5 times champion Mumbai-based franchise is first ranking. The Ambani-owned enterprise is expected to grow in the following seasons, with a worth of $1.3 billion or INR 9968 crore.

When the BCCI launched the IPL in 2007, the Mumbai Indians were the most expensive franchise, having been sold for $111.9 million to India’s largest conglomerate, Reliance Industries, via its 100% subsidiary Indiawin Sports.

MI has won the IPL title five times in a row 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2020 making it the league’s most successful team. The franchise has included players such as Lasith Malinga, Rohit Sharma, Harbhajan Singh, Jayasuriya, Surya Kumar Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Ishan Krisan, and others who have played an essential role in the team’s success throughout the years.

The Rohit Sharma-led club is poised to rebuild itself with a fresh attitude and strategy for IPL 2023, with master blaster Sachin Tendulkar as the franchise’s emblem. The franchise is confident with its players trained under former South Africa wicketkeeper-batter Mark Boucher as head coach under veteran all-rounder Kieron Pollard for batting, former Auckland cricketer James Pamment for fielding, and Shane Bond for bowling.

Mumbai Indians will increase in the next seasons, with an operating income of $5.5 million and revenue of $33 million, creating a good investment opportunity for potential investors.

MS Dhoni captains the franchise, which is led by former New Zealand captain Stephen Fleming, former IPL Orange Cap winner Michael Hussey as batting coach, West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo as bowling coach, and Rajiv Kumar as fielding coach for IPL 2023. With three wins and two losses, the Dhoni-led yellow army will remain a force to be reckoned with in terms of performance and financial success.
