‘He Told Me That I Do Have A Lot Of Potential As A Batter’, SRH Spinner Funniest Claim On Hemang Badani

The SRH leg spinner, Mayank Markande made a remarkable entry into the cricket during the 2018 Indian Premier League. He then played for Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians where he claimed 15 wickets in 14 matches with an impressive average of 24.53 and a strike rate of 17.60. After that, in February 2019, Markande earned his first international call for India and played T20I against the mighty Australia.

However, even after an impressive start to the T20 career, the bowler got the chance to play only in six matches in three years which are 2019, 2021 and 2022. But, in the IPL 2023, Sunrisers Hyderabad used this bowler as their trump card and he grabbed 12 wickets in 10 matches with a decent economy of 7.89.

In a fresh interview, Markande was questioned about whether he had made any huge change to his bowling pattern. Replying to this answer, the bowler said that he does not believe in changing the bowling action or drilling session but he just grabbed all the opportunities he got from the management.

While having an exclusive interview with CricketNext, Markande said, “I didn’t make any changes in particular in my bowling. It was just about an opportunity. Earlier, I wasn’t getting the chance but this time I got the opportunity and fortunately, I was able to capitalize on it.”

Mayank Markande says that Hemang Badani, who is one of the prime staff of SRH also suggested him to focus on his batting as he is a good hitter of the ball.

“We also had Hemang (Badani) Sir there. He told me that I do have a lot of potential as a batter as well and further asked me to focus more on the skill. I will start working on the batting bit during the off season. I have been told that I possess the batting skills too quite a few times but I don’t really work on them (laughs).”
