It’s not unusual for cricketers to represent multiple IPL teams. Only the finest cricketers and a select few players who can maintain a high degree of consistency are retained by the franchise owners. As a result, the bulk of players end up in the auction pool, where any club can bid on their services.
Several cricketers have managed to play for several IPL franchises over the years. Switching clubs has dramatically improved the fortunes of certain cricketers; nevertheless, the lack of stability has resulted in franchises being moved from one to another. In addition, some cricketers seek adjustments in order to better utilize their abilities and expand their chances.
