Dhoni was one of the four players retained by the four-time champions ahead of the mega auction next month.
CSK retained Ravindra Jadeja, Dhoni, Moeen Ali and Ruturaj Gaikwad.
While Jadeja was retained for Rs 16 crore, Dhoni was retained for Rs 12 crore. Meanwhile, Moeen and Ruturaj were retained for Rs 8 crore and Rs 6 crore, respectively.
Since they have already spent Rs 42 crore on retaining players, CSK will enter the auction with an overall purse of Rs 48 crore.
Dhoni, over the years, has played a key part in CSK's auction strategies, which has been a major reason behind their continued success in the cash-rich league.
CSK will look to defend their title in the upcoming IPL season, which will be played with 10 teams, following the addition of two new franchises -- Lucknow Super Giants and Ahmedabad.
