Mumbai Indians have endured their worst ever season so far with 8 losses and a single win to be placed at the 10th place. This is the first time they have been placed so low in the table and have already been knocked out of the tournament. The 5 time champs problems began in the IPL auctions, when they couldn’t add the right bench players as well; it coincided with their top players losing form at the wrong time. But all is not doom and gloom for the Mumbai Indians.
