Many ace players were retained during the Indian Premier League Player Retention event by their former teams including MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya but the masses were shocked when Shah Rukh Khan's Kolkata Knight Riders' (KKR) did not retain their former skipper Gautam Gambhir.

The left-handed batsman has led the team to two IPL victories and has great potential in the batting field. His recent Ranji Trophy stint proved that the cricketer is yet to lose his hold on the game. While many teams would love to have him in their squad, Chennai Super Kings seem to have an upper hand.

However, there are higher chances that Kolkata uses their Right to Match (RTM) card to retain Gambhir, Chennai Super Kings fuelled speculations by posting a thinking emoji in reply to a fan's question asking if Dhoni's team will bid for Gautam.

The cryptic tweet has forced the IPL lovers into anticipating if the Delhi boy will leave KKR's side to join the yellow team.The fan's question read, "I Hv a strong feeling @GautamGambhir wil b picked by @ChennaiIPL in this auction."

Chennai has already retained the team's star players MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina and Ravindra Jadeja in the retention event and is looking forward to making a big bang comeback in the home series after serving a two-year ban following the fixing scandal.
