Mumbai. The team of Mumbai Indians was always known for its sharp bowling. Bowlers like Jasprit Bumrah, Lasith Maling and Trent Boult used to give success to the team on important occasions. But in IPL 2022, the whole game has turned. The team has lost 5 matches in a row. In the sixth match, Lucknow Super Giants has set a target of 200 runs in front of the 5-time champion team Mumbai. Captain KL Rahul played an unbeaten innings of 103 runs. This is his third century in IPL history. In response, Mumbai has scored 86 runs for 3 wickets in 10 overs till the time of writing the news.
Talking about the bowling of Mumbai Indians, Malinga has retired. Trent Boult is playing for Rajasthan Royals. Apart from Bumrah, no other fast bowler has been able to show amazing in the current season. Earlier, Rajasthan opener batsman Jos Buttler also scored a century against Mumbai in the current season. For the first time in the history of IPL, when the first 2 centuries of a season have been scored against the same team. From this, the flaws of Mumbai’s bowling can be gauged.

In that match too, Rajasthan had scored a huge score of 193 runs. In reply, Mumbai’s team could score only 170 runs.
Jasprit Bumrah has also not been able to do anything special in the current season. He has got only 4 wickets in 6 matches. The economy has been of 7.56. The economy of all other fast bowlers is above 8.50. Because of this, the opposing teams have scored a big score against him. Even with the bat, captain Rohit Sharma has not been able to do anything amazing.
