IPL 2018: MS Dhoni set to reunite with Chennai Super Kings

The salary cap for each team for the 2018 season has been set at INR 80 crore (approximately $12.4 million) by the IPL governing council, which met in Delhi on Tuesday along with the Supreme Court-appointed committee of administrators.

BCCI Acting Secretary Amitabh Choudhary in a statement after the meeting said, "The player pool available for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) for retention/RTM will be the players' who played for them respectively in IPL 2015 and who were part of Rising Pune Supergiant and Gujarat Lions squads in IPL 2017".

The players of CSK and RR were shifted to new franchises, Rising Pune Supergiants and Gujarat Lions.

In the Indian Premier League T20 Tournament, Chennai Super Kings will lead by the former captain of India MS Dhoni with whom the team CSK has won IPL title for two teams. Recently, the IPL Governing Council announced the various rules regarding the player retention policies for the upcoming auctions.

"IPL governing council decided all teams can avail facility of retaining five players & Right to Match".

- Maximum of two Overseas players. The salary cap has also been increased for uncapped players.

CSK and Rajasthan Royals were suspended owing to the 2013 spot-fixing scandal, which shook the league to its core and allegedly involved not just players but also some top officials of the two franchises. But if there is no retention before the player auction then the franchises can have up to three RTM.

A maximum of either 3 retention or 3 RTM at the discretion of the franchises.

If a team does not wish to retain any player, it will still have the option of three Right to Match. To further explain the math, the first player to be retained pre-auction will get Rs 15 crore, the second player will get Rs 11 crore and and third Rs seven crore.

George also confirmed that they can only retain players who played for them in 2015.

For the auctions, the base price of players have been increased in both capped and uncapped categories. Rajasthan Royals wanted everyone to go back to the auction pool, the report said.

Minimum expenditure: 75 percent of the salary cap for each season.
