The IPL trophyThree uncapped players among 24 retained for IPL Season 7

Twenty-four players, including 14 Indians (of which three are uncapped) and ten overseas, were retained as the retention window for the 2014 Pepsi IPL season closed at 1700 hours on Friday.

IPL chairman Ranjib Biswal, said: “The regulations were drafted taking into account franchise, player and fan feedback. Continuity of the core players in the teams is very important and the retention of these 24 players, coupled with the “rights to match” (RTM) to be used in the auction, is a good sign. 

“I am very pleased to see three uncapped Indian players in the list of players retained.  The IPL is a great platform for young talent.”

The three uncapped players are: Manan Vohra (Kings XI Punjab), Sanju Samson and Stuart Binny (Rajasthan Royals).

Defending champions Mumbai Indians, formidable Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals are three teams that exhausted all their five retentions available.
