It promised a tough life for Mumbai Indians. Although none of the MI batters made a half-century, the ones like Sharma, Yadav, Varma, and Brevis delivered a few dozen each with an SR of 140+.

This defeat left MI at the bottom of IPL’s table with zero scored points, while the team also has the worst NRR.
