The IPL Governing Council has also increased the salary cap to Rs. 800 million (Dh45.50 million) for the next year and Rs. 820 million and Rs. 850 million for the subsequent years.

Commenting on the fact that the team will get to pick the players from the 2015 IPL squad, the CSK director affirmed that they are not losing their head over it and are quite content with the rule.

Franchises will need to spend at least 75 per cent of the salary cap each season, and that each squad should contain between 18 and 25 players with maximum eight overseas players. This means decks have been cleared for Mahendra Singh Dhoni's return to CSK.

The players of CSK and RR were shifted to new franchises, Rising Pune Supergiants and Gujarat Lions. Dhoni's expected return to Chennai was much debated and so much so, the former India captain, who had led CSK to two IPL (six finals), two Champions League titles, had reportedly stated recently that he would either play for the Chennai side or not take part at all.
