A decision was reached at the Indian Premier League Governing Council (GC) meeting in Delhi on Wednesday to let franchises retain five players through a combination of direct retention and the 'right to match (RTM)' formula.

For Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals, the franchises returning to the fold after their two-year suspensions, the GC announced that: "The player pool available for CSK and RR for retention/RTM will be the players' who played for them respectively in IPL 2015 and who were part of RPS and GL squads in IPL 2017". The other two replacement teams were formed Rising Pune Supergiants where Dhoni captaining in 2016 IPL season and Gujarat Lions for the replacement of Rajasthan Royals. The uncapped players in the lowest category will be valued at INR 20 lakhs, rising up to 30 and 40 lakhs in the two other categories.

As player retention price guideline, if a franchise retains three players the price cap of the first player retained will be Rs 15 crore, Rs 11 crore in case of the second player and Rs 7 crore in case of the third player.

RTM refers to a franchise's right to match the highest bidder for a player.

In the subsequent years, they can spend Rs 82 crore (in 2019) and Rs 85 crore (in 2020). If a player (X), who played for team (Y) in the previous season, is acquired by another team (Z) in the auction, Y can use their RTM card and get X for the same amount of money for which Z bought him. The BCCI has eliminated the "soft cap" concept wherein teams were previously permitted to have private deal with players on their fee.

He further said that the auction will be held in the last week of January or early February. Interestingly, the GC chose to let the teams retain a maximum of 3 capped Indian cricketers. However in the meeting it was discussed that teams could retain not more than than three Indian and two foreign players. So we are fine with that.

If two players are retained, the salary cap for the first and second player retained will Rs 12.5 crore and Rs 8.5 crore respectively.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had asked franchises as to how many players they would like to retain.
