IPL’s most consistent team, Chennai Super Kings, have decided to retain the core of their team with their talismanic skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the swashbuckling Suresh Raina, Ravinchandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, and West Indian all-rounder Dwayne Bravo expected to take the field for the men in yellow for the next three seasons of the glamorous Indian Premier League.

This is the second time that the team from Chennai have made full use of the retention-policy, having retained four players before the fourth edition of the IPL, which was the maximum limit at that time. MS Dhoni and Raina were also retained even back then.

CSK have been the most dominant team in the IPL, having reached five out of six finals and won on two occasions.

Having retained five of their stars, the franchise will have the option of using their only remaining “right-to-match” card to buy back Faf de Plessis or Mike Hussey.

Here is the photo posted by CSK’s official twitter handle, confirming the retention of five of their best players.
