Chennai Super Kings announced on Friday that they would be retaining Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Suresh Raina and West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo for the seventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) T20 league.

The IPL franchise made the announcement at midnight on the microblogging website Twitter.

Earlier, it was reported that Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings are the two teams that have the biggest fan base all over India and have had a core set of players that has remained pretty much the same over the years.

As far as Chennai is concerned, skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni will be retained along with Ravindra JadejaRavichandran Ashwin and Suresh Raina — all India regulars. The choice of foreign player will be between West Indies’ Dwayne Bravo and South Africa’s Faf du Plessis, PTI reported earlier on Thursday.

Dhoni’s fascination for seam-bowling all-rounders is widely documented and Bravo certainly will hold an edge over his South African rival, who has also caught the imagination with his big-hitting prowess.
