It is always difficult to release players, and I want to say a big thank you to all of them - you will always be part of the Super Giants family and we wish you all the best going forward."

With a well-balanced line-up, LSG will be looking at strategic buys in the upcoming auction to complete a squad that will challenge for the title in the seasons to come.
