Mumbai Indians Trade Mayank Markande With Delhi Capitals’ Sherfane Rutherford

Mumbai Indians owner Akash Ambani said that it was a hard decision to release Markande, who had emerged as an upcoming talent in 2018 but did not have the same impact in 2019, with Rahul Chahar coming to the fore. Playing for Guyana Amazon Warriors in his debut season of the Caribbean Premier League previous year, Rutherford made a mark against Trinbago Knight Riders, smashing a 13-ball 45, with six sixes and a four, in a match-winning partnership with Shimron Hetmyer. The leg spinner would then go on to impress throughout the season, ending the season as their third highest wicket taker for MI with 15 scalps.

Commenting on the move, MI owner Akash Ambani said: "We wish Mayank the very best for his future".

However, an untimely injury coupled with Rahul Chahar's eye-catching performances meant that Markande found himself mostly on the bench in the recent season of the IPL. "We were fortunate to have spotted and nurtured him early", Ambani said in a statement. Admitting that it was a hard decision for the management, Ambani said that the leggie will always remain a part of the Mumbai Indians family.

In the 2019 IPL season, Markande only got chance in the three matches for MI and took a single wicket for his side.

Roadside explosion kills at least 34 civilians in Afghanistan
The report apparently referred to civilians killed during Afghan and USA military operations against insurgents. He also said the United Nations had drastically undercounted the number of civilians killed by the Taliban.

Both Mayank and Sherfane are young exciting prospects in the IPL, and the swap deal serves to enhance both teams' strength.

The 20-year old cricketer didn't score big runs or grabbed a lot of wickets but put on display signs that impressed one and all with respect to his skills in the T20 format.

Capitals made it to the playoffs in 2019 for the first time in seven seasons before losing to Chennai Super Kings in Qualifier 2. Their lead spinner has been Amit Mishra, with Sandeep Lamichhane and Axar Patel playing back-up.
