Mavi impressed many with his performance in 2018 U-19 World Cup in New Zealand with his brisk pace and ability to swing the ball. As a result, he was roped in by KKR for INR 3 crores in the players auctions held in late January at Bengaluru. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Mavi in U-19 WC</strong> <p></p> <p></p>Mavi scalped 9 wickets from 6 matches at 18.89 in the World Cup. He clocked 146 kph in almost every over. However, he will be aware of the challenge to retain the same intensity in a mega event like IPL. While cricketers like Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya have earned India caps through rollicking IPL performances, Mavi will want to replicate his seniors as well. <p></p> <p></p>Mavi is yet to play domestic cricket (List A, First-Class or T20). In an interview with <i>PTI, he </i>expressed his thoughts: I will focus match by match and will take it as a stepping stone. Post-IPL, the main focus will be on domestic cricket. I am yet to make my debut in domestic cricket. IPL is an opportunity to grab limelight if you do well. It becomes easier from here on, if you do well here. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Will he make it big?</strong> <p></p> <p></p>Mavi is excited to share the dressing room with Mitchell Johnson, Vinay Kumar and other pacers: I will try to learn a lot from them. It will obviously help me. Will he curb SRH's winning streak on Saturday?
