Michael Vaughan says “Mumbai Indians has lost confidence” in the Indian Premier League. Vaughan believes the root cause of Mumbai Indians’ dip in form in the Indian Premier League 2021. It is their batting engine room’s lack of confidence. Vaughan’s remarks came whereas talking to Cricbuzz. After MI’s overwhelming overcome to Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday. He said the Mumbai batting line-up, especially the center order. It is confronting intense travails within the T20 series. Where a turnaround from the unfortunate form is the most difficult.
“Particularly that engine room for the Mumbai Indians has lost the confidence, they haven’t lost completely because they are all very good but just for this split second in their careers, a few of them have lost confidence,” Michael Vaughan said.
“I think what it shows is that T20 cricket is the one format where if you lose your confidence as a batting group. It’s the hardest to get back into form because you don’t have the time, that element of the 50-over game where you can bat 10-15 balls or Test cricket where you can play for time. In T20 cricket you still have to be proactive and play your shots and then fortune might not go your way and you lose more confidence,” he added.

Mumbai Indians middle-order couldn’t capitalize on a brilliant. It starts from the openers. None of the batsmen from no.3 onwards scored in double digits. Also, with the innings collapsing from 79-1 to 111-10.
“MI is the only team that could possibly come out of this hole,” Michael Vaughan said.
Lastly, Mumbai Indians now need to win all of their remaining four games. Also, to directly qualify for the playoffs. Vaughan believes the five-time champions are the only ones. It can do that, but it won’t be easy unless the batting group regains.
