The Governing Council of Indian Premier League on Wednesday permitted the comeback for MS Dhoni in Chennai Super Kings team. The matches will be held next year.
After a discussion, IPL Governing Council permitted Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals team, which was also barred for suspected fixing in matches, to keep hold of the players which were on their 2015 list. The player last played in Rising Pune Supergiants (RPS) team.
“An IPL Franchise is qualified to get up to 5 players by good quality of a mixture of Player Retention (Pre Player Auction) and Right to Match (RTM) (During the Player Auction),” BCCI Acting Secretary Amitabh Choudhary stated.
Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals were excluded because of 2013 spot-fixing misconduct. It not only included players but also involved top representatives of the two teams.
The Governing Council also increased the salary budget of the teams from Rs 66 crore to Rs 80 crore for 2018’s sale slated for February.
“The smallest amount spend will be 75 per cent of the salary limit for every term,” the BCCI asserted.
