MI's Unique IPL Record: Over 50% Success Against All Teams
Following their win over Delhi Capitals (DC) on Sunday night, Mumbai Indians (MI) have become the only team in the Indian Premier League (IPL) to have over 50 percent success rate against all eight competing teams this season.
Before Sunday's match, both teams had won 12 times against each other over the last 12 seasons. MI's success rate against DC is 52 percent, versus Chennai Super Kings 58 percent, against Royal Challengers Bangalore 64.3 percent, versus SunRisers Hyderabad 53.3 percent, against Kings XI Punjab 56 percent, vs Rajasthan Royals 52 percent, and against Kolkata Knight Riders it is 80 percent.
Abandoned games or games with no results have not been considered while evaluating the percentages.
The Mumbai-based franchise, led by Rohit Sharma, has won the IPL title most number of times, four. They are also the defending champions, having won it last year, beating Chennai Super Kings. At the halfway stage this season, although Mumbai and Delhi have an equal number of points, 10, at the top of the table, Sharma's team is ahead only on the net run rate.
Mumbai Indians beat Delhi Capitals by five wickets in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.
