MS Dhoni is all set to play for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 11 after the governing council on Wednesday allowed the franchises to retain five players each through Player Retention or through Right to Match. CSK and Rajasthan Royals (RR) have the allowance to retain players from among those who played for them in the 2015 season and it is almost certain that Dhoni will be back in CSK colours in the next season. Fans are delighted as they look forward to seeing the ‘Men in Yellow’ back at their den, the MA Chidambaram Stadium. CSK, one of the most successful franchises in IPL, is expected to have Dhoni, who played for Rising Pune Supergiant for two years, back as captain.
Fans are hoping that the franchise would be able to retain Suresh Raina, another CSK marquee, and Ravindra Jadeja to start with.
Meanwhile, CSK’s whole-time director K George John said it was wonderful news for the franchise and fans and hoped to have the core team back.
“We are very happy.. It has always been our wish to have the core team back and it will be wonderful for the fans, who have supported CSK all the while,” he said.
