Mumbai


MUM Bio

Mumbai – the land of a myriad dreams is a melting pot and the Mumbai unit does its best to showcase the same. Along with Tendulkar, its iconic master blaster, the team has solid hitters like Aiden Blizzard, Ambati Rayudu and Rohit Sharma combined with a host of exciting all-rounders like and Kieron Pollard, James Franklin, etc and arguably the world’s best T20 bowler in Lasith Malinga.

Owned by Mukesh Ambani's Reliance Industries Limited, Mumbai's best show came in the third IPL season, wherein they ended up as finalists, losing to the eventual winners, Chennai. They were also a part of the Champions League T20 that year, but could not sustain for long. In 2011 too, Mumbai qualified to play in the CLT20 as a result of finishing third in the IPL. Despite the absence of senior players like Tendulkar, Mumbai went into the competition as underdogs with Harbhajan Singh leading from the front and emerged as winners of the 2011 Champions League T20, beating the Bangalore in the finals.

Mumbai gained a lot out of the 2012 auctions, as they bought some valuable foreign players in the form of Herschelle Gibbs, Mitchell Johnson, Richard Levi, Thisara Perera, etc. Andrew Symonds announced his retirement from all forms of cricket, and was hence missing. While Johnson was ruled out even before playing a single game, others contributed fairly. However, that wasn’t enough as a struggling Mumbai side was thrown out by the Chennai in the eliminator, thus ending their average campaign.
