Who will replace Mayank Yadav? LSG faces big bowling conundrum in IPL 2024

LSG's ability to find the right bowling combination to replace Mayank Yadav will be crucial in maintaining their winning momentum in the upcoming matches.

Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) are riding high on a three-match winning streak in the IPL 2024. Their well-rounded performance, with strong batting from KL Rahul, Quinton de Kock, and Nicholas Pooran, and a potent bowling attack, has been key to their success. However, a recent injury to pacer Mayank Yadav has thrown a spanner in the works, leaving a question mark over their bowling lineup for the upcoming matches.

Mayank Yadav sidelined, LSG seeks solution

Mayank Yadav, who has been a crucial part of LSG’s bowling unit alongside Naveen-ul-Haq, Krunal Pandya, and Yash Thakur, is likely to miss the next two games due to an abdominal strain. This leaves the team with a selection headache, as they decide who will fill the void created by his absence.

LSG pace options: Shamar Joseph or Matt Henry?

LSG has two options to bolster their pace attack: the experienced Shamar Joseph and the young talent Matt Henry. Joseph, known for his express pace and wicket-taking ability, could be a like-for-like replacement for Mayank Yadav.

Matt Henry, on the other hand, brings a different skillset, offering swing and accuracy with the new ball.

The choice between Joseph and Henry will likely depend on the pitch conditions and the opposition’s batting line-up. Against teams with strong openers, Henry’s swing bowling might be preferred, while Joseph’s raw pace could be a weapon against stroke-makers in the middle order.

M Siddharth in wings

Another option for LSG is M Siddharth, a promising young spinner. While not as experienced as Joseph or Henry, Siddharth could be given a chance to impress in the permanent playing XI if the team management decides to invest in a long-term solution.

Notably, M Siddharth has played against RCB and GT as an impact player for LSG.

The onus will be on the remaining pace bowlers – Naveen-ul-Haq and Yash Thakur – to step up in Mayank Yadav’s absence. Additionally, all-rounder Marcus Stoinis, who has impressed with his batting in recent matches, could be asked to contribute with a few overs of his medium pace.

LSG’s ability to find the right bowling combination to replace Mayank Yadav will be crucial in maintaining their winning momentum in the upcoming matches.
