Since winning the Indian T20 League title for the fifth time in 2020, Mumbai has struggled to reach the playoffs in the last two seasons. Two years back, the team was exposed on neutral conditions across the two legs of the tournament. However, last year, they had the worst season in their history as they finished last in the points table.

Not to forget, the team also had a poor auction in February last year. This was reflected in the team’s performance as they were found wanting in quite a few departments. However, they seem to haven’t learned from the mistakes that were visible during the Indian T20 League player auction 2023. In this listicle, we will have a look at three players who might be earning way too much.

1. Ishan Kishan

The former India U19 skipper was the costliest player of the 2022 edition. His side, Mumbai went all guns blazing for him in the auction and spent 15.25 crores INR. Not to forget, the five-time winners battled with other teams in the fray.

However, the left-hander failed to repay the faith of the team. After playing 14 games, he scored 418 runs with most of the runs coming toward the end of the league stage. By then, his side became the first team to be eliminated from the playoffs race in the 15th season.
