The most successful side in the IPL history, Mumbai Indians, have now created the record for the worst start by a team to an IPL season by losing their first 7 matches of IPL 2022 when they lost a last-ball thriller to Chennai Super Kings on Thursday night.
Former Mumbai Indians batsman Chris Lynn feels that Rohit Sharma’s unit is lacking the collectiveness than made them the best T20 team in the world in 2020. Lynn reckoned there are “factions” within the squad preventing MI to play as one team.
“They (Mumbai Indians) are starting to sort of break off into little groups and they just want to get off the field. And it’s not a great sign. And I think the change room right now wouldn’t be a great place to be in,” Chris Lynn told ESPNcricinfo.
“Winning is a habit and losing is a habit. They have got issues with the bat, with the ball, and in the field and mentally. It just seems like there are factions everywhere in the set-up.”
