Mumbai Indians' Legend Grows

Mumbai Indians have reigned supreme yet again. Five years, three championships. Following the trend of winning the IPL title every alternate year that began in 2013, MI became the only team to lift the trophy a record three times, overtaking Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders' tally of two each. So what worked for them? Well, simply put: Everything. Their batting was extremely productive - every batsman till No. 7 scored at least one half-century each and it was backed by some terrific bowling at all stages: the beginning, middle and slog overs.



IPL 10 record: P 17 W 12 L 5 NR 0.78 Points 24

High point
Following the defeat against Rising Pune Supergiant, MI regrouped to win their next six matches. And in that while, not a single base went uncovered. Against Kolkata Knight Riders, an exuberant Hardik Pandya and uncapped Nitish Rana - scoring a 29-ball 50 - pulled off a stunning chase of 179. From 130/5 in 17 overs, they put on a 49-run stand to win the match with one ball to spare. Then against Royal Challengers Bangalore, with Mumbai at 7/3 and with all doors possibly shut on them, Kieron Pollard produced a matured knock of 70 and saw the team through. Rana went on to score two more half-centuries, both turning out to be match-winning ones, against Gujarat Lions and Kings XI Punjab. Mumbai faltered a bit towards the business end of the league stage, but the impact of their first-half was such that they mostly had a grip of the top spot in the standings and finished the round-robin stage as the No. 1 side. Also, outside of the six-match winning streak, they skittled the Delhi Daredevils for 66 to register the biggest win in terms of runs - 146.


Low point
Considering they went on to win the title, there isn't much to pick really, barring the fact that despite their terrific run, the one team they couldn't crack was the Rising Pune Supergiant, losing to them twice in the league stage, and then again in the first Qualifier. Then again, perhaps MI saved it for the game that meant the most, the all-important final. Also, conceding 230 against Kings XI Punjab was an eye-opener right ahead of the Playoffs.

24 points is a record in itself. Every team has its ups and downs. But that did not stop Mumbai Indians from shoving all their vicissitudes and bring home the Cup. This picture above speaks volumes of Mumbai Indians'' superiority in the IPL. Along with KKR, RPS and SRH, MI too is an allrounder team. It''s got all the checkboxes ticked. Collective team efforts count.

This is very amazing. A hat-trick win by the Mumbai Indians was so spectacular. They even defeated wonderful teams like Kolkata Knight Riders, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rising Pune Supergiant. They played phenomenal cricket. They have only lost 3 matches out of 17 matches. Wow!! Superb win by the Mumbai Indians. Congratulations!! For the hat-trick win and the amazing final they played.
