Mumbai Indians (MI) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are two of the most successful teams in the history of the IPL. MI have won four IPL titles which is the most by any team. On the other hand, CSK have three as well and they have even played a couple of seasons less than MI.

Moreover, the two teams have built quite a bit of rivalry as the IPL has progressed. MI have the edge as they’ve won 17 out of the 28 encounters. Moreover, three out of the four titles that they’ve won, CSK have been in the final.

In fact, there have been times when players released from one team have been picked up by the other. Thus, here are five players who have gone from CSK to MI over the years in the IPL.

Parthiv Patel has played for as many as six teams in the 12 seasons of the IPL. One of the main reasons has been his inconsistency. He has scored more than 300 runs in a season only four times and has an overall average of 22.60 in the IPL.

Patel was with Chennai Super Kings (CSK) for the first three seasons. The Gujarat wicket-keeper played 13 games in the opening season before playing only 13 more across the next two editions. It was largely due to the presence of MS Dhoni and also, top-order batsmen doing well that Patel didn’t get consistent opportunities. The left-hander scored 516 runs at an average of 21.50 for CSK.

In the next four years, he played for four different teams before Mumbai Indians (MI) picked him up in 2015. For three years, Patel was a regular member of the MI side. He’s played 40 games for them which is the most for him for any franchise and in those, he has amassed 911 runs. However, he was released after the 2017 edition and is now with the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
