IPL 2024: LSG Management Strikes Gold, Unearthing Two Pace Sensations – Mayank Yadav and Yash Thakur

LSG Management Strikes Gold, Unearthing Two Pace Sensations

The Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) have a lot to celebrate in the ongoing IPL 2024 season, and a big part of that is their fantastic pace attack. They deserve a huge round of applause for scouting and picking up two young pace sensations – Yash Thakur and Mayank Yadav.

Mayank Yadav: Speed Demon with Accuracy

Mayank Yadav is another exciting find for LSG. He has emerged as one of the fastest bowlers in the entire IPL, clocking speeds of up to 157 kmph (approximately 97 mph)! What’s even more impressive is that he combines his raw pace with good line and length, making him a difficult proposition for batsmen. He was picked up by LSG for a steal at just INR 20 lakhs (approximately $26,000 USD).

Yash Thakur: From Bargain Buy to Wicket-Taking Machine

Yash Thakur, who was purchased for a mere INR 45 lakhs (approximately $60,000 USD), has been a revelation for LSG. In their last match against the Gujarat Titans, he even grabbed a fifer (five wickets in a single innings)! This kind of performance from a young talent is a testament to LSG’s scouting abilities.

LSG’s Pace Duo – A Force to be Reckoned With

Both Yash Thakur and Mayank Yadav have been instrumental in LSG’s success so far this season. Their ability to take wickets and put pressure on the opposition batsmen has been a major factor in the team’s performances.

The Lucknow Super Giants deserve a lot of credit for identifying and nurturing these young talents. Their success story is an inspiration for other franchises to look beyond established names and invest in young, promising players.
