Since the inception of the Indian Premier League (IPL) back in 2008, two teams, Mumbai Indians (MI) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have dominated the proceedings. MI, led by Rohit Sharma, is the most successful team in the tournament’s history with four championship wins in twelve seasons. Behind them are last year’s runners-up, CSK, who have won three IPL trophies.
Given how much success the two teams have achieved in the competition, it is the dream of every budding player to become a part of either Mumbai Indians or Chennai Super Kings once in their careers. While not everyone has been able to fulfill this dream, there have been a few lucky players who have not only been a part of both the sides but they have also won the IPL with them.
Here’s a look at that the top 5 players who won the IPL title with both MI and CSK:
1. Ambati Rayudu (MI – 2013, 2015 and 2017, CSK – 2018)
Ambati Rayudu played in the rebel Indian Cricket League (ICL) before Mumbai Indians signed him in IPL 2010. The right-handed batsman from the southern part of the nation stayed with the Mumbai-based franchise for eight years. He won three titles with them however, his performances dipped as the seasons passed.
Rayudu featured in all 19 matches for Mumbai in 2013, scoring 265 runs with his average being 18.92. His performance improved a bit in 2015 as he ended the season with 281 runs in 15 games. In 2017, Mumbai included him in only 5 games where he scored 91 runs.
But, his fortunes changed once he joined the MS Dhoni-led as he played a very important role in his team’s journey to the title in 2018. Rayudu scored 602 runs in 16 matches for Chennai and he even registered his first IPL hundred that year.
