As expected Dwayne Bravo has been retained by Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the big IPL player auction 2018. Bravo was acquired by CSK after they exercised RTM over Kings XI Punjab s (KXIP) bid of INR 6.4 crore. Bravo played for Gujarat Lion in the last two editions. Bravo reunties with the likes of MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja and Suresh Raina, who all form the core unit of CSK over the past 10 years.

A total of 578 players including 360 Indians will be available in this year s IPL auction that is being held at Bengaluru today and tomorrow. After 10 successful IPL editions, the teams will look forward to build their core once again. Expect a huge bidding war. Each team were given options to retain five players.

After a two-year exile, CSK and Rajasthan Royals RR are back in the fray.
