Former Indian batsman Ajay Jadeja has found similarities between the Mumbai Indians’ IPL 2021 campaign and Chennai Super Kings’ last year’s campaign. However, Mumbai Indians have won only five matches out of 11 so far.
Notably, two-time defending champions have lost their last match against the Delhi Capitals where they posted only 129 runs in their 20 overs despite having a strong batting unit and eventually lost the game too.
Down but not out.

Analyzing Mumbai Indians’ batting performance against Delhi Capitals on Cricbuzz Live Hindi, Ajay Jadeja said:
“The fizz, the bubbliness, and the belligerence which was the speciality of the Mumbai Indians is not there this year. But it is not uncommon. This is not the first time. If you see, a year ago, even CSK had the same phase. RCB had it for years. Even Punjab and Delhi have experienced it for many years. I am a big fan of Mumbai Indians, but I think only MI can answer what’s their problem.”
Confusion and uncertainty are two things that spread the quickest – Ajay Jadeja
However, both Mumbai and Chennai are two of the most successful teams in the league. However, CSK failed to qualify in the playoffs in IPL 2020, and Mumbai is going through a similar phase this year. While explaining the reason, Ajay Jadeja said shared his views.
“I think the team environment plays an important role. Confusion and uncertainty are two things that spread the quickest in the dressing room. You know it often happens that if one person asks for tea in a group, the people around him also order tea. It looked like that when I saw MI today, you know, the likes of Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Tiwary,” Ajay Jadeja concluded.
Mumbai Indians will next play against Rajasthan Royals on Tuesday in Sharjah and they would certainly try to bounce back to keep their hope alive for the playoffs as well.
