Mayank Yadav‘s name will be etched in IPL history after a remarkable debut for Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) against Punjab Kings (PBKS) in Match 11 of the 2024 season. The young pacer not only terrorized batters with raw pace but also played a pivotal role in securing his team’s victory.

Mayank Yadav shines on IPL debut

Yadav sent shivers down the spines of batsmen and fans alike, unleashing the fastest delivery of the IPL season so far, clocked at a staggering 155.8 kmph. He consistently pushed the speedometer past the 150 kmph mark, showcasing his immense potential and ability to light up the tournament.

His impact wasn’t limited to just raw pace. Mayank delivered a fiery spell, claiming a crucial three-wicket haul for a mere 27 runs in his four overs. His victims included the dangerous top-order batters, Jonny Bairstow and Prabhsimran Singh, both deceived by his cleverly disguised short deliveries. Later, he added Jitesh Sharma to his list, who skied a short ball for an easy dismissal.

Before Yadav’s bowling heroics, the home team laid a strong foundation with the bat, posting a competitive total of 199/8. Quinton de Kock‘s well-made 54 provided stability at the top, while cameos from Nicholas Pooran (42) and Krunal Pandya (43 not-out) propelled them towards a formidable total.

The LSG bowling attack tightened the screws, restricting Punjab to a final score of 178/5, handing Lucknow a comfortable 21-run victory.

In a performance that will be replayed for years to come, Mayank walked away with the Player of the Match award on his IPL debut. His exceptional bowling display, including the fastest ball of the season and three crucial wickets, has certainly made him a name to watch in the IPL.
