IPL player retention: Dhoni, Kohli, Rohit, ABD, stay with their franchises

IPL player retention: Dhoni, Kohli, Rohit, ABD, stay with their franchises

As expected, nearly all the franchises of the Indian Premier League (IPL) have retained their marquee players including Virat Kohli (Bangalore Royal Challengers), MS Dhoni (Chennai Super Kings) and Rohit Sharma (Mumbai Indians).

"Vanakkam Chennai! Good to be back to CSK after two years".

AB de Villiers is RCB's second retention while they have kept uncapped Sarfaraz Khan for Rs 3 crore while putting Chris Gayle back in the auction pool.

"It's really nice to have Hussey back with us in a coaching capacity since he has played for us and possesses a keen cricketing brain". With an aggregate of 2213 from 64 games at an average of 40.98, Hussey remains the third highest run-getter for Super Kings, behind Suresh Raina (4541) and MS Dhoni (3436).

A total of 18 players were retained by the eight franchises on Thursday.

"CSK is not just a team but an emotion and passion amongst millions, and through this partnership we are going to significantly enhance this spirit by enabling the CSK teams and its supporters stay connected", he said. KKR have opted to retain West Indian Sunil Narine and Andre Russell.

Mumbai Indians slotted back skipper Rohit Sharma, all-rounder Hardik Pandya and yorker specialist Jasprit Bumrah by spending Rs 15, 11 and 7 crores respectively for the three players.

18 players were retained by the 8 teams in the IPL 2018 player retentions.

Here's the list of players retained by using the Player Retention option. The last two years, our understanding was that from 11th season all players will be up for grabs.

An IPL franchise is eligible to secure up to five players by virtue of a combination of player retention (pre player auction) and Right to Match (during the auction), BCCI secretary Amitabh Chaudhary said in a statement. He was first part of the franchise from 2008 to 2013 before returning in 2015 following a season with the Mumbai Indians.

Meanwhile, Delhi Daredevils too spent Rs 33 crores to keep Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer and Chris Morris.
