Mumbai Indians is known as one of the most successful cricket franchises all around the globe. The team is owned by Indian’s richest businessman Mukesh Ambani. Talking about their achievements, Mumbai has single handedly won 5 IPL seasons most by any other team. Mumbai has also won two Champions League T20 finals.
This team has been led by a couple of legends who are still known as masters of cricket. During the initial editions of IPL, master blaster Sachin Tendulkar led his home team. A few years later Australia’s most successful captain Ricky Ponting, took over the team after little masters retirement. In between those periods even Harbhajan Singh, took control over the team whenever Ponting wasn’t available.
Later on in 2013, Mumbai signed a multi-million contract with local boy Rohit Sharma, though he wasn’t popular during that time. Yet the team management showed tremendous confidence in him. Ponting too handed over his captainship role to this youngster and Hitman made sure to grab this opportunity with both his hands, making Mumbai win its first ever IPL title. Further, down the line Mumbai won 4 more titles in 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2020 under Rohit’s leadership. Both Mumbai Indian’s and Rohit Sharma became the most successful team and Captain of T20.
