10. Yuzvendra Chahal (MI)
Chahal playing his single IPL game in the blue and gold jersey, made his IPL debut in the 2013 season .Maybe the MI management just like RCB could have fetched Chahal again at his base price
9. Shikhar Dhawan (SRH)
Shikhar Dhawan had played for the SRH team till the year 2018. Before the 2019 IPL, Dhawan was again back playing for his home franchise wherein he has also now completely reinvigorated his T20 batting form.
8. Suryakumar Yadav (KKR)
SKY just average around 23 during his stint with the KKR. While the KKR franchise didn’t bag him in the 2018 mega auction, the MI franchise had gone all in to bag their local boy for an impressive amount of INR 3.2 Crore.
7. Jos Buttler (MI)
The MI team in IPL 2016 had signed the wicket-keeper batsman for an amount of INR 3.8 Crore but the cricketer was then released before the 2018 mega auction
6. Andre Russell (DD)
While the DD franchise hardly made Russell play a total of 7 games in both the IPL seasons. The DD franchise eventually letting go of Russell in the 2014 IPL, the KKR team bagged the all-rounder amount of INR 60 Lakh. Since then, Andre Russell has dwelled himself as one of the iconic players of the KKR franchise.
5. Shane Watson (RCB)
Watson was given an alien role of batting in the middle-order that eventually had just made him average around 13 in IPL 2016. However, with the yellow army then making a vigorous comeback in the IPL 2018, the Aussie all-rounder was immediately signed for INR 4 Crore which in many ways also turned to be a fruitful affair for CSK.
4. KL Rahul (RCB)
KL Rahul had initially started his IPL career with his home team (RCB) in 2013, then moved to SRH in 2014 and returned to RCB in 2016. The horrific 2017 season had influenced the RCB franchise to even discard KL Rahul before the 2018 mega auction. But since, KL Rahul joined PBKS, the batsman has been on another level.
3. Chris Gayle (KKR)
The KKR management omitted Gayle from the squad before the 2011 mega auction. But, this one decision proved to be a regret for them as The Universe Boss came back strong to be one of the best batsmen in the IPL.
2. David Warner (DD)
Unfortunately in the mega auction of 2014, the DD team had left David Warner that eventually then started his soaring run with the SRH franchise. His release from the DD team has definitely been one of the worst blunders performed by any IPL franchise.
1. AB de Villiers (DD)
De Villiers was made to exit before the 2011 mega auction. And as the rest is history, the RCB franchise had immediately then bagged him for more than INR 5 Crores. Hence, while the DD franchise had an unparalleled opportunity to cast ABD at the helm, the RCB franchise on the other note has made him the finest all-time great of the game.
