However, despite his heroics, MI is yet to taste success in this eleventh edition of the cash-rich professional domestic Twenty20 league.

Mayank lauded skipper Rohit Sharma and admitted that he didn’t tell a lot and asked to stick to the basics.

It was a great feeling for me, my first season, feeling very happy. He (Rohit) didn’t tell me a lot, just asked me to stick to the basics,” Mayank said following Indians game against Hyderabad.

Meanwhile, he took to micro-blogging website Twitter – to express his feelings on his dream debut.

“Purple cap after 2 games. This dream couldn’t get any better. #IPL2018 #CricketMeriJaan,” he tweeted.

He lauded Harbhajan for helping him out and putting instilling a positive attitude in him.

This was the first year that I had the opportunity of meeting Harbhajan Singh. He supported me a lot when I was playing List A games for Punjab. He helped me remain in a positive frame of mind throughout and would often speak to me about bowling plans” Markande said.
