The team, departing Mumbai a day post their IPL 2024 clash against Rajasthan Royals, witnessed the likes of Kishan and Kartikeya, alongside two other MI players, facing consequences for their infractions.?

The punishment jumpsuits, a signature move by the MI management for rule violations, made a return with a video captioned, "Punishment jumpsuits are back."

How Mumbai Indians discipline their players

The MI team management employs a distinctive method for disciplining players who violate rules such as tardiness to practice or failing to adhere to hotel call times. They create a special outfit each season and require players to wear it throughout the day as a consequence for breaking team rules.??

During the IPL 2023 season, Mumbai Indians decided to address tardiness within their team with a touch of humor. When young players Arshad Khan and Hrithik Shokeen arrived late for a meeting, they were given a unique penalty: donning special punishment jumpsuits during the team's travel to their next game.

A few weeks later, another young player, Nehal Wadhera, found himself in a similar situation for arriving late to a team batters' meeting. However, instead of jumpsuit treatment, Wadhera faced a more lighthearted consequence: he was seen wearing cricket pads at the airport, as captured in a video shared by the franchise.?

Mumbai Indians' IPL 2024 misery continues

MI suffered their third consecutive defeat in the IPL 2024, succumbing to Rajasthan Royals at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on April 1. Pace bowler Trent Boult led the charge with figures of 3 for 22, orchestrating a commanding six-wicket win for Rajasthan.?

Boult's impressive left-arm pace restricted the hosts to 125-9, a target comfortably chased down by Rajasthan with 27 balls to spare, securing their third win of the season in as many matches.

Mumbai, led by Hardik Pandya in lieu of veteran Rohit Sharma, faced their third loss, keeping them rooted at the bottom of the 10-team table. Pandya encountered a challenging evening, marked by boos from the home fans during the toss, prompting presenter Sanjay Manjrekar's intervention to "behave."

Reflecting on the defeat, Pandya remarked, "Yes, a tough night, we didn't start the way we wanted to start." Despite top-scoring with 34 runs for Mumbai, Pandya acknowledged the significance of his wicket in the team's setback, stating, "But my wicket allowed them to get back more into the game, I needed to do a lot more."

Meanwhile, in-form Rajasthan batter Riyan Parag displayed his prowess with an unbeaten 54 off 39 balls, clinching his second consecutive fifty and steering his team to victory with two sixes and a four. The dominance extended to Rajasthan's bowling unit, with Boult's fiery opening spell paving the way for Yuzvendra Chahal's 3 for 11 with his leg-spin.

With five-time champions Mumbai languishing at the bottom of the points table, they remain the only team yet to secure a victory in the ongoing season.
