“It’s not a mistake to make a mistake, but it’s a mistake to repeat the same mistake” goes a famous saying about committing mistakes in life. Humans make mistakes and that’s normal but when they start repeating it, that becomes problematic. The same has happened with a senior cricket journalist. While hosting a show, the journalist included Mumbai Indians in the list of teams to not have won an IPL title since the inception of the league.
While talking about the teams to not have won an IPL title, the journalist named Mumbai Indians alongside Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals. This came as a shocker for the franchise’s as well as IPL fans as the team is the most successful team in the tournament history. Having won the title for a record five times, Mumbai Indians are the most successful team in the IPL. And this was the reason behind fans’ shocking reactions on the internet.

With the video going viral on Twitter, a lot of users started trolling the journalist. Some found it funny while some looked displeased with the mistake. “These guys are either burdened or not taking the talk shows seriously or taking audience for granted….One hour ago Rahul Rawat said in sports today that Rohit Sharma will walk Jadeja in Opening match toss,” wrote one of the users on Twitter.

Another day, another mistake. Vikrant Gupta and SportsTak is making a habit of it. I was surprised to see him not saying anything when a "cricket expert" called Sheldon Jackson a foreigner the other day.

However, the journalist also received some support as a few users pointed out that the video may be forged and out of context.
Bro It was out of context thing he never mentioned that Mumbai Indians haven't won IPL title yet there wasn't any specific so no credibility in this video

I think he was taking about first five years of IPL

Earlier, on a previous show on SportsTak, fans were left baffled as one of the experts called Sheldon Jackson a foreigner. While counting the overseas options available with KKR for IPL 2022, the expert counted Sheldon Jackson as well. Notably, the Saurashtra cricketer also replied to this by sharing the map of his state.
