#1 Harbhajan Singh (Mumbai Indians - 2008-17, CSK - 2018-present)
Harbhajan Singh was associated with the Mumbai Indians ever since the Indian Premier League's inception. The Turbanator donned the Mumbai Indians jersey in 136 matches and took 127 wickets for the franchise in the 10 years he played for them. His phenomenal off-spin bowling and big hitting down the order helped the Mumbai side win several matches but the Mukesh Ambani owned franchise decided to release him ahead of the 2018 IPL auction.
In the 2018 IPL auction, Chennai Super Kings bought the Punjab off-spinner for his base price of Rs 2 crore. In the 13 matches he played for CSK last year, he was able to pick 7 wickets and he has been retained by the franchise for the upcoming season as well.
