The IPL Governing Council and the Committee of Administrators (CoA) met in New Delhi on Wednesday to discuss IPL Player retention policy, salary cap, player regulations and other related issues. The guidelines state that both CSK and Rajasthan Royals (RR) can retain any player which played for them in IPL 2015 and were also a part of the squad of RPS and Gujarat Lions (GL) in IPL 2017.

During CSK's exile, Dhoni, who helped CSK to two IPL titles, turned up for the Pune-based franchise.

In the wake of the latest IPL GC meeting, it is likely that MS Dhoni will return for Chennai Super Kings.
