IPL 2024: Mayank Yadav boost for LSG as pace sensation returns to bowling

It’s good news for the LSG fans as pace sensation Mayank Yadav has shaken off the niggle he was carrying and has returned to bowling at full tilt. Mayank had gotten injured during the win against GT and missed the matches against DC and KKR. The Indian pacer was a big miss for Lucknow in both matches as they went on to lose both matches.

LSG has now shared a video of Mayank back in training. The Indian pacer was seen bowling under the watch of head coach Justin Langer and he didn’t seem to show any effects of the niggle. Mayank had suffered a hip injury and LSG decided to take the wise step of protecting the youngster by managing his workload. You can see the full video below:

Langer had said ahead of the DC game that Mayank had a small swelling in his hip and was hopeful that the pacer would be back to bowling again soon.

“But we had an MRI scan, and there is a very, very small swelling in there. So we are very hopeful he’ll start building himself up and be back bowling again soon,” Justin Langer said about Mayank’s injury.

How well has Mayank Yadav performed in IPL 2024?

In the IPL 2024 season, Mayank Yadav emerged as a sensational fast-bowling talent for LSG, captivating cricket enthusiasts with his remarkable speed and skill.

Making an unforgettable debut against Punjab Kings in Lucknow, Yadav’s pace was a force to be reckoned with, as he clocked an impressive 155.8 kmph, setting the stage for what was to come. His performance didn’t just stop there; in a subsequent match against Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB), he outdid himself by delivering the fastest ball of the tournament at a blistering 156.7 kmph. This feat not only surpassed his previous record but also solidified his reputation as one of the fastest bowlers in the history of the IPL.

Yadav’s exceptional ability to consistently bowl at speeds exceeding 150 kmph, coupled with his control over line and length, quickly made him a key player for LSG. His back-to-back three-wicket hauls in his debut matches placed him among an elite group of bowlers and earned him consecutive ‘Player of the Match’ awards, a rare achievement that highlighted his immediate impact on the tournament.

Mayank has 6 wickets in 3 matches so far from just 9 overs and will be raring to go against CSK, who LSG will be facing in their next two matches at Lucknow and Chennai on April 19 and 23.
