The 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) witnessed an unusual event as the five-time champions, Mumbai Indians (MI) even failed to qualify for the playoffs. However, all the members of the MI Paltan took this early exit from the tournament with their chins up.

Recently, Akash Ambani, who is the owner of the Mumbai-based franchise, sent an emotional message to Rohit Sharma and his men. He pointed out how the latest cycle has been a fruitful one for MI, in which they achieved the unique feat of winning the title in two successive seasons. The 29-year-old further added that he does not have too much regret regarding their underwhelming performance in IPL 2021 in the UAE.

“We will definitely remember this cycle as the most successful cycle of MI in the history of Vivo IPL. Winning back-to-back trophies in four years is no mean feat. We know what it takes to be consistent over the next 30-35 matches. And even this season, I am not going to look back at it with too much regret because we have been a very very successful franchise,” Ambani said in a video message for MI members.

No matter what the future holds for each and every one of you, the family aspect of remaining with MI will always remain,” he added.
