Other players who have been released are Sachin Baby, Carlos Brathwaite, and Chris Jordan. Earlier, SRH had traded off Shikhar Dhawan to Daredevils.
Meanwhile, keeping an eye on the World Cup next year have restricted their players from playing the entire league as they want their players to prepare for the big tournament, instead. This means as his ban would be over, he would be available for selection for the World Cup, that means he may have to leave IPL mid-way.
The SRH retention list includes the likes of Warner (who was absent in the previous edition after the ball-tampering act), Kane Williamson, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Manish Pandey. SRH have also managed to trade three players – Shahbaz Nadeem, Vijay Shankar and Abhishek Sharma ( all from Delhi Daredevils in exchange for Dhawan).
SRH after Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings became the third team to announce their list of players for the forthcoming IPL season.
