The two-year ban on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is officially over, and the fans and officials are excited to see their team return to the Indian Premier League (IPL) fold. The most popular IPL franchise, that was sentenced to a two-year ban by the Supreme Court in 2015 along with Rajasthan Royals, will be back while Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) and Gujarat Lions (GL) will no more exist. IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla said: “It is my privilege to welcome back Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals, into the 11th edition of the IPL.

In the latest report, CSK has confirmed that the franchise is keen to retain ‘Captain Cool’ MS Dhoni for the next season and also want the same core staff with Stephen Fleming as the coach. “If we are given an option of retaining a player, it will definitely be Dhoni. We haven’t yet discussed with Dhoni as his contract with Pune Supergiant ends later this year. However, we will speak to him in the future”, George John, one of the directors of Chennai Super Kings said on Friday.

Former New Zealand captain Stephen Fleming was the head coach, while Andy Bichel (bowling coach) and Steve Rixon (fielding coach) were part of the support staff when the team was banned in 2015. As George John said that they will try to retain original staff, it is clear that they will now contact Fleming and Bichel for the job.
