IPL: One Player Each Team Regrets For Releasing
Mumbai Indians- Dwayne Bravo
Dwayne Bravo was part of Mumbai Indians from IPL 2008 to 2010 edition. The five-time champions did not retain the West Indies cricketer in the 2011 edition. This can be called a big mistake as Bravo later emerged as the most successful all-rounder in the Indian Premier League.
In the 2013 and 2015 season, Bravo was the highest wicket-taker with 32 and 26 wickets respectively. The Caribbean cricketer is also the first player to score 1000 runs and pick 100 wickets in the Indian Premier League.
