However, their next two games against DC and PBKS ended up in losses. Mumbai then went on to make a solid comeback as they trounced RR and arch-rivals CSK in successive games before the IPL 2021 was called off. At the time of the IPL suspension, Mumbai Indians were placed at the fourth spot in the IPL 2021 points table with four wins and three losses from seven games.
