Mayank’s journey to this point started when LSG bought him for INR 20 Lakhs during the 2023 season. Sadly, he couldn’t play that season because of an injury. But in 2024, he made an incredible start against the Punjab Kings (PBKS). In this game, he bowled very fast, reaching 155.8 kmph, and also took three wickets while only giving away 27 runs. This great performance won him the Man of the Match award and showed everyone what he could do.

In his next game against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Mayank did even better. He took three wickets again but this time gave away only 14 runs. He also bowled even faster, reaching 156.7 kmph. He won the Man of the Match award again, proving he was a key player for his team.

What’s really impressive is how Mayank compares to other fast bowlers in IPL history. In just two games, he bowled three balls over 155 kmph. This is more than other fast bowlers like Umran Malik and Anrich Nortje, who took many more games to do something similar. This shows just how special Mayank’s talent is.

Mayank Yadav plays cricket for Delhi in domestic matches and now for LSG in the IPL. He started playing professional cricket in 2022 and has played in different types of matches, taking many wickets and showing his skill.
