The most successful IPL team, Mumbai Indians with 5 IPL titles is languishing at the bottom of the 10-team table without any points. The Rohit Sharma-led team, though has a reputation for crawling out of holes, has suffered as many as 5 back to back defeats this season. Even in 2015, the team lifted itself from 5 consecutive defeats at the beginning of the season and went on to win the IPL title. But there are slim chances of history repeating itself this season because of the 10-team format and they now need to buckle up.
Mumbai Indians won the IPL title in 2015 despite losing the first 5 matches of the season consecutively!
Will they be able to pull it off this year?
