MS Dhoni has opened up on the possibility of playing in IPL next year: “There are a lot of uncertainties around it for the simple reason that we have two new teams coming up. We don’t know the retention policy. We don’t know how many foreigners, Indian players we can retain, the money cap that every player will be cutting from the kitty. So there are a lot of uncertainties. Unless the rules are in place you can’t really decide that. So we will wait for it to happen and hopefully, it will be good for everyone.”
