Mumbai’s inherent love for cricket is also validated by Mumbai cricket team’s dominant success in Ranji Trophy – India’s premier domestic cricket competition. 

Mumbai cricket team has won more than 40 Ranji titles, most by any team in the history of Ranji Torphy. And of course there is Mumbai Indians, the prestigious IPL team representing the city of Mumbai, which is very passionately supported by people of Mumbai during all IPL matches. 

Lastly and most importantly the headquarters of Board of Control for Cricket in India is located in Mumbai itself, which only again validates that Mumbai is indeed the official home of Indian cricket.
