Fire vs fire! What happens when Virat Kohli goes up against Mayank Yadav in RCB vs LSG match?

Yadav breached the 150 km mark six times in his first IPL appearance and rushed players like Shikhar Dhawan and Jonny Bairstow for pace.

Expect serious heat in the RCB vs LSG match. Both from the bat and the ball. Match 15 of the IPL 2024 will see the fastest bowler, Mayank Yadav, in the league go against the highest run-scorer, Virat Kohli. The speedster shocked and rocked the Punjab Kings, bowling absolute rockets and claiming a 3-fer on his IPL debut.

After the match, Kings captain Shikhar Dhawan even admitted that he was ‘surprised’ by Mayank’s pace. The express pacer bowled 7 of the 10 fastest balls in the tournament so far in his 4-over spell. Going against an all-time great, the 21-year-old will look to beat Kohli at his pace, while the batting maestro will give the youngster a proper lesson.

Having faced the likes of Dale Steyn, Mitchell Johnson, and Jofra Archer, the pace of Mayank Yadav won’t bother Kohli. But at 35, dealing with a bowler who consistently hits the speed of 150+ won’t be easy, even for him. For Mayank, being fresh and the two-bouncer rule should aid him.
