MS Dhoni vs Mayank Yadav a possibility, speedster could play LSG’s next match against Chennai

Mayank Yadav has been out injured for the last four matches, but could be seen playing in the CSK vs LSG match.

After impressing in his first two matches, express fast bowler Mayank Yadav suffered a niggle in the third encounter. Since then he has warmed the bench, while his team, Lucknow Super Giants have had to manage without him. While it wasn’t a serious injury, it seemed like that the team management did not want to take any chances with the youngster.

Initially, while it was expected that Mayank Yadav will only miss two matches, he has now missed four, including the one vs Chennai Super Kings. He had last played in the match against Gujarat Titans on April 7, where he could not finish his full quota of overs as well. In fact, contrary to the above 155 kmph speeds he had raked up in the first two matches, he could barely cross 140 kmph in that encounter.

Head coach Justin Langer confirmed during the LSG vs CSK encounter, that Mayank could be back for their next match. On being asked about the speedster, the Aussie said, “He is expected to be up and running from the next match or so.” Whether or not that eventually happens remains to be seen.

But if Mayank Yadav does play in the CSK vs LSG match on April 23, he will get a chance to bowl at MS Dhoni, who has been in sensational form this season. It could be a battle for the ages, where MSD will face speeds of over 150 kmph.
