The Mumbai Cricket team represents the city of Mumbai in domestic Indian cricket. The home ground of this team is the Wankhede Stadium in South Mumbai which is close to Churchgate Railway Station. The team falls in the West Zone designation. In the past, it was called as the Bombay Cricket team. However, the name was altered when the city’s name was changed from Bombay to Mumbai.

In the state of Maharashtra, there are three cricket teams – the Mumbai Cricket team, the Vidarbha Cricket team and the Maharashtra Cricket team. The Mumbai team has played as a separate team from the rest of the state. As a matter of fact, such a division of teams would normally weaken most of the teams. On the contrary, Mumbai team has become of the most successful domestic teams in India.

In 1934-35, the Ranji Trophy final was won by Mumbai team by defeating Northern India. Vijay Merchant played in this final. In the next season, Mumbai was again victorious against Madras in the final. In the first 20 seasons in the Ranji Trophy, Mumbai won this trophy 7 times and thus quickly proved that it is one of the strongest teams in the championship. Mumbai team won 15 consecutive titles in the Ranji Trophy from 1958-59 to 1972-73. Out of the 22 titles from 1955-56 to 1976-77, Mumbai team won 20 titles and during this period it was a very dominant team. Up to the mid 1980s, the team consistently reached the final of the Ranji Trophy. The team was less successful in the later half of the 1980s. However, from 1993-94 to 2003-04, the Mumbai team won the Ranji Trophy 6 times.
