IPL 2024: Mumbai Indians make history, become first team to win 150 T20 matches

Mumbai Indians have scripted history by becoming the first team to win 150 games in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Their 150th victory came against the Delhi Capitals on Sunday, as they defeated the Rishabh Pant-led team by 29 runs at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

Mumbai managed to defend the target of 235 runs courtesy of some big-hitting from openers Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan and then later by Tim David and Romario Shepherd down the order. DC were restricted to 205/8 in their 20 overs.

Mumbai Indians’ record of 150 wins does not account for victories achieved in Super Overs following tied matches. Taking into consideration matches played in both the IPL and the now-defunct Champions League T20, MI has played  273 matches, winning 150 and losing 117, with two matches ending in no result. 

Chennai Super Kings is at the second place with 148 victories in its history. Overall in its history, CSK has played 253 T20 matches, winning 148, and losing 101, two matches have ended in no result and five-time champions have lost two matches in Super Over after a tied regular game.

At third place is the Indian team, which has 140 wins in 219 matches if excluding their four Super Over wins. Six of their matches have ended in a no result, one ended in a tie and 68 ended in defeats.

This win also marks MI’s 50th victory at Wankhede Stadium, the most by any IPL franchise at a single venue. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) secure the second position with 48 wins at Eden Gardens, followed by CSK with 47 wins at Chepauk Stadium.

Notably, Mumbai Indians have won all 14 matches in which they defended totals of 200 runs or more.

In the ongoing IPL, the Hardik Pandya-led side is sitting at eighth place in the points table with a win and three losses, giving them two points. DC is at the bottom, with a win in five matches, giving them two points.
