Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals, the two franchises returning from a two-year suspension, will be able to retain players from among those who were in their squads in 2015, and from the list of their players who represented Rising Pune Super Giant and Gujarat Lions in 2017. Governing Council has cleared up the issue and therefore Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals will be retained for the upcoming IPL season.

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.

This decision has been taken during the IPL Governing Council's meeting with the Committee of Administrators (CoA), which was held in Delhi, today. Each franchise team will have a maximum of 25 players (up to eight foreign) and a minimum of 18 players.

A maximum of either three retentions or three RTM at the discretion of the franchises has been allowed. The other two replacement teams were formed Rising Pune Supergiants where Dhoni captaining in 2016 IPL season and Gujarat Lions for the replacement of Rajasthan Royals.

The decision enables former Indian captain MS Dhoni to return to the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) franchise from the 2018 season without being placed in the auction pool.

If a team does not wish to retain any player, it will still have the option of three Right to Match.

The retention policy also explained the number of players who can be retained depending on their capped or uncapped status.

Meanwhile, the salary cap for teams for the 2018 edition is Rs. 80 crore. For Dhoni and CSK fans, it means that MSD will don the yellow jersey once again.

- Maximum of two Overseas players. 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.

In the subsequent years, the franchises will be allowed to shell out Rs 82 crore (in 2019) and Rs 85 crore (in 2020).

"The minimum spend will be 75 per cent of the salary cap for each season", BCCI Acting Secretary Amitabh Choudhary said in a statement after the meeting. The player auction is scheduled for February next year.
