The Pro Kabaddi 2023 retained players list was announced earlier today (August 7) by the 12 PKL franchises. Some big names like Pawan Sehrawat, Vikash Khandola, Surjeet Singh, Siddharth Desai, Abhishek Singh, Maninder Singh, Fazel Atrachali, and Mohammad Nabibakhsh are missing from the list of retained players.

The Pro Kabaddi 2023 auction will take place next month on September 8 and 9. Ahead of the auction, the organizers asked every franchise to submit their list of retained players.

Following that, the PKL organizers declared the list of retained players via a media release today. Speaking about the retention list, Anupam Goswami, Head Sports Leagues, Mashal Sports and League Commissioner, Pro Kabaddi League said:

"With an exceptional core group of players retained across all teams, Pro Kabaddi League Season 10 already promises to be a great contest.
"At the same time, the Pro Kabaddi Season X Player Auction too promises to be an absolutely riveting affair, given the return of several talented athletes to the auction pool and the fact that some of the teams will use this opportunity to rebuild and strengthen their squads," he added.
