IPL governing council clears way for Dhoni's return to CSK

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

The IPL Governing Council also hiked the salary budget of the franchises from Rs 66 crore to Rs 80 crore for the next year's auction, tentatively set for February. The purse will increase to Rs 82 crore in 2018 and to Rs 85 crore for the 2020 edition.

"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.

Conyers is expected to make the announcement on a local radio show, the New York Times reported citing a relative. The fearless women who came forward are owed justice, ' Pelosi continued at a Capitol press conference.

Rajasthan Royals, however, had an extreme view in this regard as it didn't want "any retention" rule in order to get rid of "tainted players". If a franchise does not retain any player before the auction it can still retain only three using right-to-match cards.

"If you (any team) were to retain all five, you will also end up losing more than 50 percent of the purse". If there is no retention before player auction then the franchises can have up to three ATM. Why does the IPL Governing Council not announce such policies only a few weeks before the Players' Auction each season?

IPL franchises will be allowed to retain a maximum of five of their existing players through a combination of player retention before the 2018 auction and the use of right-to-match cards during the auction. The Governing Council also increased the reserve prices for players available in the auction. Previously, uncapped Indian players had base prices of INR 10, 20 and 30 lakhs respectively; now each of those slabs has been increased by INR 10 lakh. It will grow by Rs 2 crore and Rs 3 crore for the next two editions respectively. Between the announcement of the list of retained players and the IPL Players' Auction, the cricketers will be left living in hope that they get the best possible deal. Earlier, there was a blanket policy on the salary for the first players retained and those following him. If only one player has been retained, the salary cap will be Rs 12.5 crore.

"Kohli and Dhoni felt it wasn't right and BCCI should keep a salary cap on these uncapped players", a source in the BCCI informed, according to The Indian Express.
