Rivals of domestic cricket clash in IPL!
Prerak Mankad himself disclosed his rivalry with Mayank Markandey after the match. He mentioned his and Mayank’s match in the post match presentation. Prerak, who became Player of the Match, said these things when he was asked about his batting.
He said, “I wanted to hit a shot against the spinners but I was not able to do so. I knew Mayank would try to get me out. We both have played a lot against each other in domestic cricket. So it was easy for me to take a chance against him.
It is true that against someone you have played against, whose strategies you are aware of, it is a bit easier to attack on the field and Prerak Mankad did the same thing. The result was that he became the hero of his team’s victory.
Prerak became the hero of the match, Mayank got 1 wicket
Prerak Mankad scored an unbeaten 64 off 45 balls with 7 fours and 2 sixes. This was his second IPL match this season. Earlier, when he got a chance to play for the first time, he remained unbeaten without opening an account.
He said that whatever team I am playing for, my intention is to score runs and contribute for it. LSG Management trusted me and gave me the opportunity and I did my job.
Here Prerak became the hero of the match and on the other side Mayank Markandeya playing for Sunrisers took only 1 wicket after spending 39 runs in 3 overs.
