Mumbai Indians’ 2-match winning streak came to a grinding halt on Monday, May 9 as the 2-time champions were beaten by 52 runs by Kolkata Knight Riders in Match 56 of IPL 2022 at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai. The 5-time champions were let down by a horror batting performance as they fell well short of a 166-run target.
Mumbai’s campaign went from bad to worse as they have lost 9 matches in a season for the first time in the 15-year history of the tournament. Mumbai had lost 8 matches under Sachin Tendulkar in 2009, and 8 in 2014 and 2018 under Rohit’s captaincy.
Rohit Sharma’s men were winless after their first 8 matches but bounced back to win 2 on the trot.
