile, chose not to exercise the option as they wish to focus on “building a fresh team”. Bangalore had announced on Thursday they were going ahead with Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers.
The auction will be held in Bangalore on February 12 and 13.
