MS Dhoni set to join CSK squad for IPL 2018 edition

MS Dhoni of CSK

Governing Council has cleared up the issue and therefore Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals will be retained for the upcoming IPL season. But if there is no retention before the player auction then the franchises can have up to three RTM.

"The minimum spend will be 75 per cent of the salary cap for each season", the statement read.

Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals were banned for two seasons from the Indian Premier League after some of their team owners were charged for corruption by the Supreme Court. The swashbuckling cricketer from Ranchi in Jharkhand has played in 159 IPL matches scoring 3,561 runs off 2,604 balls at an average of 37.88. "In a way, we have found a middle path (with the possibility of buying back five players through retentions and RTMs)", IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla said after the meeting. The move gathered steam when Harsh Goenka, brother of Rising Pune Supergiants owner Sanjeev Goenka, was trolled for hailing Pune captain Steve Smith at the expense of Dhoni.

The rules laid down for retention and/or RTM state - Maximum number of three capped Indian players; Maximum number of two overseas players; Maximum number of two uncapped Indian players.

Governor Cooper Proclaims Computer Science Education Week
The "Hour of Code", which coincides with Computer Science Week, takes place during the first week of December each year. Also this week the girls are encouraged to post what they're learning about on social media using #girlsintechkc.

An Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise can retain or secure through the Right to Match (RTM) clause a combined total of five players for the 2018 edition of the Twenty20 cricket tournament, it was announced on Wednesday. However, in case it chooses to retain two players, Rs 21 crore will be deducted (Rs 12.5 crore and Rs 8.5 crore), while for retaining just one player, Rs 12.5 crore will be deducted from the auction purse. The guideline is if a franchise retains three players it will have Rs 15 crore, Rs 11 crore and Rs 7 crore respectively deducted from its player purse of Rs 80 crores.

If the franchise retains one player: The cost of the player will be 12.5 crores INR.

Franchises will be permitted to have a maximum of 25 players (earlier 27) with a maximum of eight overseas players (earlier nine) in the squad. I think retention is there for brand continuity and the teams also are associated with the players that identify with them.
