HIGHLIGHTS

  • Rohit hailed the commitment his team mates have shown this season
  • MI missed out on a playoff spot for the first time in three years
  • They were looking to get a hat-trick of title wins, having won in 2019 and 2020

Mumbai Indians (MI) captain Rohit Sharma said that the team’s failure to make it to the playoffs this season in the Indian Premier League (IPL) does not take away the extraordinary success they have enjoyed in the recent past.

Rohit also hailed the commitment shown by his team mates throughout the campaign.

“A season full of ups, downs & learnings. But these 14 matches won’t take away the glory this incredible group achieved over the last 2-3 seasons. Every player who don the blue & gold played with pride & gave his best. And that’s what makes us the team we are! ONE FAMILY @mipaltan,” he said in his tweet.

Mumbai Indians finished fifth on the league table, missing out on a playoff spot on the basis of their inferior net run rate. They posted their highest-ever score of 235/9 in their final league game against SunRisers Hyderabad but needed to win that match by at least 171 runs to stand a chance at going through.

MI are the most successful team in the history of the tournament, having won five titles. They won two of these titles in 2019 and 2020 and were looking to get a hat-trick of title wins this season.
