Another Mumbai youngster is now stealing the show for Mumbai Indians in his Indian Premier League debut, Mayank Markande. In the very first over that he bowled, he took the wicket of the dangerous Ambati Rayudu who was looking dangerous. Ambati scored 22 runs of 19 balls and was looking to cruise the Chennai Super Kings innings but with his wicket, things have turned around. M S Dhoni comes to bat and the scorecard reads 45 for the loss of 3 wickets. The first free hit of IPL 2018 could not be converted by Kedhar Jadhav. Mayank Markande, in his second over claimed the most crucial wicket of Chennai Super Kings and that is of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. It looks like that he is going to be the next bowling sensation in Indian Premier League 2018. Mumbai has not ran out of tricks and like defending champions, they have started the second innings of the match and have put Chennai to a trail by fire.
