Lucknow Super Giants picked up their first win of the 2024 season of the IPL with a 21-run triumph over Punjab Kings on Friday at the Ekana Sports City in UP.

LSG set PBKS a target of 200 to chase and limited the visitors to 178 thanks to an incredible spell of pace bowling from young debutant Mayank Yadav, who rattled the Punjab batting order.

The 21-year-old Yadav picked up the crucial wickets of Jonny Bairstow, Prabhsimran Singh and Jitesh Sharma, to choke the scoring rate of PBKS and turn the tide of the game.

Social media was ablaze with praise for the youngster as fans and pundits alike took to X, formerly Twitter, to express their appreciation for the seamer.

Legendary Australian seamer Brett Lee said, “India has just found its fastest bowler. Mayank Yadav! Raw pace Very impressive”

Former Indian all-rounder Irfan Pathan expressed, “Mayank yadav has got some serious pace. Good find from @LucknowIPL”

Pundit-par-excellence Harsha Bhogle posted an update that read, “Loving this spell from Mayank Yadav. Eases over 150 kmph. Nice action. Will be watching his development very closely”

Pasistani player Junaid Khan shared a post that read, “Good to see the youngster Mayank Yadav bowling 150kmh+ but hoping he can continue like this just as @shoaib100mph did and not like Umran Malik who bowled 150+ in 1 season and next he was bowling 140kmh”

One fan posted an update that read, “Not a single delivery less than 140 kph. Absolutely mad stuff from Mayank Yadav. Player to watch out in the future.”

The game-changing performance earned the pacer the Player of the Match award and helped LSG pick up two points on the day.
