IPL 2022 LIVE: Mumbai Indians are the most successful franchise in the history of the Indian Premier League. Rohit Sharma and Co dominated the competition by winning as many as five titles.
They won their fifth trophy in IPL 2020 season where they got the better of Delhi Capitals in the final. However, in the subsequent season, they switched off their momentum and failed to make an impact.
They ended up finishing fifth on the table and also failed to qualify for the playoffs. Talking about their performance in the current season, they have been short of producing masterful recitals in Mumbai.
Mumbai Indians have played as many as eight games so far this season. Unfortunately, they are the only team that is yet to open their account. They lost eight games on the trot, which is a disappointing stat.
Moreover, they became the only team in the history of the IPL to lose seven games in a row. After that, they went on to lose eighth game as well. Mumbai Indians are almost out of the playoffs race.
However, the best thing that they can do is to bring up experimentation techniques so as to test the bench strength now. This would help the franchise come up with a fresh perspective in the next season.
