5 Indian players who have played for both Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians
- There have been 5 Indian players who have been lucky to be a part of the two most successful franchises in the history of the IPL.
#2 Ambati Rayudu (Mumbai Indians - 2010-17, CSK - 2018-present)
Ambati Rayudu made his IPL debut for the Mumbai Indians in the year 2010 and impressed one and all with his consistent batting performances. Rayudu aggregated 356 runs in his maiden season and was touted as the next big thing in Indian cricket.
His consistency led to his call-up to the national team but in the year 2016, Mumbai Indians did not include Rayudu in their first playing XI due to his dip in form. He was then released by them ahead of the 2018 IPL auction.
Chennai Super Kings picked up Rayudu in the auction and MS Dhoni promoted the right-handed batsman to the opening position, a move which changed his IPL career. 2018 was the best season of Rayudu's career and hence, he was retained by CSK for the upcoming IPL 2019.
