Mumbai have failed in the recent domestic tournaments. Be it the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy or the Vijay Hazare Trophy, Mumbai didn’t make it to the knockouts in 2021.
Ravi Shastri is not happy with Mumbai’s performance in the domestic circuit. The former head coach of Team India spoke about Himachal Pradesh’s title win in India’s 50-over competition and Pondicherry’s victory over Mumbai. The 59-year-old questioned the failure of one of the most decorated teams in the history of the Indian domestic cricket.
“I sometimes see Pondicherry beating Mumbai, not that they are an ordinary team, any team can beat any team on a day, but it tells you that there is a problem somewhere. When you see a team like Himachal winning the final, and Mumbai’s below-par display, then you start asking questions,” said Ravi Shastri, while speaking as a chief guest on Sunday at a prize distribution function in Mumbai as quoted by the circle of cricket.
“I get the feeling a lot of cricketers who play for Mumbai these days take things for granted. They think that when we have a Mumbai stamp, then we can win anywhere, but this doesn’t happen,” he added.
