Rising to the top is hard, but staying there is even tougher, suggests the trailer of ‘Cricket Fever: Mumbai Indians’.
The trailer of Netflix’s documentary-series produced by Condé Nast Entertainment Cricket Fever: Mumbai Indians have hit the Internet on Wednesday which is based on the journey of three-time Indian Premier League (IPL) winning team ‘Mumbai Indians’ during the year 2018 in which they failed to defend their title. Netflix India announced the trailer release of Cricket Fever: Mumbai Indians in the most interesting way possible. Netflix India replied to an interesting conversation between Mumbai Indian captain Rohit Sharma and Yuvraj Singh (who is the latest addition to the team) on Twitter. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that the trailer is a perfect amalgamation of nail-biting moments and some never-seen-before drama, which will incite your curiosity to a different level altogether. The trailer begins with the visuals of the 2017 IPL finale, which was won by Mumbai Indians and touches upon the challenges that the team had to face, both on and off the field. The trailer reveals tense, off-pitch moments, terse conversations in locker rooms and emotional outbursts by the owner, Reliance Industries. “I’ve got so many opinions. So many people yapping in my years. What do I take from that?” says captain Rohit Sharma in the trailer. It also highlights the most important moments for Mumbai Indians, which include the team’s historic win in 2017, captain Rohit Sharma’s roaring emotions, green room politics, the frenzy among fans and of course, Sachin Tendulkar’s dose of motivation to all the all the players. In the words of the makers, “Winning the championship is hard, retaining it is the hardest“. It will be an eight-episode show which will unfold the never seen behind-the-scenes and will also highlight the tough backroom story of the then-defending champions and how they coped with the weight of expectations from all around, including from the passionate fans of the franchise from Mumbai. It will be globally released on March 1, 2019.
