Yuvraj Singh – INR 16 Crore

The flamboyant left-hander was roped in by Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals) ahead of the 2015 season for a record-breaking INR 16 crore, just a year after Royal Challengers Bangalore made a successful bid of INR 14 Crore for him. However, Yuvraj failed to repay the faith, scoring 248 runs at a paltry average of 19.07 and striking at a lackluster 118.09.

The all-rounder was bought by Sunrisers Hyderabad for INR 7 crore in 2016 and had a couple of decent seasons with the team, scoring 488 runs in 22 matches and averaging a significantly better 27.11. A disastrous stint with his home team Kings XI Punjab followed, where he averaged 10.83 and struck at a dismal 89.04. The world cup champion signed off from the league in 2019 on a high, scoring a sizzling half-century on debut for the title-winning Mumbai Indians.
