The Indian Premier League (IPL) has seen a lot of successful players. Several cricketers have gone on to become synonymous with a particular IPL franchise they have played for. This has led to franchises retaining such kind of players and not releasing them from their respective teams.
However, there have been several instances where teams don’t retain players who have been in good form. This move has backfired for them more often than not. They were released by one franchise due to poor performance only to end up performing well for another team in the following season.
A lot of players come under this category. Unfortunately, every team has made this mistake and thus, would regret releasing a particular player from their team. Today we shall be taking a look at one player each team will regret for releasing in IPL history.
1. Chennai Super Kings – Andrew Tye
Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are one of the smartest teams in IPL history. Seldom do you see their decisions not working well for them. However, even they had once released a player that they would now regret releasing.
Andrew Tye was with CSK in 2015. After they completed their two year suspension, they had a chance of using their RTM card to get back two overseas players who represented the franchise in 2015. The yellow army, thus had the chance of using their RTM card to get Andrew Tye back.
However, they didn’t do so as they went on to use their RTM card for Dwayne Bravo and Faf Du Plessis. Not having Andrew Tye turned out to be a mistake as he was in superb form back then. He then went on to represent the Punjab Kings (then Kings XI Punjab) and even won the Purple Cap that year.
