DRS, April 3: Runaway Rocket! Mayank Yadav blasts off Virat Kohli’s RCB

Welcome to our special segment DRS or the Daily Review System. In this, InsideSport will provide you with the top stories of IPL from a day before that you might have missed in the hustle and bustle of your busy life.

Lucknow Super Giants have bagged 2 wins on a trot. Their latest comes against Royal Challengers Bengaluru. The KL Rahul led side inflicted a dominant 28 run defeat at Chinnaswamy. With this defeat RCB goes to the second last spot in the Points Table. Quinton de Kock’s blistering fifty, followed by Fast and Furious spell from Mayank Yadav was enough to outclass the Bengaluru outfits.

Fast and Furious!

Lucknow Super Giants pace Mayank Yadav has lighted up IPL 2024. The 21-year-old young pacer clocked the fastest ball bowled in IPL 2024. The pacer beat his own previous milestone to set the speedometer record 156.7 kmph in the RCB vs LSG clash.

New Year, Same Old RCB!

Another day and another batting collapse for Royal Challengers Bengaluru. Tasked to chase down 182, the RCB team were blown apart by the Lucknow outfits. Mahipal Lomror came in an impact sub to score the highest runs in the team, 33. The rest of the team, like every other year, unable to control damage.

T20 World Cup changes to fizzle out?

It has not been the ideal Indian Premier League (IPL) for RCB pacer Mohammed Siraj. The ace pacer continues to leak runs thereby causing a big problem for himself. Siraj conceded 46 runs the other day, and against LSG he leaked 47 runs. With 60 days remaining for T20 World Cup and Mohammed Shami ruled out, it is a big selection headache for BCCI Selection Committee to decide who will partner Jasprit Bumrah to lead the pace charge.

Nicky P goes Huge!

Star Lucknow Super Giants batter Nicholas Pooran needs no introduction. However, the West Indian southpaw went on to imprint his name in the history books. The destructive batter slammed the joint highest six hit in IPL 2024. Pooran went on to hammer Reece Topley for a massive 106 meter six, which is the joint highest six hit in this edition of IPL.

De Kock Masterclass at Chinnaswamy

Lucknow Super Giants opener Quinton de Kock let his bat speak in the RCB vs LSG clash. The Proteas southpaw was on a class of his own. He slammed a blistering 81 run knock from 56 balls. The destructive batter made his intentions clear from the start. His rampage consisted of 8 fours and 5 sixes that set the pace of LSG innings.

Max Max, Super Max!

Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell needs no introduction. He might not have been in top form in batting, but the Aussie was crucial in his bowling spell. The spinner was introduced early in the powerplay and he proved effective. He immediately stopped LSG from scoring a plethora of runs, and also managed to bag 2 wickets. He scalped KL Rahul and Marcus Stoinis to bowl a superb spell of 23 from with 2 wickets from 4 overs.

One more duck and he will go on to top the charts with Dinesh Karthik and Rohit Sharma.
