Hyderabad's new owners retain 20 players
Sun TV Network, the new owners of the Hyderabad IPL franchise, have retained 20 players from the terminated Deccan Chargers, meeting the October 31 deadline by when the teams had to announce which players they were giving a contract extension to for the 2013 season, and which players they were releasing. A total of 179 players have been retained by the nine franchises on the same financial terms.
Each franchise has a salary cap of up to $12.5m to spend on their 2013 squad, which can contain a maximum of 33 players, including 11 from overseas. The trading window opens on November 19, when teams will be able to sign uncapped Indian players, including the 52 whose contracts were not extended. From November 1, franchises can re-sign players who they took as temporary replacements in IPL 2012.
