Mumbai Indians have been part of the IPL since the inaugural edition in 2008. Ahead of the first season, Sachin Tendulkar was picked as their icon player and also the captain of the franchise. Unfortunately, they missed out on a semi-final spot by just one point. 

After failing to make it into the playoffs for the first two seasons, Mumbai Indians staged a solid comeback in 2010 and went on to reach the finals. However, a 22-run defeat over Chennai Super Kings meant that they had to wait to get hold of their first IPL trophy. 

2013 was first taste of success

Mumbai’s success story began in the 2013 edition of the Indian Premier League. Following his slump in his batting form, Ricky Ponting stepped down as the captain, and Rohit Sharma was appointed as MI’s new captain midway through the season. 

Rohit impressed one and all with his leadership skills as MI went on to win their maiden IPL title. With him at the helm of affairs, Mumbai registered title wins every alternative year- 2015, 2017, and 2019. All four titles came under Hitman’s captaincy. 

Mumbai Indians became the most successful team after they clinched their fifth IPL trophy in 2020. From not winning a single IPL trophy in the first five years to getting hold of five titles in the next 8 editions, Mumbai Indians became one of the strongest teams in the cash-rich league. 

Ahead of the 2024 season, MI would be keen to lift their sixth IPL title. You can check out our IPL online betting guide if you think you would like to place a bet on this team.
