  • MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina are set to return to Chennai Super Kings

The IPL Governing Council (GC) took the decisions at a meeting in New Delhi on Wednesday.

Effectively, the governing council enabled Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals - the franchises that will be back from 2018 after serving a two-year suspension - to retain players who were in their squads in IPL 2015.

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. 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.

However, Rising Pune Supergiants and Gujarat Lions will not feature in the 11th edition of the tournament.

Salary budgets for IPL teams have also been hiked to Rs 80 crore from Rs 66 crore for the 2018 season.

An IPL franchise is eligible to secure up to 5 players by virtue of a combination of player retention (pre player auction) and Right to Match (during the auction), BCCI secretary Amitabh Chaudhary said in a statement. "We focused on continuity", he said, adding that a two-year hiatus won't make things hard for them as they would be getting "the core of the team back". If a player (X), who played for team (Y) in the previous season, is acquired by another team (Z) in the auction, Y can use their RTM card and get X for the same amount of money for which Z bought him.

The teams will be allowed to buy back five players with options of two retentions and three Right to Match or three retentions and two Right to Match. The teams can also have a maximum of two foreign players which means CSK can choose two among three - Faf du Plessis, Dwayne Bravo and Brandon McCullum. We were gunning for RTMs, so we got three RTMs and we are happy about that. 3 Maximum number of 2 Uncapped Indian players. Teams will have to spend a minimum of 75% of the salary cap for each season, the council said. However, the other three price slabs (Rs 1 crore, 1.5 crore and 2 crore) remain the same.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had asked franchises as to how many players they would like to retain.
