Kings XI Punjab, Mumbai Indians, Delhi Capitals have been the busiest franchises among all so far.

Here we look at all the IPL transfer news that has taken place so far:

Rajasthan Royals' Ajinkya Rahane traded to Delhi Capitals:

Ajinkya Rahane, who played and captained Rajasthan Royals since the inception of the league, bid goodbye to the franchise on Thursday. He will play for Delhi Capitals from next year, he has been exchanged for spinners Rahul Tewatia, Mayank Markande. Rahane, who captained Royals in 24 of his 100 IPL games between 2011 and 2019, was also their top run-getter having scored 2810 runs at an average of 34.26 and strike rate of 122.65.

Ashwin to Delhi Capitals from Kings XI Punjab:

The biggest transfer deal has happened between Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Capitals with the Mohali-based franchise trading R Ashwin for Rs 1.5 crore and Karnataka spinner Jagadeesha Suchith. Ashwin captained Punjab in two seasons (2018 and 2019) but they could not enter the last-four in either of the seasons. Ashwin will play for Delhi Capitals in 2020, however, it is yet unclear whether he will lead the side as current captain Shreyas Iyer fared well as captain of the Capitals last season.

Trent Boult to Mumbai Indians from Delhi Capitals: New Zealand's leading pacer Trent Boult, who played for Delhi Capitals for two back to back seasons in 2018 and 2019, will feature for Mumbai Indians from IPL 2020. Boult has 38 wickets in 33 IPL games so far. This transfer is good news for Mumbai Indians who already possess a potent pace attack which is led by Lasith Malinga and Jasprit Bumrah. It will be exciting to see two quality international pacers in Bumrah and Boult bowling in tandem. The left-arm pace of Boult surely gives Mumbai variation in the bowling attack.
