The Indian Premier League 2018 fever is on, with each day coming with more surprises. After all, what’s an IPL season without its thrilling matches and at least a few comebacks? When we think of this, one franchise that definitely knows a thing or two about turning their fortune around 360 degrees is Mumbai Indians. The franchise is only known for being the three-time champions, but they are also the team with the most drastic comebacks.
The Mumbai Indians are known to up their game, when it comes to the second half of an Indian Premier League, and that’s a habit of the team. The recent evidence of the team’s performance was seen on Wednesday evening when the Mumbai Indians inflicted the heaviest of defeats on Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata. All thanks to Ishan Kishan, 19, the left-hander, who is the toast of the VIVO IPL. With Ishan as the powerhouse, Mumbai Indians looked like a team on a mission to make it to the playoffs as they won comfortably against Kolkata Knightriders and moved into the top 4.
We don’t know it is just because of the stellar performance by the franchise or prayers by their owners or fans. Yes, you read it right- prayers. A video is doing the rounds on Whatsapp claiming “Why Mumbai Indians Are Winning”. The video clip has Mumbai team co-owner Nita Ambani doing prayers and chanting, during the match. Nita can be seen sitting with a friend of hers, who after she completes her prayer, tells her the score and Nita smiles.
Interestingly, going by the video, we are quite confused what is making the Mumbai Indians team win back to back. It’s surely the team’s performance but we can’t but ignore the prayers done by Nita Ambani.
