At the same time, Dhoni has been retained for Rs 12 crore.
In addition to Jadeja and Dhoni, the franchise has also retained star opener Rituraj Gaikwad and England all-rounder Moeen Ali. Gaikwad has been retained for Rs 6 crore and Moeen Ali for Rs 8 crore. Let us tell you that Gaikwad played an important role in the team’s title win in the last season. With this, the team of four-time champion Super Kings has decided its four players.
Sunrisers Hyderabad retained these players
While, Sunrisers Hyderabad has retained three players. These players are captain Kane Williamson, fast bowlers Umran Malik and Abdul Samad. Williamson has been retained for Rs 14 crore, Malik and Samad for Rs 4 crore each. Sunrisers, who were in the news for the wrong reasons due to differences with former captain David Warner last season, were set to retain Kane Williamson. But the shocking decision is that the franchise did not retain Rashid Khan. The team has reposed faith in young players like Malik and Samad. Samad is known for his explosive batting while Umran Malik is famous for his fast bowling. In the last season of the IPL, he bowled at a speed of 150 kmph several times.
