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.
