The eight Indian Premier League teams have finalised the list of players they have chosen to retain and those which they have released ahead of the 2015 competition.

123 players have been retained and there were five player trades during the window which closed on 12th December.

The players who have been released by their franchises can now decide to be entered into the auction ahead of the new season.

Last year's finalists Kings XI Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders have released just three players, the same number that Rajasthan Royals have let go.

Chennai Super Kings have released four players while Delhi Daredevils released 13 players including Kevin Pietersen, Dinesh Karthik and Ross Taylor.

Michael Hussey, Zaheer Khan and Pragyan Ojha are among the 10 released by Mumbai Indians and a number of high profile stars have been allowed to leave Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Albie Morkel, Muttiah Muralitharan, Ravi Rampaul, Yuvraj Singh and three others have been released.
