Mayank Yadav could return for CSK match, LSG coach Justin Langer raises hope

Mayank Yadav only bowled just one over in LSG's 33-run win against the Gujarat Titans.

The Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) head coach Justin Langer has provided a vital update on Mayank Yadav, who was sidelined after bowling just one over against the Gujarat Titans (GT). While LSG went on to win the clash, Yadav complained about soreness in his lower abdominal region.

LSG unearthed a rare talent in Mayank Yadav, who wreaked havoc when he played his first IPL 2024 game against the Punjab Kings (PBKS). The 21-year-old notched up speeds of above 150 regularly and won his side the match with his three crucial wickets. In the next tie, Mayank once again starred, this time, against a potent batting unit of RCB. The young speedster bagged two back-to-back Player of the Match awards and quickly became the talk of the town.
