India Red wicket-keeper batsman Ishan Kishan had a lot to say to India Green bowler Mayank Markande when the latter was batting. Kishan asked the fielders to come within the circle as he tempted Markande to go for the big shot. The wicketkeeper said on the stump mic that Markande will not be able to hit the ball and thus the fielders should come in.

Kishan said that Markande doesn’t possess the power to clear the field and he won’t be able to hit a big shot. However, Kishan efforts went in vain as Markande didn’t fall in the trap and played with maturity.
It was hilarious from Ishan Kishan.
In fact, Mayank Markande was the top run-scorer for the India Green as he scored a fine knock of 76 runs. The right-hander scored his runs from 126 balls with the help of seven fours. However, India Green could only manage 231 runs on the board after their captain Faiz Fazal won the toss and decided to bat first.
“Iske hath mei jaan nahi hai. Utna nahi pahochega isse (He doesn’t have the strength to hit that far),” Kishan’s jibe was recorded on the stump mic.
No batsman could get going for the India Green as they folded for 231 runs. Mayank Markande and Ankit Rajpoot were able to add 59 runs for the fifth wicket partnership.
India Red’s Jaydev Unadkat was the pick of the bowlers as the southpaw seamer scalped four wickets. Sandeep Warrier and Avesh Khan bagged two wickets apiece whereas Akshay Sarwate took one wicket.
On the other hand, Ishan Kishan and Mayank Markande share a good bonhomie with each other as both of them have played for Mumbai Indians in the IPL. Mayank Markande is now traded to Delhi Capitals for IPL 2020. Kishan had also scored a fine fifty for India A against South Africa A.
