Now let’s take a look at some of their key players from last season who were bought by other teams.

1. Quinton de Kock – He was solid with both the bat and his wicket-keeping duties for MI since 2019. MI did bid for him till 5 crores but he was eventually sold to the new franchise Lucknow SuperGiants.

2. Hardik Pandya – IPL allowed only four retentions for a side in 2022 which meant MI couldn’t get to retain their star allrounder, Hardik Pandya. He was drafted in as the captain of the newly formed Gujarat Titans side.

3. Krunal Pandya – He has been a vital cog in the MI’s setup since 2016 and has been a part of three title-winning MI team along with his brother Hardik Pandya. He was bought the Lucknow SuperGiants for a whopping 8.25 crores.

4. Trent Boult – After getting him for a trade in 2020, MI reaped benefits with him as he ended up a highest wicket-taker in the Powerplay in the 2020 season. They were the losing bid for him as RR bought him for 8 crores.

5. Rahul Chahar – Once again MI bid for him till 4.6 crores but eventually lost the bid as PBKS  took him away with a 5.25 crores bid.
