New Delhi: five time winner Mumbai Indians IPL-2023 is not able to return to its old color. Till now this team has shown average game. In seven matches, this team has won three matches. This team, captained by Rohit Sharma, has faced defeat in their last two matches. On Tuesday, this team was defeated by Gujarat Titans and before that by Punjab Kings. Seeing these two defeats, a weakness of Mumbai comes to the fore.

Death overs are very important in T20. Means 16-20 overs. The game gets made and gets worse in these overs. Every team tries to spend minimum runs while bowling during this time and score maximum runs while batting. During the bowling, Mumbai has looked weak in the last two matches here.

looted runs

Now if we look at the figures, they are surprising. Against Punjab also, the last four overs of Mumbai proved to be very expensive and the story remained the same against Gujarat. The match between Mumbai and Punjab was played on 22 April. In this match, Punjab had batted first and scored 214 runs losing eight wickets. Out of this, Mumbai had scored 65 runs in the last four overs.

The story did not change even against Gujarat, but the runs got more. Mumbai scored 70 runs in the last four overs against Gujarat. For 16 overs, Gujarat’s score was 137 runs at the loss of four wickets. But this score became 207 in 20 overs. This is where the match got out of Mumbai’s hands. In front of this huge score, Mumbai could score only 152 runs after losing nine wickets after playing 20 overs.

This time Mumbai team is missing good fast bowlers for death overs. Jasprit Bumrah is out due to injury. In his absence, the team had hopes from Joffra Archer but he is not playing consistently and the reason for this is his fitness. The rest of the bowlers do not have much experience. Arjun Tendulkar has made his debut this season.

Jason Behrendorff and Riley Meredith are also unable to leave much of an impact. Mumbai Had finished a hefty amount of 17.25 for Cameron Green but this player too has not been able to do anything special in bowling yet. In the death overs, the lack of run-saving bowlers in the team is clearly visible. Rohit will have to find a solution in time.
