IPL: CSK, RR allowed to retain players

MS Dhoni of CSK

The salary cap for each team has been increased from Rs 66 crore to Rs 80 crore for the 2018 season, while Rs 82 crore and Rs 85 crore are allotted per side for the next two years. At least 75 percent of the salary cap will have to be spent during each season. CSK and Rajasthan Royals were suspended owing to the 2013 spot-fixing scandal, which shook the league to its core and allegedly involved not just players but also some top officials of the two franchises.

In case of uncapped players, the salary cap will be Rs 3 crore per player. Recently, as per the quotes in Sportskeeda, the team Director of CSK confirmed that they are not looking beyond MS Dhoni when it comes to naming their captain. 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 decision was taken during the IPL Governing Council's meeting with the Committee of Administrators (CoA) here.

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.

However, security forces used force to disperse the demonstrators who were pelting stones and attempting to enter the area. The militants fired at the patrol team in Qazigund area which has been cordoned off for searches, the officer said.

For 2019 and 2020, the cap will be increased to ₹82 and ₹85 crore respectively.

"An IPL Franchise is eligible to secure up to five players by virtue of a combination of (Pre Player Auction) and (During the Player Auction)", BCCI Acting Secretary Amitabh Choudhary said. "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.

If there is no retention before the player auction then franchises can choose three players through RTM.

The permitted squad size has also been decreased by two and now teams can have a maximum of 25 players in the squad including a maximum of eight overseas players and the minimum squad size will be 18 players. This is a departure from existing price tags, which saw the first retained player receive INR 12.5 crores with subsequent retainees costing the franchise 9.5, 7.5, 5.5 and 4 crores respectively.
