Defending Indian Premier League champions Mumbai Indians are really in the doldrums this year. The Rohit Sharma-led team suffered its fourth straight defeat on Sunday. It is Mumbai's worst losing streak in IPL.
Mumbai Indians lost by six wickets to Delhi Daredevils after scoring 125 for six in their 20 overs. Kieron Pollard top scored with 33 not out as New Zealander Corey Anderson and Australian specialist Mike Hussey continued their lean run. Rohit Sharma, who opened the innings, was unlucky to be run out for 4. Mumbai's 125 for six was their third lowest against Delhi Daredevils.
An indication of Mumbai Indians' poor form has been their inability to score 150 even once in their first four games. Their 141 for seven against Chennai Super Kings in Dubai on April 25 has been their highest so far. No wonder they have sought help from former Australian legend and their official captain last season, Ricky Ponting.
