Helmet Pe Marne Vala Bowler: How Mayank Yadav Was Described In Delhi Circuit

In the Indian Premier League 2024 (IPL 2024) on Saturday night (March 30), Mayank Yadav surprised everyone with his pace, leaving the renowned fast bowler Jonny Bairstow stunned. Mayank attempted to pull back his length ball, but it came out exceptionally fast, resulting in a catch out. He showcased a brilliant display of pace bowling against the Punjab Kings, taking 3 wickets for 27 runs.

Mayank bowled at a speed of 155.8 kilometers per hour against the Punjab Kings, reminiscent of his father Prabhu Yadav’s reminiscence of the old days. When Mayank was 14 years old, his father used to tell him about the great West Indian fast bowler Curtly Ambrose. Yadav senior was returning from his factory on Saturday, where he manufactures sirens for ambulances and police vehicles. He stopped by the Sonet Club at Delhi to witness Mayank’s bowling prowess.

Prabhu told The Indian Express, “I used to narrate to him the story of Ambrose. Do you know why people were scared of him? Because he used to bowl bouncers, and if you want to intimidate the batsman, that’s what you have to do.” In his adolescence, Mayank became Delhi’s most formidable fast bowler and earned the moniker “bouncer specialist.” (Helmet Pe Marne Vala Bowler)

Brett Lee tweeted on Saturday, “India has found its fastest bowler. Raw pace. Very impressive.”

Following his three-wicket haul against Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL), Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) pacer Mayank Yadav said that Cameron Green’s dismissal was special to him among other wickets.

Within just two matches, Mayank has gathered headlines for his sheer pace, touching bowling speeds of 150 kmph-plus consistently.

In a video shared on IPL’s official social media handle, Mayank said that the over where he dismissed Green was very aggressive. He revealed that the LSG skipper KL Rahul told the pacer to “attack a bit” and use bouncers.

“Green’s wicket was special because I personally like just like one kind of wicket, which is bowling people out, like any fast bowler. That over was a bit aggressive because I’d picked a wicket in the previous over. The captain also told me to attack a bit and use the bouncer with my pace,” Mayank said.

He added that his side’s plan was to bowl at the stumps and not to give any room to the RCB batters. (‘This Is Just The Start, Goal Is To Play For India’: Mayank Yadav After Bowling 156.7 Kph Delivery In IPL 2024)

“No extra training, I just do things that make me quicker and stronger. This was the first time I played on this ground. I’d heard that 180 is easily chasable on this ground but our plan was to keep bowling at the stumps and not give the batters any room,” he added.

During the match against RCB, Yadav bagged three wickets in his four-over spell, giving only 14 runs. Following his remarkable spell, the pacer was named the ‘Player of the Match’. The LSG seamer scripted history at the age of 21 as he became the first bowler in the history of IPL to win the ‘Player of the Match’ award in their first two matches.

Summarizing the game, RCB elected to field first after winning the toss. Openers Quinton de Kock and skipper KL Rahul (20 in 14 balls, with two sixes) gave LSG a measured start with a 53-run opening stand. There was a 56-run stand between Kock and Marcus Stoinis (24 in 15 balls, with a four and two sixes) which helped LSG cross the 100-run mark. RCB bowlers did put pressure on the batting towards the end, but Nicholas Pooran (40* in 21 balls, with four and five sixes) finished off well for LSG, taking them to 181/5 in their 20 overs.

Glenn Maxwell (2/23) was the pick of the bowlers for RCB. Mohammed Siraj, Yash Dayal and Reece Topley took a wicket each for RCB.

In the run chase, openers Virat Kohli (22 in 16 balls, with two fours and a six) started off well along with Faf Du Plessis (19 in 13 balls, with three fours) started off with a 40-run opening stand. But a game-changing spell from Mayank Yadav (3/14) put RCB on the backfoot, reducing them to 94/5. Mahipal Lomror (33 in 13 balls, with three fours and three sixes) and Rajat Patidar (29 in 21 balls, with two fours and two sixes) tried to put up a fight, but RCB could score just 153 in 19.4 overs.

Besides Mayank, Naveen-ul-Haq (2/25) was the pick of the bowlers for LSG. Siddarth, Yash Thakur and Stoinis got a wicket each. Mayank got the ‘Player of the Match’ for his spell. RCB is in the ninth spot with a win and two losses, giving them three points. LSG is in fourth place with two wins and a loss, giving them four points.
