The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 will be played from April 8 and the franchises have started the process of releasing and retaining the players according to their preference. Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s blog on the updates from the T20 league.

Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) released Cheteshwar Pujara, Laxmipathy Balaji and Murali Kartik from their squad for the next season of Indian Premier League (IPL). These cricketers were not regular in their playing eleven and the KXIP.

The biggest news that has come so far in ahead of the IPL auction 2015 is that star Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has been released by the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). The Bangalore-based franchise had purchased the cricketer for a whopping price of Rs 14 crores — making him the costliest player in the IPL auction 2014.

Monday was the last day for franchises to send the IPL a list of players they wanted to release. The franchise paid Rs 1.9 crore for Pujara, Rs 1.8 crore for Balaji and Rs 1 crore for Kartik at the auction held this February. Kings XI can now generated Rs 4.7 crore to their auction purse for the 2015 season.

Last season, KXIP reached the final of IPL and lost narrowly against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). The George Bailey-led team have a well balanced squad with full of T20 specialists. So it was tough for players like Pujara, Balaji and Kartik to get a place in the playing eleven.
