Subsequently, Maynank’s coaches, Munish Bali and Sodhi, advised Mayank to bowl leg-spin instead of fast bowling. According to his coach, Bali, Mayank’s physique at that time wasn’t up to the level to that of a fast-bowler, so, he insisted him to start spin bowling. This change turned out to be an excellent decision, and so far it works well for him.

Then, his consistently excellent performances at the junior level cricket got him selected in the under-16s state team of Punjab. And later, he played for Punjab and India under-19s team.
