It is a tradition for Mumbai Indians to lose the first match of the IPL tournament. Yes, Mumbai team is continuing the streak of losing their first match since 2013.
Between 2009 and 2012, Mumbai won the first matches played in the tournament and then lost consecutively. In IPL 2013, Mumbai lost by 2 runs to Royal Challengers Bangalore. In every subsequent season, they kept losing the first match against whomever they played. In the 2014 and 2015 IPL seasons, Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Mumbai in their very first match. Rising Pune Supergiants did that in 2016 and 2017. In 2018, Mumbai seemed to break this tradition.. In the first match of that season, Chennai Super Kings won against Mumbai by a wicket.
Also, in the 2019 IPL season, Delhi Capitals defeated Mumbai by 37 runs. In 2020, Rohit’s team is bound to lose at the hands of CSK once again. In IPL 2021 also RCB beat Mumbai by 2 wickets in their first match. Also, last year i.e. season 15 of IPL, Mumbai once again lost its first match. In that match, Delhi Capitals won an unexpected victory over Mumbai. Mumbai Indians lost the first match for the tenth season in a row.
The last time Mumbai Indians won their first match was in 2012 when Harbhajan Singh captained Mumbai in the opening match of the tournament. Mumbai defeated Chennai by eight wickets in that match. After that, Sachin Tendulkar, Diane Bravo and Ricky Ponting led Mumbai. They also continued to maintain that record. Even Rohit Sharma, who was very successful at the end, could not end this worst record. But Rohit is looking to put an end to this worst record during today’s match against RCB. And Mumbai fans are also pinning their hopes on the hit man. We have to wait and see what happens.
