If there is no retention before the player auction then franchises can choose three players through RTM. This gives CSK the chance to get their skipper MS Dhoni back in action for the 2018 season of IPL.

The salary cap for the uncapped players have also been increased by the council.

If the franchises retain any uncapped player, they will be deducted just 3 Crores INR per player from their auction purse instead of the above-mentioned price. Irrespective of player retention or RTM, a franchise can have a maximum of three capped Indian players, a maximum of two foreign players and a maximum of two uncapped Indian players. Dhoni's expected return to Chennai was much debated and so much so, the former India captain, who had led CSK to two IPL (six finals), two Champions League titles, had reportedly stated recently that he would either play for the Chennai side or not take part at all.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) governing council has made a decision to raise the salary cap for the eight franchises for next year's edition to Rs 80 crore from the previous cap of Rs 66 crore.

This covers anything from location data to crash reports, which often include a list of apps the user has installed. On its blog post, Google said, "These requirements apply to apps in Google Play and non-Play app markets".

With Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals returning to the fold after serving two-year suspensions, the GC also decided that the two franchises can retain or exercise the RTM options from a pool of players "who played for them respectively in IPL 2015 and who were part of RPS (Rising Pune Supergiant) and GL (Gujarat Lions) squads in IPL 2017".

The Governing Council meeting was attended by the members of the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA).

When news filtered in on Wednesday on IPL player retention, there was relief and joy in the Chennai Super Kings camp. "Thirteen players are there (from the 2015 squad), so we are fine with it", he quoted.

"The minimum spend will be 75 per cent of the salary cap for each season", the statement read. I think retention is there for brand continuity and the teams also are associated with the players that identify with them. It will grow by Rs 2 crore and Rs 3 crore for the next two editions respectively. "So it's fair", Delhi Daredevils CEO Hemant Dua told this paper.
