In the 11th season of IPL, Mumbai has played just two matches so far, but the most influential player in both of these matches has been the 20-years-old bowler of this team–Mayank Markande. Even in the low scoring match against Hyderabad, this young bowler presented his best bowling spell and got the hearty wishes from Mumbai Skipper Rohit Sharma. Mumbai Indians scored 147 runs in their second match against Hyderabad. Hyderabad opener Saha and Dhawan gave their team a good start and built a partnership of 62 runs for the first wicket. After seeing the duo’s batting, Rohit Sharma finally gave Munak to the 7th over after power play, Mayank Markande broke this pair.

Mayank did not disappoint captain and in the fifth bowl of his first over, he gave Mumbai the first breakthrough of the game. After that Mayank bowled in 7th, 11th and 13th over and took one wicket in each over. Mayank lbw opener Wriddhiman Saha for 22 runs in the fifth ball of innings in the 7th over. After that, in the 2nd over of his spell and in the 9th over of the match, he got the Hyderabad opener Shikhar Dhawan, who scored a scintillating 45. After this, Mayank made Manish Pandey his third hunt on 11th over of the innings.
