Mumbai Indians are the most successful team in Indian Premier League (IPL) history with five titles to their name. However, they could not find their mojo in the 2021 season as they finished out of the playoffs race and could not register a hat-trick of title triumphs having won back-to-back editions in 2019 & 2020 respectively.

As MI look forward to having a memorable 2022 season, the multiple-time champions have officially announced their principal sponsor. Taking to their official social media handles, the Mumbai Indians retained players including the likes of number three batter Suryakumar Yadav, pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah, and, skipper Rohit Sharma went on to welcome credit card challenger Slice as their new principal sponsor.

“There is definitely zero correlation between a financial product and a cricket team. However, there are a lot of similarities between the two teams who are relentlessly seeking the championship. Being the most successful team in the IPL with 5 titles to its name, Mumbai Indians inspires not only millions of its fans, but also entrepreneurs like me with the team’s passion, focus, and persistent spirit. It’s the shared hunger for winning and excellence that brings us together.

“With cricket being at the heart of Indian culture, we will together bring more excitement to this vibrant culture as well as take it to all the cricket lovers around the world”, said Rajan Bajaj, Founder-CEO, slice as quoted by MI’s official website.

Months before the IPL 2022 auction, Mumbai Indians announced four retentions as Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Suryakumar Yadav, and Caribbean all-rounder Kieron Pollard. While Rohit has been offered a sum of INR 16 crores, Bumrah, Yadav, and, Pollard have been offered INR 12, 8 & 6 crores respectively on retention.

It now remains to be seen which star players would be brought on board by the Mumbai-based franchise in next month’s mega auction.
