Young fast bowler Mayank Yadav has been a revelation for Lucknow Super Giants in the ongoing IPL 2024 as he produced a sensational match-winning performance on his debut. Mayank, who bowled the fastest delivery of this year’s competition at 156.7 Kmph, followed it up with another three-wicket haul that guided his team to victory against Royal Challengers Bengaluru. However, a side strain during the game against Gujarat Titans came as a big blow to the youngster and since then, he has not featured in the competition till now. Ahead of LSG’s game against Chennai Super Kings, LSG assistant coach Lance Klusener provided a massive fitness update on Mayank and when he can potentially make his return.

“I am not sure regarding his participation in tomorrow’s match against Chennai. He has been bowling in the nets but his fitness is our priority. But can’t say anything regarding his participation,” Klusener said.

Earlier, LSG took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to post a video showing Mayank Yadav bowling at nets ahead of the huge clash against Chennai Super Kings.

Phir se udd chala,” the caption said.

Meanwhile, former Australia cricketer Tom Moody backed Mayank Yadav to be in contention for a spot in the India squad for the T20 World Cup 2024.

“He is definitely in the conversation. Whether you take that risk punting on him or not is another conversation because you also need to consider what skillset you need in that reserve fast bowler – is it someone who is a powerplay bowler, or someone who has the ability to bowl at the death, all those subtle skillsets are important when you are talking about a T20 World Cup,” said Moody.

Former New Zealand pacer Mitchell McClenaghan also echoed a similar sentiment.

“If his form continues throughout this tournament, the World Cup starts six days after the IPL, I think it would be crazy not to look at the players who are in form going into that tournament,” McClenaghan said.

“He may not have the caps behind him, but if he continues this vein of form and can keep his pace up throughout the whole tournament and keep winning games – he has won two games in a row, his first two games – then you are right in the mix. Long shot but you would not say never,” he added.
