Among other top Indians who are nearly certain to be retained are Rohit Sharma, who led Mumbai Indians to their title triumph last season, exciting MI all-rounder Hardik Pandya, Suresh Raina and Ravindra Jadeja, who are set to go back to CSK after playing for Gujarat Lions over the last two seasons, and Australian batting dynamo David Warner for Sunrisers Hyderabad.

There is no official update yet on the MS Dhoni's presence in the Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

CSK Director George John previously discussed that there was no way that the management would let of two experienced campaigners - Dhoni and Raina.

"That's an obvious one".

The IPL Player Retention will take place on January 4, 2018, in Mumbai.

Some retentions are pretty much no-brainers, such as three-time IPL-winning captain Rohit Sharma by Mumbai Indians, Virat Kohli by Royal Challengers Bangalore and Dhoni by Chennai.

A franchise can retain a maximum of three capped Indian players, two overseas players, and two uncapped Indian players. However, the franchise is yet to name the third player. Once the deadline is set, we will finalise the list. That's what he also said during the TNPL. Also, if a player is not satisfied with the price being quoted by his franchises, he could opt to be a part of the auction pool which could see him get a huge price. "Last season, I think he averaged around 40", he explained.

This time, every team have a chance of retaining three players in maximum.

Another franchise making a return after serving a two-year suspension, Rajasthan Royals is expected to retain Australia captain Steve Smith, considering the form he has been in.

Right to match or RTM basically gives a franchise the authority to match the highest bid for a player they didn't choose to retain pre-auction, and acquire his services again.
