In their final game of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, Mumbai Indians (MI) suffered an 18-run defeat against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). Opting to bat first, LSG posted a formidable total of 214 runs for 6 wickets, buoyed by a standout performance from Nicholas Pooran, who scored 75 runs off 29 deliveries.

Despite commendable innings from Rohit Sharma (68 off 38) and Naman Dhir (62 off 28), MI couldn’t successfully chase the target. Following this loss, the team, led by Hardik Pandya, plummeted to the bottom position on the points table.

A forgettable season for Mumbai Indians

MI’s campaign in the IPL took a sharp downward trajectory as they faced defeat in 10 out of their 14 matches, a staggering blow that promptly eliminated them from contention for the playoffs. This premature exit marked a significant departure from their usual dominance in the league, highlighting the extent of their struggles throughout the season. The decision to shuffle the captaincy role ahead of the tournament, presumably aimed at injecting fresh energy and strategy into the team, ultimately failed to yield the desired results. Despite the pedigree of being five-time champions, MI endured one of their bleakest seasons in recent memory, grappling with inconsistency and underperformance on multiple fronts.

The disappointment extended beyond just the win-loss record; it was a sobering realization for fans and analysts alike that even a team with such a stellar track record could falter so dramatically. Despite the formidable lineup on paper, MI’s on-field performances failed to live up to expectations, with key players often failing to deliver when it mattered most.

Fans react to the embarrassing season of MI

Following LSG’s victory over MI at the Wankhede Stadium, social media platforms buzzed with reactions from fans. Many took the opportunity to poke fun at Mumbai’s lacklustre performance throughout the tournament, using memes and witty comments to express their sentiments.
