Yesterday, Gautam Gambhir was not retained by KKR and now he is back in auction pool. Shah Rukh Khan co-owned franchise chose Sunil Narine and Andre Russell and leave their captain. Since then, the Internet is flooded with jokes and memes on Gambhir dumped by KKR.

Gambhir “Bhaiya thode udhar hona”
“Bhaisaab jagah nahi hai”

KKR not retaining Gambhir is a bit unfair. Why should SRK take out his anger of his movies getting flopped on Gambhir.. So silly!

Now, who is spreading this news? that Shahrukh Khan did not retain Gautam Gambhir in Kolkata Knight Riders because Gambhir supports the Indian Army very much?#IPLRetention

On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad picked David Warner and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Team mentor VVS Laxman said after the retention ceremony: “It was a great opportunity to retain some players. We want to pick impact players who can take the team forward. Warner and Bhuvaneshwar are impact players and impact is the right word for SRH.”
Delhi Daredevils retained Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer and Chris Morris. DD CEO Hemant Dua said: “Ricky Ponting has been appointed as head coach and we are going with the idea of having continuity. We have retained two youngsters and the whole team will be built around them. Chris Morris is a top all-rounder.”
