Overseas players have a very important role to play in the Indian Premier League (IPL). While there may be a cap on the number of overseas players a franchise can add within their team, they are expected to deliver instant results given that franchises part with big bucks to acquire their services.

In the history of IPL, various renowned players from all over the world have participated in the cash-rich league.

Some of them would even go on to captain their respective franchises for years. Then, some players belonged to an entirely different category.

We’re talking about overseas players who went on to captain not one, or two but three different franchises in their IPL careers. Only a few players can boast of having achieved this incredible feat.

Here are three overseas players who have led multiple franchises in the IPL:

Former Sri Lanka legend Mahela Jayawardene is one of the three overseas players to have led multiple franchises in the IPL from 2010 to 2013. The 42-year-old first donned the skipper’s hat for Delhi Daredevils.

However, his stint as a skipper wasn’t too fruitful.

Later, Jayawardene assumed captain’s duties at Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), but his misfortunes as a skipper continued to follow him to Mohali as well.

And that’s not all, the right-handed opener has also captained the now-defunct Kochi Tuskers Kerala, in the past.

While his record as a skipper may not have been too good, but nobody can dare question the legacy of Jayawardene as a batsman.

Currently, the veteran is providing his services to Mumbai Indians (MI) as head coach of the franchise.
