Both MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja has been retained by the Chennai based franchise ahead of the IPL 2022 Mega Auction, with Jadeja retained as the 1st slot player, means he will earn 16 crore, while MS Dhoni, on his demand, has been retained as the 2nd slot retention and will be earning 12 crore. Other than them, they have also retained English all-rounder Moeen Ali and young Indian opener Ruturaj Gaikwad.
