3. Andrew Tye

He was picked for INR 1 crore as a replacement and might not be retained next year. LSG might look to get back Wood, but considering it is an Ashes summer next year with the World Cup, later on, they might opt for an overseas cover for him.

2. Ankit Rajpoot

They have the variety of a fast-bowling allrounder in Jason Holder, and a pacer in Dushmantha Chameera. Indian quicks like Avesh Khan and Mohsin Khan have also performed splendidly throughout the season. It looks further unlikely that Rajpoot will get a game anytime soon, thus it looks likely they might release him and try to plug another hole in their squad.

1. Manish Pandey

Considering the price tag of Manish Pandey, it looks likely that LSG will release him for another solid middle-order batter who can bridge the gap between KL Rahul at the top and Hooda and Stoinis in the middle to take the franchise forward.
