The Indian Premier League (IPL) fever is set to grip the subcontinent in the coming months, but for now the IPL retention is there to keep the fans and pundits on the edge of their seats.
Ahead of the 11th edition of the IPL, the franchisees have been given an opportunity to retain a core of their previous squad members by either retaining a player, or using a Right to Match(RTM) card to buy the player during the auction. All other player would head into the auction to discover their fates.
The event has garnered a few more eyeballs due to the return of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals after being out of the IPL for 2 years due to a spot-fixing verdict against them. It would be interesting to see if CSK go ahead with retaining MS Dhoni.
