Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) fans have a reason to rejoice as their star pacer, Mayank Yadav, has returned to bowling after recovering from an injury. This comes as a significant boost for the team ahead of their clash against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Ekana stadium in Lucknow.

Mayank Yadav, a sensation in the world of pace bowling, had been nursing a hip injury. His absence was felt in the matches against Delhi Capitals (DC) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), both of which LSG lost. The team’s head coach, Justin Langer, had previously expressed hope that Mayank would soon return to bowling.

The rise of Mayank Yadav

In the 2024 IPL season, Mayank emerged as a remarkable talent for LSG, impressing cricket enthusiasts with his speed and skill. He made a memorable debut against Punjab Kings in Lucknow, where his pace was a force to be reckoned with. He clocked an impressive speed of 155.8 kmph, setting the stage for his future performances.

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.

Mayank’s 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. This rare achievement highlighted his immediate impact on the tournament.
