‘Speedster Mayank Yadav can bowl 159 kmph delivery, was considered for IND vs ENG Tests’

Sonnet club admin Devender Sharma revealed that Mayank Yadav was in the radar of chief selector Ajit Agarkar for IND vs ENG series

Did you know that LSG pacer Mayank Yadav was considered for the IND vs ENG series? Yes, you read that right. The fiery pacer, who delivered IPL 2024’s fastest delivery (155.8 kmph) against PBKS, was in the radar of chief selector Ajit Agarkar for the England series, his coach revealed.

Mayank Yadav’s missed chance in IND vs ENG series

As per RevSportz, Yadav’s coach Devender Sharma claims that Agarkar wanted to see Mayank Yadav play before making a decision on picking him for the England series. Unfortunately, a hamstring injury sidelined the bowler from performing in front of the chief selector.

He was very sad, nearly broken. Who would want to give away the chance to impress the chief selector and play for India? I pray to god that he keeps rising and stays fit. He is a very good and strongly built kid. He has an athletic body. He is very hard-working and has the ability to serve India for long. He has a good head and that is what is most important,” Sharma said.

‘Mayank can bowl 159 kmph deliveries’

Uski ball dikhti nahi hai, 158-159 kph daal sakta hai baccha (batters struggle to see his deliveries, he can clock 158-159kph). He came to us at Sonnet Club six years back. We took a trial and straightaway spotted that he is very quick off the wicket with a smooth action. But he was very weak at that time though he bowled really quick. We worked on his fitness, made him play a few age-group tournaments for the club to polish his game and steadily, he moved up the ranks to play for Delhi,” Devender Sharma said.
