With the IPL 2024 auction drawing up close, teams have now decided on their final list of released and retained players for the new season. Defending champions Chennai Super Kings did not shake their winning combination too much but released those who don't fit into their plans.

This will, however, be the third and the final year of the three-year contract for each player and a mega-auction is expected next year.

IPL 2024 Players Released

As of the previous season, BCCI allowed franchises to use the "TRADE" option where teams can exchange players between them. The 'IPL Trade Window' allows the franchises to either swap players between themselves or buy players for an all-cash deal. 

The IPL 2024 players released will be put up on auction and get the opportunity to join another team before the league begins.

According to the IPL rules, each franchise can have 25 players in their squad, out of which a maximum of 8 can be foreign players. In Playing XI, each team can have a maximum of 4 overseas players in the mix.

IPL 2024 Teams Purse Value

BCCI increased the purse value of the franchises by INR 5 crores over the existing purse value of about INR 95 crores. Notably, Ben Stokes' unavailability increased CSK's purse value substantially and could be a blessing in disguise. They has the fourth-highest purse remaining. 

CSK Remaining purse: Chennai Super Kings have a remaining value of INR 32.1 crore and 6 slots to fill, out of which 3 are overseas.


The absence of Ben Stokes and Ambati Rayudu will be massive as both players were match-winners in their own ways. While CSK has a talented pool of players with a bag of varied experiences, they will look to fill the void left with the addition of some key players and bolster their squad for the upcoming season.
