No Mayank Yadav, no problem: Yash Thakur’s fifer deflates Gujarat Titans

LSG vs GT Yash Thakur steps up after Mayank Yadav's injury, bags stunning fifer to dismantle Gujarat Titans

Talk about leaving a mark in the game. Lucknow Super Giants‘ Yash Thakur deflated Gujarat Titans with a sensational fifer. The 25-year old pacer broke GT’s backbone as LSG scripted a 33-run win over GT. In fact, LSG received a big blow as ace pacer Mayank Yadav got injured, but the other pacer came all guns blazing to snatch a brilliant win.

KL Rahul’s LSG needed a strong bowling performance to defend their 163 run score. Things turned worse when Gujarat Titans got off to a strong start. Adding more salt to the wounds was the injury of Mayank Yadav. The young pacer bowled just a single over before going off with a side strain.

While Mayank is out injured, Yash stepped up to help his team clinch a historic win (LSG’s maiden win vs GT in IPL History).
