Historically, MI has faced challenges in their opening matches. Over the past ten years, they have consistently failed to secure a win in their debut games. This trend began in 2013 with a close loss to RCB and continued with several defeats in subsequent years, casting a shadow over the Mumbai-based team's initial performances.

Despite their shaky start in opening matches, MI has demonstrated remarkable resilience throughout the tournament's history. They have lifted the IPL trophy five times, proving that early setbacks do not necessarily determine the overall season's outcome.
