IPL 2020 is in the set of history books now as a notable season with no live attendance finished in Dubai last Tuesday. The Mumbai Indians won the IPL title for the fifth time in the wake of enlisting a five-wicket victory over the Delhi Capitals in the fantastic finale. The Sunrisers Hyderabad completed the podium, with the Royal Challengers Bangalore accomplishing the fourth position.

The Rajasthan Royals turned into the first group to win an IPL title and afterward took the wooden spoon home. They had won the title in 2008 yet completed at the bottom in 2020. No other franchise has accomplished this questionable accomplishment to date. There were some flawed choices that their team management made this season.

The Jaipur-based franchise and a couple of different groups raised eyebrows by sidelining their headliners in the wake of marking them at enormous costs. This article will look at those four costly purchases that warmed the seats in IPL 2020.

Indian leg-spinner Mayank Markande turned into the main part in IPL history to change groups twice between two seasons. The Mumbai Indians exchanged him to the Delhi Capitals during the exchange window.

2. Parthiv Patel – Royal Challengers Bangalore

Another 'royal' franchise that marked a player and didn't give him a solitary game was the Royal Challengers Bangalore. The Virat Kohli-drove side attempted Josh Philippe and AB de Villiers as their wicket-keepers.

Shockingly, they didn't consider giving a single game to the accomplished Parthiv Patel. In the playoff match, Virat Kohli himself came out to open the innings. Somebody like Parthiv, who made 1.7 Crores this year, might have been helpful around then.

3. Chris Lynn – Mumbai Indians

Chris Lynn was a part of the IPL winning team this year. Nonetheless, he probably won't be so charmed with that reality since he just warmed the seats for the Mumbai Indians in IPL 2020.

The Aussie batsman was the first player to enter the IPL 2020 Auction. Numerous fans anticipated that he should bring a serious deal, however, the Mumbai-based franchise marked him at his base cost of 2 Crores. Quinton de Kock's strong form didn't permit Lynn a single game this season.

4. Sherfane Rutherford – Mumbai Indians
