The 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) is fast approaching, and there has been no shortage of drama in the le ad-up to the tournament.

Player replacements have been all too common of late, with the current climate far from ideal due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All 8 teams are locked up in bio-bubbles in the UAE, with most of them away from family and having already served a week of total isolation.

Understandably, due to this and due to other personal reasons, 7 players have withdrawn from IPL 2020. Here are the names of these players, their salaries, their replacements, and the impact that their absence will have on their respective teams.


#7 Suresh Raina - Chennai Super Kings

CSK vice-captain Suresh Raina shocked everyone by pulling out of IPL 2020. The southpaw headed back home citing personal reasons although he has since opened up about his decision, citing a fear for the welfare of his family.

"I have a young family back home and I was concerned about the fact that if something happened to me, unka kya hoga? (what'll happen to them)."
"My family is most important to me and I am really concerned for them during these times. I haven't seen my kids for more than 20 days, even after coming back, since I am in quarantine."

Raina's family in Punjab were also the victims of a brutal attack by robbers, and he may not have been in the right frame of mind to play in IPL 2020. The 33-year-old was bought back by CSK upon their return to the IPL in 2018 for a whopping amount of 11 crores.

CSK are yet to announce a replacement for Raina, and there have even been rumours floating around that he could make a comeback to the squad in the UAE. His absence will greatly hurt MS Dhoni's men, who are now without a No. 3 batsman and an off-spinner. Either Murali Vijay or Ruturaj Gaikwad is expected to replace him in the playing XI.
