Suryakumar Yadav – The master of IPL:

Mumbai Indians bought Suryakumar Yadav for IPL 2012, but he didn’t get many chances to play in the tournament, as the team was already loaded with players like Sachin, Jayawardene, and Gibbs.

He played only one match in the season and even in that match, he didn’t get the chance to bat. He remained in the same team for the next season too.

Then, in the IPL 2014, KKR bought Yadav after Mumbai released him. It became a blessing in disguise for him, as he played some wonderful cricket for his new IPL team as a middle-order batsman.
