Today we bring you the IPL 2020 Players who never changed teams. Indian Premier League (IPL), a tournament which since the time of its inception has been one of the biggest cricketing spectacles ever witnessed in the cricket community. It brought a new wave of youthful exuberance along with it, the dawn of a format which would, in turn, become the future of cricket- T20.
Over the years some of the biggest names in the history of World Cricket have played for various franchises and solidified their reputation as the best in the business. While some players have changed their representative franchises others have represented only a single franchise in their career and have been loyal to the team management for a long period.
Following is a list of IPL 2020 Players who never changed teams in IPL-
King Kohli has almost become synonymous with Royal Challengers Bangalore. He burst onto the scene in 2008 for the franchise as a young, hot-headed talent with a potential to make it big at the world stage. 12 seasons on, not only is he one of the greatest batsmen in the modern game but also RCB’s marquee player and highest run-scorer ever with over 6000 runs for the franchise– a record for the highest runs scored by any batsman in this tournament as well.
Virat has matured both as a player and an individual while playing for this franchise as he has seen the ebbs and flows of the game. It is unlikely that Virat would ever be able to discontinue his association with RCB in the seasons to come as well. Among the IPL 2020 Players who never changed teams.
Kolkata Knight Riders were just a collection of great players before 2012. In 2012 after the arrival of Gautam Gambhir, the dashing Delhi opener transformed KKR from a group of misfits to a formidable outfit and made them the most popular team in the history of the IPL. Their success on the field can be justified with the fact that KKR is two-time IPL champions.
However, if there was one man who was the true architect behind this change in approach for the franchise, it was Sunil Narine. The most potent and valuable asset for the franchise for the last 8 years, Narine has through his performances for KKR won games single-handedly and established a reputation of being one of the greatest match-winners in T20 cricket.

If bowling yorkers is an art, then there is only one Vincent Van Gough of that art- Lasith Malinga. The man who has revolutionized the toe-crushing delivery is undoubtedly one of the greatest fast bowlers in limited-overs cricket- especially T20 cricket.
However, it was his association with Mumbai Indians- which started in 2008 and continues till today in the mentoring capacity that has blossomed his career. Moreover, Malinga has been one of the prime reasons for Mumbai’s unparalleled success in this tournament. He has emerged as the highest wicket-taker in IPL with more than 150 wickets.

The list of IPL 2020 Players who never changed teams is incomplete without Pollard. Since being inducted into the Mumbai Indians set up in 2010, Pollard has been one of the most inspirational and institutional figures in the team. Being a core member of the leadership group, Pollard has played many match-winning innings for Mumbai.
When the traditionally strong Mumbai batting line-up used to falter, there was one man who was omnipresent to save them blushes and snatch victory from the jaws of defeat with his stupendous batting, his clever and varied bowling, and exhilarating fielding. A true legend of T20 Cricket Pollard has only solidified his legacy through Mumbai as one of the greatest performers in the history of the Indian Premier League.
