According to IPL retention rules, a franchise can retain a maximum of five players. However, Daredevils have decided to pick the players in the auction to be held on February 12.
Today was the last day to announce players' retention by all teams.
There were reports of Kevin Pietersen and David Warner being retained but those turned to be not true.
Daredevils had a poor season last year. They will be hoping for better results this time.
