It would be interesting to see how the released and retained players would unfold their skills in the tenth edition of the famous Indian Premier Leauge. Also it would be the retained players who will be having some extra responsibility on their shoulders as their franchise and staff have kept faith on them. Whereas, the released players would have an opportunity to play with some new players in some other new team and to win the hearts of the fans of their new teams.
