MS Dhoni eligible to play for Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2018

Indian Premiere League IPL

It's now safe to assume that Mahendra Singh Dhoni is already a Chennai Super Kings (CSK) player. Following a meeting in New Delhi, the Governing Council allowed CSK and Rajasthan Royals (RR) to retain the players who were on their 2015 list.

CSK and Rajasthan Royals (RR), who will be returning to the league after serving two-year suspensions, will be allowed to retain players who played for their respective squads in the 2015 IPL season and those who were part of now defunct teams Gujarat Lions and Rising Pune Supergiant. However, it was decided not more than three Indian and two foreign players can be retained by a franchise. The salary cap for uncapped players has also been increased. Super Giant and Lions are no longer part of the IPL because they were brought in as temporary replacements while Super Kings and Royals served their suspensions. The scandal led to the formation of the Lodha Committee, and the downfall of Srinivasan, if we may say, then the birth of committees like CoA.

Dhoni moved to Rising Pune Supergiant after CSK was banned for two years as the team's former principal Gurunath Meiyappan was found to be involved in betting activities related to the T20 league during the 2013 season.

In terms of squad size, the previous squad limit of 27 has been reduced to a maximum of 25 players, up to eight overseas, and a minimum of 18 players.

The IPL Governing Council had allowed a maximum of either three retentions or three Right To Match (RTM) at the discretion of the franchises.

Considering the player auction will be a big one, the IPL has increased the salary cap significantly. For Dhoni and CSK fans, it means that MSD will don the yellow jersey once again.

Besides, the IPL Governing Council also increased the "Minimum Auction Reserve Price" for both the uncapped and capped players. If only two players are kept back prior to the auction, they will be docked Rs 12.5 crore for the first player and Rs 8.5 crore for the second (or actual amount, whichever is higher), and if only one player is retained, they will lose Rs 12.5 crore (or actual price, whichever is higher) from their Rs 80-crore purse. Besides, the IPL also got a windfall of 16,347.50 crore thanks to its media rights, bought by STAR India.
