Mayank Yadav

It only took two games for Mayank Yadav in the Indian Premier League to become the proud owner of an elite record in the tournament.

After warming the bench for the entire 2022 season and missing the 2023 season due to injury, Mayan Yadav finally made his debut last week during the match between Lucknow Super Giants and Punjab Kings and was quick to announce his arrival. The youngster shocked the cricket world with his ferocious spell against the Punjab-based team.

Chasing 200, Punjab Kings were on top after Shikhar Dhawan and Jonny Bairstow shared a century-plus stand. However, PBKS’s hopes were made and dusted once Mayank Yadav completed the four overs off him. He got three crucial wickets and terrorized the Punjab batsmen by regularly clocking around 150 kmph. One of his deliveries was recorded at 155.8 km/h while bowling the fastest delivery of IPL 2024.

Mayank Yadav creates history:

Mayank Yadav played the same way against Royal Challengers Bengaluru on Tuesday (April 2). In his second over, he also broke his record for fastest bowling of IPL 2024. After bowling a 155.8 kmph delivery on debut, the Delhi pacer bowled one that was recorded at 156. .7km/h.

He touched the 155 km/h mark twice against RCB and broke the record of bowling the most deliveries over 155 km/h in the IPL. Mayank Yadav has made three deliveries at over 155 km/h. Previously, the record was jointly held by Umran Malik and Anrich Nortje.

Talking about his performance against RCB, Mayank Yadav put up another impressive display. He finished his four-over spell with impressive figures of 3 for 14. In his first over, he dismissed Glenn Maxwell for a duck before castling Cameron Green for a beauty. Later, he also dismissed the well-set Rajat Patidar to leave RCB reeling at 103 for 6 in the 15th over.

Early in the game, LSG scored 181/5 in the allotted 20 overs after being asked to bat first. Quinton de Kock led the charge with the bat for LSG, scoring 81 off 56 balls before Nicholas Pooran added the finishing touches by smashing five sixes in the last two overs.
