IPL 2023 retentions: Here’s the complete list of players retained and released by Royal Challengers Bangalore before the mini-auction in Kochi on December 23.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) has announced its set of retentions ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 auction on Tuesday.

The three-time IPL runner-up will be led by skipper Faf du Plessis in a squad that has released five players and retained its core ahead of the IPL 2023 mini-auction which will take place on December 23 in Kochi.

The team has traded Jason Behrendorff to Mumbai Indians and also released Aneeshwar Gautam, Chama Milind, Luvnith Sisodia, Sherfane Rutherford who were not part of its starting XI last season. Rajat Patidar, who had a stellar season after coming in as a replacement for Sisodia has been retained by the franchise ahead of the auction.

In addition to the purse remaining from the previous auction and the value of the players each side has released, the teams have an additional Rs 5 crore to spend in the upcoming auction — to be held in Kochi on December 23 — taking the overall purse tally to Rs 95 crore.

RCB now has INR 8.75 crore remaining in the purse post its retentions. It can also fill up as many as two overseas slots following the release of Behrendroff and Rutherford.
