IPL 2018: MS Dhoni all set to lead Chennai Super Kings?

The Indian Premier League (IPL) governing council has chose to raise the salary cap for the eight franchises for next year's edition to Rs 80 crore from the previous cap of Rs 66 crore. At least 75 percent of the salary cap will have to be spent during each season.

Due to IPL spot-fixing controversy, the teams Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals were suspended for two years 2016 and 2017 after the Lodha Committee's verdict.

According to report by the Indian Express, one franchise was reportedly in favour of retaining as many as five players, while another proposed retention of one player per team.

YouTube said Monday that it is also taking steps to try to reassure advertisers that their ads won't run next to gross videos. She said this in turn was helping to train its machine learning technology to identify similar videos in the future.

In the subsequent years, they can spend Rs 82 crore (in 2019) and Rs 85 crore (in 2020).

Which means that CSK fans can expect to see MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina return to the team's ranks for IPL 2018. The teams will also be able to pick cricketers who played for Gujarat Lions (GL) and Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) in the last two IPL editions.

Meanwhile, on the player retention policy, teams have been allowed to secure a maximum of five players through a combination of pre-auction retention and Right to Match (RTM) cards.

The IPL Governing Council, in its meeting in New Delhi on Wednesday, has upped the player cap for the next three years. The salary cap for uncapped players has also been increased.

"The player pool available for CSK and RR for retention/RTM will be those who played for them in IPL 2015 and who were part of the Rising Pune Super Giant and Gujarat Lions squads in 2017", he added.

So, if a franchise does not to directly retain any player, it will be allowed a maximum of three RTMs at the auctions. Governing Council has cleared up the issue and therefore Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals will be retained for the upcoming IPL season.

Uncapped players stand to receive more at the auction with each segment receiving a INR 10 lakh boost. Interestingly, the GC chose to let the teams retain a maximum of 3 capped Indian cricketers. CSK and RR have the allowance to retain players from among those who played for them in the 2015 season and it is nearly certain that Dhoni will be back in CSK colours in the next season.
