Mumbai Indians have fallen to a new low! The defending champions of the Indian Premier League have been beaten in consecutive five games in a row. Even though the presence of Sachin Tendulkar and Ricky Ponting in the dressing room as ‘advisors’, the Rohit Sharma-led side have failed to register a single win during the UAE leg. It has to be the team management and Mumbai’s horror season started with their blunders at the auction. Even though having a full strength squad at their disposal – Rohit Sharma, Lasith Malinga, Kieron Pollard, Harbhajan Singh, Ambati Rayudu, Pragyan Ojha and Corey Anderson; Mumbai Indians look a ‘different’ side to that won the double last year.
So what could be the ‘real’ reason behind their downfall? Bad start, UAE conditions or some voodoo? Well, we found out the 5 valid reasons that brought Mumbai Indians and the Ambanis’ (Neeta Ambani) crashing down onto the earth:
Sachin’s new hairdo
May be the ‘Master Blaster’s new haircut has to do something with the players. Sachin is known to be quite a fanatic of superstitions and god forbid; his new hairdo might not have gone down well with the playing staff and management. Aila! Yeh Tune Kya Kiya Sach?
The players are lacking the energy and decisive skills to play those extravagant strokes. UAE is known to be a very humid spot and in such times, energetic foods are a must. But wait, was Anant Ambani around? The son of Mukesh and Neeta Ambani is quite a hogger and surely, the ‘Young Turk’ must have gobbled up into his tummy.
Rohit Sharma’s ‘lost’ talent
Skipper Rohit Sharma boasts a huge potential and is widely regarded as a talented cricketer in international cricket. But has he lost his talent somewhere? We know the 26-year might have wandered around the desert areas and certainly lost his ‘talent’ in those Arabian sands.
Anu Malik is wearing the wrong coloured tee
Another superstitious persona is Bollywood singer cum musician, Anu Malik. He is known to wear a certain t-shirt for the Mumbai Indians game which according to him brings good luck. Not this time! Change of colour perhaps, we think!
Harbhajan Singh is missing Geeta Basra
Last but not the least, maybe we have found the weak link for Harbhajan’s recent poor form – Geeta Basra’s unavailability. Poor old Bhajji, can’t even bowl a ‘doosra’!
Mumbai Indians return to their old hunting ground on May 3, Wankhede stadium. The MI outfit have a strong base there but not before these hilarious reasons that led to their pathetic downfall in the Middle-East.
