IPL Player Retention 2018: Date, Time and Live streaming

This time around ahead of the regular IPL Auction event in Bengaluru on January 27 and 28, the IPL Player Retention will be a crucial event as well.

The IPL Governing Council recently announced that a team can retain upto five players, either by using the player retention policy or through the newly-introduced Right to Match card.

In the past, retentions took place via emails but this year, it has been understood that the franchises have been asked to send their representatives to the venue in Mumbai on January 4 and make the announcement of the players they are going to retain.

With the deadline for the retentions closing in, it has been reported that Star Sports will telecast the event.

Every team has a chance of retaining a maximum of three players. Two more players can be retained by a franchise but that would be at the IPL Auction by making use of their Right to Match (RTM) card.

With Star India entering the picture by bagging the broadcast rights, every event will be aired live on TV and on their streaming property. The media giant bagged the IPL media rights in September for a period of five years starting 2018. They paid a jaw dropping Rs 16,347.50 crore to keep the former IPL broadcasters Sony Pictures Network India (SPNI) at bay.
