As Virat Kohli was retained by Royal Challengers Bangalore, he was not a part of the auction. He will be paid Rs. 17 crore by RCB to play in the 2018 season. He is the only player to be retained at a higher amount than what was set by IPL (Rs. 15 crore). Apart from him, RCB retained AB de Villiers and Sarfaraz Khan.

MS Dhoni was not a part of IPL 2018 auctions, as CSK had decided to retain him before the auctions. As per the new IPL rules, since CSK retained 3 players they paid Rs. 15 crore for MS Dhoni, Rs. 11 crore for Suresh Raina and Rs. 7 crore for Ravindra Jadeja. Overall, Rs. 33 crore was deducted from the purse of CSK.
