Franchises have confirmed their retained list for 2023, with an auction slated for December.

Hales and Jordan were released by the KKK and CSK.

Tymal Mills, who didn’t play in the World Cup, was dropped by the Mumbai Indians. Jason Roy and Benny Howell were released by the Gujrat Titans and Punjab Kings.

Hales hit 212 runs in six innings, including 86 not out in 47 balls in the semi-final against India.

As a replacement for the injured Mark Wood, Jordan started in the semi-final and final and took five wickets. Sam Billings, a bit-part player for England in all formats this year, has been released by Kolkata Knight Riders.

IPL sides have retained World Cup winners Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, and Wood.

England’s white-ball skipper Buttler will stay with Rajasthan Royals after scoring 863 runs in 2022.

Moeen will stay with the Chennai Super Kings, while Livingstone and Wood resigned from the Lucknow Super Giants.

David Willey, another unused squad member, was retained by Royal Challengers Bangalore. Jonny Bairstow and Jofra Archer kept their contracts with Punjab and Mumbai.

Ben Stokes hasn’t played in the IPL since 2020. He was injured in 2021 and sat out 2022.

He may be available for the 2023 IPL after helping England win the World Cup with his first T20 half-century against Pakistan.

Sam Curran might be highly sought after at auction after being crowned player of the tournament in Australia for his bowling.

Since being released by CSK in 2020, he hasn’t played in the IPL.

Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, and Harry Brook could potentially be interested.

Daryl Mitchell, Nathan Coulter-Nile, and Rassie van der Dussen were released by the Rajasthan Royals.

Jason Holder was cut by Lucknow Super Giants, and Lockie Ferguson joined Roy at Gujrat Titans. Pat Cummings and Aaron Finch are also released by Kolkata Knight Riders.

Kane Williamson was dropped by Sunrises Hyderabad and Kieron Pollard by Mumbai Indians.

What’s Next for England’s T20 Champions? Greatness?

How did it start? What caused this moment? Who led to success?

The T20 World Cup triumph is no exception.

Ben Stokes wins World Cup final for redemption

England went from white-ball no-hopers to the first men’s side to hold both the 50-over and T20 world titles at the same time.

And then?

Greatness. At least that’s the hope of head coach Mott and managing director Key after Ben Stokes’ winning run at the MCG.

If they keep winning, they may be one of the best cricket teams and one of England’s best sports teams, Key said.

Meanwhile, Mott turned a strong Australia women’s squad into one of the most dominant in living memory.

Nasser Hussain asked if he wants to do the same with England limited overs “Now, we’re playing for the World Cup.

“Aspiring to be great is our goal.”

By winning two limited-overs world titles, England has established itself as one of the game’s best teams.

West Indies won the first two World Cups in the 1970s, then Australia won three in a row from 1999 to 2007, when India won the first T20 World Cup.

Can England be compared to these great sides? Most would argue no, given to the excellence of those sides in Test cricket.

England has time and is not done.

In the next two years, they will defend both world titles, and with their talent, structure, and environment, expect Buttler’s side to be among the favorites again.

You may ask India how hard it is to win even one world event, let alone four in five years.

Even boasting the most talent in international cricket, a generational squad, and financial might only England and Australia can match, India hasn’t won an ICC event since 2011.

England have won two of the past three but concede they needed some luck and were good enough to take advantage.

From the side that won in Australia, just four are under 30: Harry Brook, 23, Sam Curran, 24, Phil Salt, 26, and Liam Livingstone, who will be 30 before the 50-over World Cup in India.

Given how fast the next tournaments are, you shouldn’t expect a big drop in the next two years.

In T20, athletes may play longer and maintain their performance level, but does England want a group dominated by mid-30s by 2024?

Will Jacks, Ben Duckett, and Saqib Mahmood hope not, and a decision must be taken on when to phase out some of the old guard and offer a chance to some promising younger players.

Some of England’s stars from Australia may not be in the squad for India, the Caribbean, or USA.

Such a busy schedule raises questions about workloads. Stokes has retired from one-day international cricket, but following Sunday’s success, he may rethink for next year’s 50-over competition.

If not, he may be tasked with helping inexperienced players in the 20-over format while the ODI side prepares to defend its championship.

With Mott and Buttler as captain, England is building on the foundation left by Bayliss and Morgan.

“Jos made every big call at the T20 World Cup,” Key said “That gut feeling got them there.

“As good as they were before, they’ve gotten better”

It should delight England fans. A club that was already the strongest white-ball side is becoming better and might construct a limited-overs dynasty.

Stop pondering the future. Double world champions, England. This is a good time.

Sri Lankan cricketer Danushka Gunathilaka returned to court a day before asking to reconsider his release restrictions.

The 31-year-old is on remand after being charged with four charges of sexual coercion.

He was excused from court on Wednesday because of a demand to retrieve digital material from a government agency.

Magistrate Robert Williams gave access to a USB holding files.

Cricketers’ defense lawyers will have access to CCTV footage from a train station.

The cricket player paired with a woman on a dating app and they chatted before meeting on November 2.

Police said the couple had cocktails in the city before going to the woman’s home at 11pm.

Police said Mr Gunathilaka ignored the woman’s appeal to “take it gently” and choked and abused her in her house.

The batsman allegedly pushed the woman after they went to bed. Police said the woman was apprehensive and only agreed to continue if Gunathilaka wore a condom.

“He resisted but consented,” police documents said.

The court heard the woman found the condom by the bed.

The woman was “shocked” and did not consent to sex without a condom, police say. Police say she begged him to use a condom again, but he refused and forced sexual activity.

During his time at the woman’s house, Mr Gunathilaka allegedly choked and smacked her.

The woman was “frozen and in astonishment” when the cricketer asked for an Uber, authorities say. He left at 1am.

The next day, the woman woke up with sore and swollen lips and told two companions about the encounter, according to police. She also sought counseling and consulted her doctor after the alleged sexual assaults.

After media attorneys won an appeal, the Sri Lankan’s claimed attacks were released.

Police said she couldn’t work because she “couldn’t stop weeping.”

Mr. Gunathilaka hasn’t pleaded. He was apprehended outside the Hyatt Regency on November 6 as his crew left Australia.

Mr Gunathilaka will return to court on Thursday to examine his release restrictions.

He’ll appeal to the Supreme Court next month after being denied bail on November 7.

Summary of Today’s Cricket/Sports News

Overall, the franchises’ retention lists for 2023 have been finalized, and an auction is scheduled for December. Many players, including Hales and Jordan, have recently been released by the Kolkata Knight Riders and the Chennai Super Kings. The Mumbai Indians have released Tymal Mills because he did not play for them in the World Cup. The Gujrat Titans and the Punjab Kings have also released Jason Roy and Benny Howell, respectively, so they must now find new teams.

On the other hand, when a team wins a game, people tend to think about it. England’s win at the T20 World Cup has been the same. Greatness. At least, that’s the goal. Since Ben Stokes hit the winning run at the MCG, both head coach Mott and managing director Key are happy enough to talk in these terms. “If they keep winning trophies, they could be one of the best we’ve seen—certainly one of the best cricket teams and one of England’s best sports teams,” Key said. By winning two world titles, England may have already shown that they are one of the best limited-overs teams in the game’s history.

Finally, Danushka Gunathilaka, a Sri Lankan cricketer, has returned to court a day before he requests a review of his bail restrictions. The 31-year-old is imprisoned on remand after being charged with four charges of unconsented sexual contact. Wednesday, he was excused from the Sydney Downing Centre Local Court after the court was informed of a subpoena to seek digital evidence from a government agency. After the Local Court denied his bail application on November 7, he would appeal to the Supreme Court the following month.
