5 IPL trades that went completely wrong in the IPL:
1. Trent Boult (DC to MI)
Delhi Capitals released Trent Boult to Mumbai Indians ahead of IPL 2020. He took 23 wickets in 19 matches at an economy rate of 8.78 for Delhi in his two-year stint with them. Delhi had purchased him for INR 2.2 crores in the auction, while Mumbai offered him another crore to seal the tempting deal.
With Boult and Rabada Delhi had a fearsome new-ball pair which was broken open after Capitals released him. However, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise for MI for who he has picked up 22 wickets so far.
