There would be a number of franchises who would look to get the services of Harshal. Teams looking for a wicket-taking Indian pacer would bid for him. RCB retained Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, and Mohammed Siraj and left out Harshal for better purse management. Harshal also confirmed he has not had any communications or offers from any franchise.
“When I was not retained, Mike Hesson called me and said, that it was mainly purse management. They would obviously love to have me back in the team and I too would obviously would love to go back and play for the team because RCB and this season (2021) changed my entire career and my entire life. However, in terms of auction, I haven’t heard from any franchises yet,” Patel had told the portal.
Dhoni, who led CSK to a win last year, has already been retained by the franchise along with Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ravindra Jadeja, and Moeen Ali.
CSK would be favourites to win the crown in 2022 as well. It would be interesting to see the role Dhoni plays for CSK at 40.
