Chennai Super Kings have defended MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Dwayne Bravo forward of a IPL 2014 auction. The contest manners allow for 5 players to be retained, of whom usually 4 can be capped India players. This will leave a authorization with one right-to-match label during a auction on Feb 12.
Super Kings have been a many successful of a IPL franchises, creation a final 5 times out of six, and winning on dual occasions – in 2010 and 2011. In 2010, they did a double of winning a IPL and a Champions League T20. They have also been one of a many staid franchises, with a core of a group remaining a same over a seasons. So it comes as no warn that they have defended as many players as probable here.
Among a players staying with Super Kings, captain Dhoni, batsman Raina and offspinner Ashwin have never played for another IPL franchise. Dhoni, India’s captain and arguably a best finisher in limited-overs cricket, was a many costly buy of a initial IPL auction behind in 2008. Raina, a tournament’s heading run-getter overall, is nonetheless to skip a singular compare for Super Kings. Ashwin has been one of many players who adds internal essence to a team, and until a recently-concluded array opposite South Africa, was India’s first-choice spinner.
On Boxing Day, in Durban, Ashwin – maybe temporarily – mislaid that pretension to Jadeja. Super Kings had bought allrounder Jadeja during a 2012 auction, profitable some-more than US$2 million for him after his behest went into a tip tie-breaker with a now-defunct Deccan Chargers. West Indies allrounder Bravo, who in 2013 set a new record for a most wickets in an IPL season, completes a list.
January 10 is a deadline for a IPL franchises to announce their list of defended players, forward of a auction on Feb 12. Aside from defended players, franchises can buy behind additional members of their squads during a auction around right-to-match cards. The series of right-to-match cards accessible to any authorization will count on a series of players already retained. Since Super Kings have defended 5 players, they will have one right-to-match label during a auction.
A bound volume will be deducted from Super Kings’ auction purse of Rs 600 million (approx. US$ 9.6 million, during a stream sell rate) for any actor retained: Rs 125 million for actor one, Rs 95 million for actor two, Rs 75 million for actor three, Rs 55 million for actor 4 and Rs 40 million for actor five. That will leave a authorization with Rs 210 million to spend during a auction. This season, any patrol contingency embody no reduction than 16 and no some-more than 27 players, with a limit of 9 abroad players.
The volume deducted from a auction purse is not indispensably a IPL price concluded to between a authorization and a defended player.
In 2011, detached from Dhoni and Raina, Super Kings had defended India batsman M Vijay and South Africa allrounder Albie Morkel. The span missed out this time, along with former Australia batsman Michael Hussey, who was IPL 2013’s leading run-getter.
