It can be done through a combination of player retention before the auction and the use of Right-To-Match (RTM) cards during the auction. It paved the way for MS Dhoni's return to CSK.

That means a franchise not opting to directly retain any player will still be allowed only a maximum of three RTMs at the player auction.

For 2019 and 2020, the cap will be increased to ₹82 and ₹85 crore respectively.
