This means that the Chennai Super Kings will have option to retain three from their old pool of Indian players Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin. According to insiders, the new guidelines come as a set back for Mumbai Indians, who wanted a rule to make every team retain as many as nine from the existing squad. Apart from this, any team will also have the liberty to retain two uncapped Indian players but at a higher price. In stead of the existing Rs 10, 20 and 30 lakh respectively for uncapped players, each category will now see an increase of Rs 10 lakh. The minimum base price for capped Indian players has also been increased from Rs 30 lakh to Rs 50 lakh.
