Mumbai Indians is one of the most successful franchises in the world of cricket. Like IPL, Mumbai Indians franchise has maintained its dominance in all the cricketing leagues being played across the world. Being a part of such a successful team is a big thing for the players.

He admitted on Thursday that playing for the Mumbai Indians franchise is very stressful.
What did the MI captain say?

This franchise has been associated with T20 cricket for almost a decade and everyone knows that Mumbai is probably one of the best franchises.
Big responsibility on the captain
Puran further said that it is just about accepting the challenge. As a group we try our best to be successful as much as possible. Puran said that yes, representing and playing for Mumbai is very stressful. But this is also its beauty. Players accept that challenge. We as a group are ready for this tournament. We are excited and we want to succeed, but we know it won’t be easy. Let us tell you that under the captaincy of Puran, the Mumbai franchise had won the American Cricket League MLC, now he has the responsibility of ILT20.
