RCB vs LSG Highlights: Mayank Yadav demolishes records & stumps; Bengaluru handed another home loss

Lucknow Super Giants have entered the Top 4 on the IPL 2024 Points Table, while Royal Challengers Bengaluru remain in the 9th spot.

RCB vs LSG Highlights: No one could stop the Mayank Yadav pace express. The 21-year-old, who made his debut just a couple of days ago, is already among the top wicket-takers in the league and has taken the poles of Jonny Bairstow, Cameron Green, and Glenn Maxwell in his short career. The speedster handed Faf du Plessis and Co. their second consecutive victory at home as the LSG continued to impress in the IPL 2024 season.

Mayank Yadav: Catch me if you can

Another ‘player of the match’ performance from Mayank Yadav. The express proved to be too fast and too furious for the batters once again. The speedster broke the 155 km barrier twice in the match and third overall, becoming the first-ever bowler to do so. He also broke his own record for the fastest ball of the IPL 2024 season, bowling a 156.7 rocket to Cameron Green. He claimed the prized wickets of Cameron Green, Glenn Maxwell, and Rajat Patidar and took his second 3-fer in three days.

Quinny’s day out

Quinton de Kock was in full flow today; he scored an imperious 81 off 56 balls, scoring more runs combined than the next two top scorers in the RCB vs LSG match. His knock consisted of 8 fours and 5 sixes and provided the base for coming batters like Marcus Stoinis and Nicholas Pooran.

When in full flow, Nicholas Pooran is a joy to watch. The southpaw scored a quickfire 21-ball 40, but the most memorable thing about his knock was a 106-meter six off the bowling of Reece Topley in the 19th over of the first inning. His inning proved the difference between the sides as the Royal Challengers Bengaluru lost by 28 runs.

Padikkal hits the bullseye

Even before Mayank Yadav derailed the RCB train, it was Devdutt Padikkal who handed them the crucial wicket of Faf du Plessis. The South African is a brilliant player of pace and could have nullified the Mayank effect in the coming overs. But Padikkal’s bullet throw and poor judgement by Faf handed them the start they needed.
