Watch: Ishan Kishan Hilariously Sledges IPL Teammate Mayank Markande In Duleep Trophy Final
Mayank Markande scored a fighting half-century to help India Green post a competitive first innings total in Duleep Trophy final.
India Red and India Green are currently battling it out in the Duleep Trophy final at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. The first day of the match was majorly affected by rain as only 49 overs were bowled. In the match, the India Green top order failed to contribute with the bat as they finished at 147 for eight at stumps on Day 1. Mayank Markande remained unbeaten on 32 to keep the India Red bowlers at bay. In the last over of the first day, India Red wicketkeeper Ishan Kishan started sledging Markande, his teammate from the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise, Mumbai Indians.
Ishan Kishan was helping his captain to place the long-off fielder in the right position for Mayank Markande when he sledged the 21-year-old spinner.
