Top 5: Highest Powerplay Scores of Mumbai Indians in IPL

Mumbai Indians are the most successful franchise in the Indian Premier League, with five title victories in 15 years. The team is led by Indian and overseas skippers such as Sachin Tendulkar, Harbhajan Singh, Ricky Ponting, and Rohit Sharma. Firstly, Sachin Tendulkar took the side into their 1st final of IPL in 2010. But, they were crushed by MS Dhoni, leading CSK by 22 runs. At the same time, most of the players like Harbhajan Singh, Lasith Malinga, and Mahela Jayawardene have contributed significantly to the franchise.

Rohit Sharma, who was also appointed as a new skipper of the Indian Cricket team, has led the team to their maiden trophy win in the IPL 2013, which was also his first season of captaincy for MI. While Mahela Jayawardene also made an essential contribution as a coach in the triumphs of IPL 2017, 2019 & 2020. Harbhajan Singh is the only guy who has played for so many years with Mumbai but only led the team in a solo season in 2012. This season, Mumbai stepped into the IPL in the absence of reliable horses like Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, and Trent Boult. And its impact is reflected as the team has lost the first three encounters in a row.
