Defending champions, one of the most solid sides in the Indian Premier League, an exciting mix of experience and young talent, the superlatives for the Mumbai Indians went on and on before the first bowl of the tournament was even bowled. Having sprinted to the title last season, it was popular belief that this was going to be another dominating year for the Mumbai Indians. With teams being built from scratch, Mumbai had retained their core which was supposed to play a long way in their advantage. While teams chopped and changed and came up with new strategies for their new group of players, Mumbai were supposed to sweep the ground from under their opponents in the process. If only the IPL was so predictable though. Its competitive and extremely unpredictable nature is what has made the Indian Premier League the greatest and biggest cricketing tournament today. Unfortunately for the Mumbai Indians unit, they have had to be on the ugly side of this year’s season. With a couple of matches falling from their grip in the closing moments of the game, the Indians have been thoroughly outplayed in most of their performances.
Punjab on the other side have finally come good in the IPL. With KL Rahul fully living upto his price tag, Chris Gayle has also lived upto the faith placed in him by Virender Sehwag. Coming along as only a batting unit in the first half of the season, Punjab’s bowlers have come to the party sooner rather than later to make them one of the most polished sides in 2018.
