As IPL Player Retention Concludes, Internet Goes Abuzz Hilarious Memes And Jokes

Published on 5 January, 2018 at 2:37 pm By

The Player Retention Process of Indian Premier League was conducted on January 4 and there were quite a few surprises. Returning to the tournament after a 2-year ban, Chennai Super Kings, retained MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina and Ravindra Jadeja.

Virat Kohli was kept by Royal Challengers Bangalore and the most startling part of his retention was his fee of whopping Rs 17 crore. Retaining Kohli was a predicted and obvious choice but it wasn’t expected that RCB will spend such a huge amount on the Indian team captain. This has made him the most expensive player in IPL’s history.

Another unpredictable part of the retention process was Kolkata Knight Riders releasing Gautam Gambhir. It came as a huge shock to Gambhir fans as the skipper led KKR to two titles, has hit the most number of boundaries (484) and 50s (35) (along with David Warner) in the history of the tournament and is the 4th highest run-getter of the IPL.
