IPL 2022: “The Indians of Mumbai have always kept it well”


Former Indian cricketers Pragyan Ojha and Parthiv Patel have dissected Mumbai Indians’ sixth consecutive defeat in IPL 2022. Ojha, who played for Mumbai Indians between 2012 and 2015, stressed that the franchise must continue to keep the locker room motivated despite the race without a win.

On Friday, the Mumbai Indians suffered their sixth straight loss to the Lucknow Super Giants. The newly formed franchise set a target of 200 for the Mumbai Indians and they are off to a good start. However, the five-time champions lost momentum and lost by 18 points.

Speaking to Cricbuzz Live, Pragyan Ojha said Mumbai Indians need to maintain a good dressing room atmosphere. Ojha said:

“What’s important is how you navigate the dressing room atmosphere. I say that because the Mumbai Indians have always kept it well. They lost six on the trot for the first time and I would like to emphasize that as a champion team, keep the dressing room environment in good condition.”

Ojha explained that the team must remain a tight unit in times like this could give them the opportunity to make a comeback. He added:

“I would like to add that when you’ve lost so many games, the most important thing is that their dressing room atmosphere brought them back. It’s vital to keep him healthy because there shouldn’t be any differences in that. S’ there is even a small chance of a comeback beating the odds, the dressing room environment has to be good because you lose a game there, the execution happens on the pitch Winning and losing happens in the dressing room .

So far, Rohit Sharma & Co. has found no positives from their dismal campaign. The skipper’s form has been a significant concern as he managed just 114 runs in six matches aged 19. It’s also the worst start the franchise has had in tournament history.

Meanwhile, Parthiv Patel acknowledged that Indians in Mumbai had a tough task on their hands. The 37-year-old pointed out that no combination has worked for them so far, while repeated failures from top hitters make matters worse. Patelle said:

“It’s a massive wall and to break it they have to think a lot. Mumbai Indians have tried everything. We saw Unadkat playing number 7, today Fabian Allen, previously Tim David. They did several things without find the right combination.

“On top of that, the first order failed to score runs. If the first order – Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan – don’t make runs, hit under 100, then you have two young hitters following .”

The five-time champions will next face Chennai Super Kings on Thursday at DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai.
