Mumbai Indians have been one the most consistent team in the IPL and as a result got their hands on IPL trophy for the most number of times. The Mumbai franchise have also been involved in plenty of thrilling fixtures, one coming in 2014 against Rajasthan Royals, which helped the secure playoff match.
New Zealand’s Corey Anderson was the player of the match but Aditya Tare also sealed his moment as he hit a six off James Faulkner to help Mumbai Indians win with 32 balls to spare. “Mumbai Indians has such a huge and loyal fanbase not just in India but across the world,” Tare said during an Instagram Live session with Cricket Graph.
“Fortunately, there was a moment in my career when it came down to one ball with a boundary or six needed, and it worked out for me as a batsman. Wherever I go or meet people, the first thing they keep reminding me about is the last ball six and the celebration. So, it is a very special moment for me.”
Tare, however, has not been a regular for Mumbai Indians. He has lost his place to young Ishan Kishan who opens quite often for the Mumbai franchise.
Meanwhile, IPL 2020 will be held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), its chairman Brijesh Patel confirmed after the global governing council postponed the 2020 T20 World Cup to next year. IPL 2020 will run from September to November.
Mumbai Indians will put their title on defense in IPL 2020. The side has won the lucrative tournament in the year — 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019 — under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma.
