"Always Heard From Others...": Mayank Yadav Opens Up On Dream IPL Debut | Cricket News

Lucknow Super Giants bowling coach Morne Morkel on Saturday said that young Mayank Yadav was generating some serious and worrying pace, which was a pleasant sight for the side, who are aiming to go all the way in the Indian Premier League. The 21-year-old Mayank bowled at a very good pace, with most of his deliveries going above 150 as he dismissed dangerous opener Jonny Bairstow, Prabhsimran Singh and Jitesh Sharma at a time when it looked like Punjab Kings would be runaway winners. . Chasing 200 for victory, PBKS’s innings faltered despite Shikhar Dhawan (70) and Bairstow (42) building a century-long partnership thanks to the right-arm pacer’s willingness to give it his all.

Mayank, playing his maiden IPL game, returned miserly figures of 3/27 in his four overs, which broke the PBKS’ chase.

“Young Mayank bowled some serious heat and got the wickets. Last year it was difficult when he got injured after the first warm-up match. We can manage him better. He ran in and that was the pleasing thing,” said Morkel, a former South -African pace bowler.

“We asked the boys to do the basics well on a good wicket. We told him to stick to his height and use bouncers. He proudly ran in and bowled gas despite the humidity. How the wicket would play was unknown, we had to create and use addition conditions.”

Player of the Match Mayank said he was not nervous playing his first IPL game, adding that he just did what his seniors told him to do.

“I have always heard from others that there is nervousness on debuts but that goes away after the first ball. The plan was not to have too much pressure and bowl against the stumps and use the pace as much as possible.”

“Initially there was a thought of changing the pace but the wicket helped and the skipper told me to accelerate. The debut wicket was the favourite. It was tough coming off the injury last season, I had aimed to debut at a young age but injuries were a setback,” Mayank added.

Shikhar said Liam Livingstone’s injury really threw a spanner in the works at PBKS, even as he admitted Mayank’s pace ‘outwitted’ his side.

“They (LSG) played well, Livi got injured and that affected us. He would have come in at four. Mayank bowled very well. His pace outplayed us.

“It was fun to face him, it surprised me with that pace. As an experienced player I knew I would use it. But he figured it out and bowled yorkers to keep me down to a run and a single. I was observant and told my partners to use the short side.

“He bowled at Prabh’s body and took him out. He told Jitesh to leave Mayank and take on the other bowlers, but they also bowled well and then used the pressure against us,” Dhawan said.
