“Will Mayank Yadav return to the field against CSK? “LSG coach provides a massive update regarding his fitness

Young pacer Mayank Yadav has been the star of this year’s IPL for the Lucknow Super Giants. Mayank Yadav has been quite impressed with his bowling for the Lucknow Super Giants ever since his debut for the franchise. He has been bowling match-winning for his franchise since making his first appearance.

However, the young pacer has been suffering from side strain in LSG’s clash against the Titans and has been out of action since then.

Ahead of LSG’s clash against the Super Kings, Lucknow’s bowling coach, Lance Klusener, provided a massive update regarding his fitness.

Lance Klusener said, “I am not sure regarding his participation in tomorrow’s match against Chennai. He has been bowling in the nets, but his fitness is our priority. But I can’t say anything regarding his participation.”

On the other hand, Australian cricketer Tom Moddy has backed Mayank Yadav to feature in India’s World Cup squad for the upcoming T-20 World Cup.

Tom Moody said, “He is definitely in the conversation. Whether you take that risk punting on him or not is another conversation because you also need to consider what skill set you need in that reserve fast bowler—is it someone who is a powerplay bowler or someone who has the ability to bowl at the death? All those subtle skill sets are important when you are talking about a T20 World Cup.” 

Even former New Zealand pace sensation Mitchell Mac Langhan voted for the inclusion of Mayank Yadav in India’s World Cup squad.

Mitchell MacLanhan said, “If his form continues throughout this tournament, the World Cup starts six days after the IPL, and I think it would be crazy not to look at the players who are in form going into that tournament.” 

He further added, “He may not have the caps behind him, but if he continues this vein of form and can keep his pace up throughout the whole tournament and keep winning games—he has won two games in a row, his first two games—then you are right in the mix. Long shot, but you would not say never.”
