Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma heads list for most IPL title wins – in pictures

Opening batsman has now won five trophies, one with the defunct Deccan Chargers and four with Mumbai Indians

Rohit Sharma continues to be out on his own when it comes to being an integral part of an Indian Premier League title-winning team. In fact, he has been captain on four of those five occasions.

He first got his hands on the trophy in 2009 after Adam Gilchrist's now-defunct Deccan Chargers beat Royal Challengers Bangalore in the final.

Mumbai's run of four titles began in 2013 after Rohit was named captain. They avenged the 2010 result by beating Chennai and repeated the feat two years later. The India vice-captain won the title for a fourth time when the Indians edged out Rising Pune Supergiant in 2017.The opener then moved to Mumbai Indians where he missed out on back-to-back titles as Sachin Tendulkar-led Mumbai were narrowly beaten by Chennai Super Kings, captained by MS Dhoni. It was the start of a blossoming rivalry between the two franchises as they went on to meet three more times in the summit clash.

While Rohit is in the lead, some of his Mumbai teammates have earned the distinction of lifting multiple trophies as well. We have put together a photo gallery which includes players who have been champions at least three times.
