IPL 2018: Mayank Markande Thanks Mumbai Indians for Giving Him the Opportunity to be Part of IPL 

IPL 2018: Mayank Markande Thanks Mumbai Indians for Giving Him the Opportunity to be Part of IPL
Mayank Markande says he is delighted with the opportunity granted by the Mumbai Indians in this year's IPL.

The 11th edition of the IPL got underway on 7th April, and we saw a nail-biting contest between arch-rivals Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians.

In the end, it was a stupendous knock by Dwayne Bravo which eventually helped CSK seal an improbable victory. He smashed 68 off a mere 30 deliveries which included three fours and seven sixes.

From a hopeless situation, it was Bravo who ensured Chennai clawed their way back into the game. Eventually, it was a six and a four from Kedar Jadhav which finished off the job for the two-time champions.

Despite the loss, Mumbai Indians would surely look to take a lot of positives from the match. They were in control of proceedings for the majority of the game.

However, Bravo had other ideas, as he dashed Mumbai’s hopes within a matter of few deliveries. Earlier, it was a defining inning of 41 off 22 deliveries by Krunal Pandya which ensured Mumbai reached a competitive total of 165 on the board.

Suryakumar Yadav also chipped in with a brilliant 43 off 28 deliveries. Chennai began well, but the loss of both openers pegged them badly.

20-year old Mayank Markande got introduced to the attack, and he made an immediate impact by removing Ambati Rayudu with a brilliant delivery. He would have got another one of Kedar Jadhav had Rohit Sharma gone for the review, but it wasn’t to be.

He came back strongly in the next over and removed the former Indian skipper with a slider. It skidded on and struck Dhoni plumb in front of the stumps.

Despite the umpire giving it in favour of the batting team, replays showed the ball would have crashed on to the middle stump. The young Markande finished his spell with the wicket of Deepak Chahar. He eventually finished with impressive figures of 3/24 in his four overs spell.

It was an emotional moment for a boy who was only ten years old when the IPL began a decade ago.

Taking to his twitter handle, Markande thanked Mumbai Indians for giving him the opportunity to realize his dream. He was gutted with the result but hoped the team would bounce back stronger.

“I was 10 years old when IPL began a decade ago. From the dream of playing in the tournament to making a dream debut, I have cherished every moment of my journey. Thank you @mipaltan for giving me the opportunity. Gutted with the result but we can turn it around. #IPL2018,” Markande wrote.
