Chennai Super Kings confirm MS Dhoni as their captain for IPL 2018

The teams will be allowed to buy back five players with options of two retentions and three Right to Match or three retentions and two Right to Match. For Dhoni and CSK fans, it means that MSD will don the yellow jersey once again.

The IPL governing council has confirmed a number of details about the big player auction that will take place ahead of the 2018 edition of the tournament. If there is no retention before player auction then franchises can have up to 3 RTM.

The permitted squad size has also been decreased by two and now teams can have a maximum of 25 players in the squad including a maximum of eight overseas players and the minimum squad size will be 18 players.

Over the past seven games, he has gained 1,134 yards from scrimmage - rushing and receiving - and scored 14 touchdowns. She stated she was "not feeling like I could say anything, and trying to get away from him to put clothes on".

The IPL Governing Council hiked the salary budget of the franchises from ₹66 crore to ₹80 crore for next year's auction, tentatively set for February.

The meeting was chaired by IPL Chairman Rajeev Shukla and attended by Supreme Court of India-appointed Committee of Administrators. The uncapped players in the lowest category will be valued at INR 20 lakhs, rising up to 30 and 40 lakhs in the two other categories. The two returning franchises, Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals, will be able to retain up to five players who played for them in the 2015 edition, under the condition that they turned out for one of Rising Pune Supergiant or Gujarat Lions, the franchises that replaced Super Kings and Royals. If a player (X), who played for team (Y) in the previous season, is acquired by another team (Z) in the auction, Y can use their RTM card and get X for the same amount of money for which Z bought him. "We are happy with this". I think retention is there for brand continuity and the teams also are associated with the players that identify with them. However, the other three price slabs (Rs 1 crore, 1.5 crore and 2 crore) remain the same. "So it's fair", Delhi Daredevils CEO Hemant Dua told this paper. The salary cap for each team for the 2018 season has been set at Rs 80 crore (approximately $12.4 million) by the governing council. Retaining just one player pre-auction would see a franchise lose Rs 12.5 crore from its purse.
