ChennaiSuper Kings will have the option to retain former captain MS Dhoni when the IPL is held in 2018. The IPL governing council has allowed teams to retain up to five players. CSK were banned from the IPL for two years due to corruption. MS Dhoni

In a decision that could see the return of Mahendra Singh Dhoni as the skipper of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and some of its top players, the IPL Governing Council has allowed the returning franchises CSK and Rajasthan Royals to secure the players who represented them in the 2015 edition and were part of Rising Pune Supergiant and Gujarat Lions squads in 2017. According to the new player retention policy, a franchise can retain upto five players using a combination of Player Retention (Pre-Player Auction) and Right to Match (RTM).

The total purse of each team will range from Rs 66 to 80 crores.

The players of CSK and RR were shifted to new franchises, Rising Pune Supergiants and Gujarat Lions. (On MS Dhoni coming back to CSK as captain) Obvious, yes. It will increase further to INR 82 crore in 2019, and to INR 85 crore in 2020. Interestingly, the GC chose to let the teams retain a maximum of 3 capped Indian cricketers.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) is going to be an even bigger juggernaut next year as the eight franchises will end up spending anywhere between Rs 480-640 crore on players alone.

The IPL Governing Council had allowed a maximum of either three retentions or three Right To Match (RTM) at the discretion of the franchises. A right-to-match card gives the franchise the ability to buy back its player during the auction by matching the highest bid made for the player by another franchise, once the bidding is over.

Senators urge FCC to delay net neutrality vote
Twenty-seven Senators are urging the Federal Communications Commission to postpone its vote on repealing net neutrality rules. The Attorney General's Office has been investigating the cases for six months.

A franchise can secure a maximum of three capped Indian players and a maximum of two overseas players.

Minimum expenditure: 75 percent of the salary cap for each season. If only one player is retained, then he will cost the franchise INR 12.5 crore from the salary cap.

The auction reserve prices have also been increased, with a hike of Rs 10 lakh in the prices for uncapped players, which will now begin from Rs 20, 30 or 40 lakh. The team also played in the IPL final in 2008, 2012, 2013 and 2015.

On the Rs 550 crore compensation that the court has asked the BCCI to pay to the defunct Kochi Tuskers, Shukla said the matter will be tabled in the SGM here on December 11.
