New Delhi: MS Dhoni's rumoured comeback to Indian Premier League franchisee might soon turn true. After the IPL Governing Council (GC) meeting was held on Wednesday by the BCCI, the eight teams could now retain as much as five players.

Options are available. Teams could opt for two retentions and three Right to Match or three retentions and two Right to Match. However in the meeting it was discussed that teams could retain not more than than three Indian and two foreign players.

"An IPL Franchise is eligible to secure up to 5 players by virtue of a combination of Player Retention (Pre Player Auction) and Right to Match (RTM) (During the Player Auction)," BCCI Acting Secretary Amitabh Choudhary said in a statement after the meeting.

"The player pool available for CSK and RR for retention/RTM will be the players' who played for them respectively in IPL 2015 and who were part of RPS and Gujarat Lions squads in IPL 2017," he added.

The GC will send the options to the franchise, who will make a final decision before the 2018 auction commences. The meeting, that was also held by the Committee of Administrators (CoA) also discussed the budget each franchisee will hold.
