Mayank Markande Cricketer


Since he was as young as eight years old, Mayank Markande developed an interest in cricket and joined the NICS Cricket Academy in 2006. He was also part of his School’s Cricket Team as well. He studied at Yadavindra Public School in Patiala.

His early coaches have said that Mayank originally wanted to be a fast pace bowler, but it was on their suggestion that he turned to be a spinner on account of his lean body and lack of pace.

Mayank Markande made his debut in domestic cricket during the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy of 2017-18 in the T20 format. He later made his List-A debut in the 2017-18 Vijay Hazare Trophy playing for Punjab.

After a good season in the Indian Premier League, he was selected in the 2018-19 Deodhar Trophy to play for India B Squad along with a chance to play for India A in the quadrangular ODI Series.

Markande made his debut for Mumbai Indians in IPL in the 2018 edition of the game. He made his debut against Chennai Super Kings in the season opener where he took three wickets. 

He was selected for IPL by Mumbai Indians after an impressive show of skill in the pre-auction trials. He was bought by Mumbai for around 20 lakhs.

The biggest highlight of the Match for Mayank Markande has to be the Googly which got him the wicket of the legendary Indian Captain and CSK skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Dhoni was out on LBW unable to read Markande’s delivery.

Mayank Markande backed up his debut performance with another four wickets he took against the Sunrisers Hyderabad. He held the purple cap in his debut time for quite a significant period but had to finally relent it.

In the 2019 season, Mayank Markande barely received any chance due to the rise of fellow leg spinner Rahul Chahar and a mix of injuries and he did not have a large role to play in Mumbai Indians winning the IPL title.

After the season, Mumbai swapped him for Sherfane Rutherford with Delhi Capitals which released him before the auction and he was consequently bought by Rajasthan Royals for the 2020 edition of the IPL.

In February 2022, he was bought back by the Mumbai Indians in the auction for the 2022 Indian Premier League tournament. He was bought by Sunrisers Hyderabad for INR 50 lakhs in IPL 2023 auction.

Mayank has not played a lot of International Cricket due to being fairly young and having immense competition. He was selected for the 2018 ACC Emerging Teams Asia Cup. He made his T20I debut in 2019 against Australia. With wrist spinners being an important part of the game, it seems likely that in the future Mayank Markande will get a chance to play for the Indian Cricket Team as well.
