Mumbai Indians (MI) have had a forgettable campaign in the 2022 Indian Premier League (IPL) and unless they win their last game of the season by a massive margin, they will finish last on the table for the first time in history since the league’s Inception in 2008.
So far, they have won just 3 games in 13 in the 2022 IPL and have six points on the board. In the ongoing season, no team has used more players than them. A total of 22 players have featured in MI’s playing XI in IPL 2022 as their on-field struggles have forced them to try new options and experiment with their combinations.
Ahead of MI’s final game of the season vs DC, Arjun Tendulkar’s name has been trending on Twitter. Fans of the five-time Champions are calling for his inclusion in the playing XI in MI’s last game of the season vs Delhi Capitals (DC). Despite MI using so many players, Arjun is still to get a game so far. Some also made hilarious memes on what his selection could mean for the playoff race.
