Since IPL has this ‘icon players’ rule, these players are required to play from their own city only. The Mumbai franchise bought several heroic players such as Shaun Pollock, Sanath Jayasuriya, Harbhajan Singh, Lasith Malinga and Robin Uthappa and made Lalchand Rajput as the first coach of the team. Sachin Tendulkar was made captain of Mumbai Indians, he got injured later that year and Harbhajan Singh took over but unfortunately, team saw downfall by getting defeated in the first four games. 

Their first match was a five-wicket defeat to the Royal Challengers Bangalore on  2008 at Wankhede Stadium . During the same time, Harbhajan  was suspended from the tournament for reportedly slapping Sreesanth during Mumbai’s league match against Kings XI Punjab. After this scenario, Shaun Pollock held the leadership duties until Sachin returned. Mumbai actually struggled hard to put up consistent performances during the season. Duminy and Tendulkar were the only hope for batting, while Malings was solely expected to do brilliant in bowling. They had less strong players at that time. 

Also,  there were  minimal contributions from other players, that made it little hard for the team in the very starting. With only five wins from 14 matches, Mumbai finished on seventh place in the league table. Till present, Lasith Malinga is the leading wicket taker of the team and the IPL as well. No matter their rough start, they began to kick off well from 2013 by winning straight 4 titles. MI are also known to have an excellent scouting network as they have produced world-class talents such as Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya.

It is just impossible to talk about IPL without talking about the Hitman, Sachin Tendulkar. He got for the team the first orange cap in 2010 with 618 runs as the IPL finals were just about to begin. Also, this made his record as the first Indian to score 600+ runs in that edition. After their first trophy in 2013, the legend retired. He is still considered as the most golden player in IPL.



In 2014, Lady luck had not been much supportive to the team, as MI lost 5 of the matches in UAE but they did amazingly well in the next match defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad but lost the other matches. They did made their powerful comeback but were inconsistent with their performance.

 In one interesting match against Kings XI Punjab, Lendl Simmons scored a 100 due to which they won by seven wickets. With some players really good at batting, MI reached the pay offs they deserve but they kept losing the important matches, that eventually led to the elimination of their 2014 campaign. In 2015, they won their second IPL Title. They lost Aaron Finch and Corey Anderson due to injury for the rest of the remaining season, which meant Lendl Simmons got a comeback into the team and with 6 half-centuries, it literally gave the team solid start throughout the season. Mumbai went on to win 9 out of their last 10 Matches to win the title, thanks to solid batting performances from Simmons, Rohit Sharma,  Rayudu and Pollard and good bowling from Malinga of course, McClenaghan and H Singh. In IPL 2017, the Mumbai Indians finished at the top of the points table, winning 10 out of 14 matches while In IPL 2018, the Mumbai Indians finished at fifth spot after winning 6 and losing 8 matches. 

2019 was pretty good for the team, as they played the final of VIVO IPL 2019 where Mumbai defeated Chennai by 1 run to become champions for the fourth time. It was such a thriller match! – MI won by 1 run and bought the lucky trophy for the 4th time, seeing the downfalls they had in the past right from very beginning and seeing them literally rising from it makes this team a true success example for all of us!
