RR IPL 2023 Retention: Daryl Mitchell, James Neesham, Nathan Coulter-Nile, and Rassie van der Dussen are among the nine players released by the 2022 losing finalists, freeing up some international slots. However, they, like some of the other teams, have retained the core of the squad that led them to the summit clash last year.
In the mega-auction held earlier in February before IPL 2022, the champions of the inaugural season paid INR 5 crore for the services of the astute off-spinner.
The Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals were in a bidding war for the Tamil Nadu spinner, and the seasoned spinner was eventually acquired by the Rajasthan Royals.
