Delights in Despair: Three Things That Worked Out for the Mumbai Indians in IPL 2024

The IPL 2024 is almost come to an end. Just a few group-stage matches are left. After that, the top four teams will face each other in a front battle to lift the trophy. Since the beginning of the tournament, Mumbai Indians have faced a huge backlash for appointing Hardik Pandya as Mumbai Indians skipper. In the whole season, they struggled with their form. In 13 matches, they registered only four wins and faced defeats in the other nine matches and currently standing in the last position of the points table. Among all those disasters, they have three things that worked out well for them in this shaky season. Let’s explore those three points. 

Suryakumar Yadav’s Comeback from Injury and Form:

Mumbai Indians are the five-time IPL champions. They are one of the big names in the tournament. But this season was not a memorable one for them. They faced setbacks since the beginning of the season. Among all those strugglers, there are a few positive things that have worked out well for them in this season. One of them is Suryakumar Yadav’s comeback in the squad. 

Over the years, Suryakumar Yadav has become one of the biggest weapons of the Mumbai Indians squad. But last year on the South Africa tour, he sustained an injury. During the South Africa tour in December, Suryakumar injured his ankle. Additionally, he was diagnosed with a sports hernia requiring surgery in January. After three long months, spending in rehab he made a comeback. 

Despite that injury, he missed some initial matches for the Mumbai Indians. After coming back, there was no look back. He has bounced back in a remarkable way. In 10 matches, he already scored 345 runs with three exceptional half-centuries. Even against Hyderabad, he played an excellent unbeaten knock of 102 runs in 51 balls. That gave a big boost even for Team India as he has been named in the T20 World Cup Squad. 

Tilak Varma Established Himself as a Dependable Middle-Order Batter:

Along with some experienced batters, Mumbai Indians have always believed in young talents. Tilak Varma is one of them. Tilak Varma joined Mumbai Indians for INR 1.70 crore during the mega auction before IPL 2022. His immediate impact made him a crucial player for the team, showcasing his value as a key member right from the start. 

His exceptional ability touched the high in this ongoing season. In crucial matches, he appeared with his extraordinary ability. In their second match of the league when Sunrisers Hyderabad put on a big total of 277 runs, Tilak Varma played an exceptional knock of 64 runs in 34 balls. That impacted their innings. 

He carried his consistence performances. Whenever his team needed him, he was there. He has played a major role in Mumbai Indians’ middle order. In this IPL season, Tilak Varma showcased remarkable form, amassing 416 runs with a highest score of 65 at an impressive average of 41.60 and a striking rate of 149.64. Although he didn’t secure a century, he contributed three half-centuries, hitting 35 boundaries and 19 sixes throughout the season.

Piyush Chawla is Creating Magic:

In the ongoing season, Mumbai got great strength in the form of Piyush Chawla. Serving Indian cricket since 2008, he is still showing excellence in the IPL 2024. Wearing a Mumbai Indians jersey, he is showcasing his excellence at this stage. This veteran bowler is helping the franchise with his excellence. 

In the IPL 2024 season, Piyush Chawla played 10 matches, bowling a total of 31 overs. He conceded 283 runs while taking 10 wickets, with an average of 28.30 and an economy rate of 9.13. His best bowling figures were 3/33, and he didn’t manage to secure a four-wicket haul throughout the season. Against Hyderabad, he registered his best performance of this IPL. 

Standing at this age, showing magic with the ball. His spells are helping the franchise on crucial points. He proved that standing at this age, he has got the spark alive in him. The way he has been creating pressure on the opponent batters is a lesson to the youngsters. Mumbai Indians have found a gem in this veteran bowler.
