Team with costliest buy has won IPL just once | Cricket News – Times of India

Every year, IPL franchises break the bank to bag the most sought-after players who they believe will make a difference to their fortunes. But teams who get the most expensive player of the auction might want to pause before uncorking the bubbly.With the sole exception of 2013, when Mumbai Indians got Glenn Maxwell for 1 million dollars, the team that bought the most expensive player in an auction has never won the IPL title the same year.But first, a caveat.

NEW DELHI: The new rule of having an 'Impact Player' during the upcoming IPL could just be the "second wind" that some of the veteran players require at the end of their careers, feel coaches and experts associated with various franchises.The 'Impact Player Rule' allows a team to have four such players named in a squad of 15 before the match and they can be substituted any time during a team's innings by the 14th over.However, that player has to be an Indian in case the playing XI has all four overseas players. Only if the playing XI has three overseas players, then an overseas player comes in place of another as 'Impact Substitute'.Call it a coincidence, but four veterans, 40-year-old Amit Mishra (166 wickets), 34-year olds Piyush Chawla (157 wickets), Mohit Sharma (92 wickets) and Ish...
