The very first Mumbai Indians badge was introduced in 2008 and featured a combination of an emblem with a sharp-edged weapon, and stylized lettering placed under it. The Chakra was drawn in a dark blue and gradient yellow-to-red palette, supported by the blue and red lettering with an internal white outline of the characters. The emblem was accompanied by two arched strokes in orange and green, the colors of the Indian flag, placed on the left, and framing the whole logo, making it complete.

The redesign of 2010 has refined and brightened up the logo of the Mumbai Indians cricket club, enlightening its color palette, and turning the Chakra in the other direction. If on the original version the sharp blades on the weapon were turned to the left, now the Sudharshan chakra is swirling to the right. The two strokes in orange and green got supported by two more, on the right of the emblem, and the lettering gained lighter blue gradients, with the contours of the characters refined and modernized.

In addition to the logo, designed in 2010, the club decided to create one more badge, with the shortened name, MI, to use along with the primary badge.

The badge looks very modern and bright, perfectly reflecting the character of the club and its roots.
