Should Mayank Yadav get a shot in India T20I Team? LSG coach Morne Morkel weighs in

With his raw pace and the backing of experienced coaches like Morne Morkel, Mayank Yadav seems poised for a bright future in Indian cricket.

Mayank Yadav, the young Indian fast bowler with searing pace, has captured the attention of fans and experts alike. Now, Lucknow Super Giants‘ fast bowling coach, Morne Morkel, has added his voice to the growing chorus calling for Mayank’s inclusion in the Indian national team.

Morne Morkel Advocates for T20I Debut

While Morne Morkel is enthusiastic about Mayank Yadav’s potential, he cautions against rushing the young bowler into the rigors of international Test cricket.

Instead, Morne Morkel proposes a strategic introduction through the T20 format. “Fielding Mayank in T20 cricket, which wouldn’t put a big strain on his body, would be a perfect launch for the cricketer,” he suggests.

Speed with Control: Winning Combination

Morne Morkel highlights Mayank Yadav’s key strengths: consistently clocking over 150 kph and the ability to unsettle batsmen. He believes this “x-factor” makes Mayank Yadav a valuable asset.

Morkel emphasizes the importance of experience, particularly in the high-pressure environment of international cricket. He suggests a period of acclimatization within the Indian team camp would be beneficial for Mayank.

“For me the first thing you look at a fast bowler is the speed, then you look at consistency and he (Mayank) is bowling at around 150 plus. His strengths are making life uncomfortable for batters so when you have that x factor you have won that part of the deal. I can’t see why not, he spent some time in the Indian camp, getting used to the conditions, getting used to senior players and the team environment. When I was playing for South Africa one of the greatest things was young players coming into the squad early, gaining experience, playing in different countries, getting used to the conditions, keeping the high quality in training. If you can give him an opportunity in white ball cricket, T20 cricket, which is not taxing on his body it will be perfect,’’ Morkel said.

LSG Nurtures Young Talent

Morne Morkel assures fans that the Lucknow Super Giants are closely monitoring Mayank’s workload and development. He describes the team’s excitement for Mayank’s potential and their commitment to managing his training and recovery effectively.

Gaining Experience: Key to Success

Morne Morkel emphasizes the importance of experience for Mayank Yadav. He stresses the need for Mayank Yadav to play as many matches as possible to refine his skills and gain confidence.

Morkel also emphasizes the importance of a clear bowling strategy, focusing on accuracy and exploiting the weakness of right-handed batsmen.
