The Mumbai Indians are definitely the best set of players in the Indian Premier League and managed to win five titles – more than any team in the league.

We’ll look at Sachin Tendulkar’s IPL history and how it began.
The consequences of Sachin Tendulkar’s leadership of the MI
However, the Mumbai Indians failed to create an impression under his leadership, and Sachin stepped down in 2012, handing over the job to Harbhajan Singh. The finest result for the Mumbai Indians under Sachin Tendulkar as captain occurred in the IPL 2010 season, where MI got to the final versus CSK.
Later, Rohit Sharma was selected as captain of the MI. Sachin played professionally until 2013 when he won the inaugural IPL title with the MI. He was a key player in the IPL during his career.
Tendulkar is already involved with Mumbai Indians as a coach and legend since his retirement from the league as well as the IPL, which has been a constant presence in the MI dressing room for numerous matches.

Sachin Tendulkar completed the lone milestone that escaped his remarkable career on Apr 16, 2011. Tendulkar struck his first-ever century in a T20 in the Indian Premier League for MI exactly ten years ago today.
Tendulkar smashed a century off 66 deliveries and remained unbeaten as MI scored 182/2 in their 20 overs against the Kochi Tuskers Kerala. In his 66-ball innings against the Kerala team, the Little Master hammered 12 boundaries and 3 sixes.
Sachin began his innings with Davy Jacobs, but Mumbai ended up losing Jacobs early, and Tendulkar was joined by Rayudu (53). The two gradually built their innings before raising the bar and taking on bowlers.
Tendulkar reached fifty on the first delivery of the 14th over, a single against Ravindra Jadeja to deep square leg. Tendulkar’s first fifty came off 43 balls, but then once he passed that mark, he hit the pedal and hit the other 50 runs off only 23 balls to record his first Twenty20 & IPL century.
Tendulkar’s 100 came off the final ball of the 20th over, and it arrived in a spectacular manner as he elevated his bat and took in the crowd at Wankhede Stadium.
