"One Ball Hit Me Really Hard": KL Rahul's Honest Take On Find Of IPL 2024 Mayank Yadav | Cricket News

Lucknow Super Giants fast bowler Mayank Yadav has become the talk of the town after putting in brilliant performances against Punjab Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore. He impressed on debut with three crucial wickets and against RCB he was again the best performer with the ball as he took the important wickets of Cameron Green, Rajat Patidar and Glenn Maxwell. Mayank’s performances have put him in the conversation for a possible spot in India’s 2024 T20 World Cup squad, but former Australian cricketer Matthew Hayden came up with a plan to tackle the youngster’s rapid pace.

“One of the things that happens in this league is that all these great players, all those great players who watch him, they strategize on how they are going to play against him. When you play length and the pace is high, it is hard to hit. And the way you have to play against someone with that pace is you have to let the ball come to you. Don’t try to force it off the front or back foot. Just absorb the pressure and the ball will do the rest because of the pace of labor,” Hayden said.

Australian cricketer Steve Smith, who was also part of the discussion, also said that the lack of slow deliveries so far is something that the batsman can exploit against Mayank in the future.

“If you look at all those balls, there wasn’t a single slower ball, so you don’t have to worry about that at this stage. He may have it in his armory, we haven’t seen it yet, but we may. ” probably rely on getting inside the line or maybe give some space and use the pace and let it come to you,” Smith said.

Former Australian cricketer Tom Moody said Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) pacer Mayank Yadav is in talks for the ICC T20 World Cup, scheduled to take place in the West Indies/USA from June 1.

A three-wicket haul from Mayank and a barrage of top-level bowling demolished the RCB top order and helped LSG hand the home side their third defeat at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Tuesday.

After LSG’s win, Moody, as quoted by ESPNCricinfo, said that Mayank is in talks for the tournament as it is important to consider the skills required for the tournament during powerplay and death overs.

“He is certainly in the conversation. Whether you take that risk by betting on him or not is a different conversation because you also have to consider what skills you need in that reserve fast bowler – is he someone who can play a powerplay bowler, or someone who has the ability to bowl at the death, all those subtle skills are important when you’re talking about a T20 World Cup,” said Moody.
