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.
