India spinner Pragyan Ojha will play the next edition of the Indian Premier League for Mumbai Indians. This after playing for the Deccan Chargers since the inaugural edition of the T20 tournament.

According to a media release late on Friday, Ojha will now use his spin for Champions League winners Mumbai Indians and is the sixth transfer of the season, having already won the purple cap for the Chargers in 2010. "With a spinner of Pragyan Ojha's competence, we fortify our bowling department that has won us many matches in the past seasons. Pragyan Ojha is a player of great international repute, and we welcome him with much excitement," said Nita Ambani, owner of Mumbai Indians.
