Ipl is on their end this season but Mumbai Indians now all depend on the other team's performances and their batting which hasn't par with their expectation yet is a big concern.

Mumbai Indians is the most successful team of IPL containing three winning titles to their name. Mumbai Indians known for their strong come back and they are on the same path again in the 11th season of IPL, After losing 5 of 6 starting matches in this season they are proving themselves with the strong comeback again.

But what is the biggest concern for them in upcoming matches?

The biggest concern for them is the inconsistency of few players on the top order, while Surya Kumar Yadav is the only consistent out there who has bee taking care of the team so far. He has scored 435 runs in 11 matches and he is at the top in terms of making runs for MI this season. But Mumbai is definitely looking for the level of consistency from Lewis, Ishan, and Rohit also as upcoming matches would be a Do or Die situation for the team.

Ishan Kishan might be in a relief now after the last inning he has played but he needs to carry on the flow for upcoming matches. Evin Lewis who has a reputation as the hard striking batsman on the go is also unable to deliver the faith to the team and their fans. He has just scored 265 runs in 10 matches which is surely not his kind of playing style.

​Raw-Hit Sharma one of the biggest stars of IPL and the only player in IPL who was the part of IPL winning team for 4 times, one as the part of Deccan Chargers in 2008 and since then he has been an integral part of the Mumbai Indians and has won 3 titles for the Mumbai and one in Champions league in the year 2013 when they clinched two titles in the same year.

Now MI is in the same phase again and the team desperately need a strong impactful inning by Rohit.

Rohit has just scored 267 runs in 10 matches which is not at par with his reputation in IPL. He is still not sure about his batting position whether to bat at number 3 or 4 where an opening order will be fixed for Yadav and Lewis.

Mumbai Indians fans are very ardent to see their team playing in playoffs and win a title from there then. We hope that Mumbai's top order will get on the track as soon as they surely don't want to take any chance with their possibility to get into playoffs.
