IPL 2022: Mumbai Indians suffer seven consecutive defeats from seven games

A very disappointing result was obtained by the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL) this season. Recorded from the seven matches they have played so far, the Indians have not managed to score a single victory. They couldn't beat the opposing team at all so they had to suffer seven crushing defeats in a row in one IPL season.

This is the worst starting result ever in their IPL history, for the first time. Whereas previously, this Mumbai-based franchise team was included in one of the strongest teams and was once the most profitable franchise team in IPL history. They have even won 5 times in the IPL in the previous years.

Previously, the Indians had also experienced their lowest point in IPL matches in 2014. At that time, they suffered 5 defeats in the 5 matches they had played in one season in the UAE leg. However, when they returned to India for the second leg of the IPL 2014, the Indians fought hard in the tournament and managed to turn the tide that season. They unexpectedly, won seven of the next nine matches to finally become one of the teams that made it to the playoffs

Apart from the Indians, there are several other teams that have been recorded at this unwanted level, including the Deccan Chargers (7 in 2008), KKR (9 in 2009) (7 in 2015 Punjab Kings), Pune Warriors (9 – 2012 and 2013). ), Delhi Capitals (6, 6, 9 in 2013, 2013, and 2014) and RCB (6 – 2017 and 2019)

If the Indians don't bounce back from their losses on the pitch, it's not impossible that they will set an unwanted new historical record in the IPL 2022. So far, they have become the first team in IPL history to suffer 7 consecutive defeats at the beginning of the season.

The worst start in IPL

After suffering 6 defeats in the IPL 2022 match, the Indians still seem unable to rise from their adversity. The Indians resumed their worst IPL report against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai on Thursday. In that match, Chennai managed to beat the Indians by 3 wickets.

With their success in beating the Indians, the team under captain Ravindra Jadeja secured their second IPL win this season. The Super Kings are one of the toughest rivals of Mumbai in this tournament. CSK itself was also struggling hard by winning only two of their 7 matches, so far.

Meanwhile, Mumbai fans are expecting a similar comeback from the team, as the MI team did in the IPL 2014. The fans believe that if their beloved team has done it in the past, then the Indians will be able to do it again this season.

Disappointing results

However, the Indians could no longer suffer another defeat. Because if they lose again, Mumbai’s chances of qualifying for this year's playoffs will be unlikely.

When the Indians put their team together in IPL big auction, Mumbai knew that this team would be a bit weak for IPL 2022. This is because big players like Jofra Archer is not joining.
