Indian Cricket has found itself a new sensation in Mayank Yadav. The 21-year-old pacer born in New Delhi has been the fastest bowler during IPL 2024. On Tuesday during the game versus Royal Challengers Bengaluru, the right-arm pacer touched 156.7 KPH. This is the fastest ball in this edition of the IPL and the fourth fastest of all time.

Mayank Yadav made his IPL debut for Lucknow Super Giants against Punjab Kings. In his very first over the youngster set the pulses racing by clocking 150 KPH. In the first ball of his second over Mayank Yadav bowled at 155.8 KPH.

In the two games so far, Mayank Yadav has picked 6 wickets for a total of 41 runs from his 8 overs. His best bowling returns came against Royal Challengers Bengaluru where he picked 3/14 from 4 overs. This helped LSG post a 28-run win against the home team.

What is Mayank Yadav’s IPL salary?

Lucknow Super picked Mayank Yadav during the IPL Mega Auctions in 2022 at the age of 19. The young pacer was purchased for a sum of INR 20 Lakhs thanks to his reputation to be a tear away quick.

It took Mayank Yadav two seasons to make his mark in the league and leave a lasting impression. Thanks to injuries, Mayank Yadav couldn’t play for LSG during the IPL 2023 season. His debut came at the Ekana Stadium against Punjab Kings and Mayank Yadav made an immediate impact.

The world stood and watched in awe as the young pacer thundered into the crease and let out thunderbolts. Even the great Matthew Hayden was impressed with Mayank Yadav’s debut. The likes of Ian Bishop and Pommie Mbangwa have spoken glowingly about the latest fast bowling sensation. Michael Vaughan has even asked the youngster to play a season in country cricket to gain experience. 

Mayank Yadav’s current IPL salary may be just INR 20 Lakhs but the next contract will see a huge jump in numbers. If he isn’t retained due to some circumstances one can expect some of the bigger teams to circle around for his signature.

Many social media users and cricketing experts have advocated Mayank Yadav to be fast tracked into the national team. Talks of an amazing partnership with Jasprit Bumrah during the T20 World Cup is being raked up. There are also calls for Mayank Yadav, to be included in the team for the Australia tour later this year.

With so much talent and potential, the only way for the young pacer is towards the top. If Mayank Yadav, can keep his fitness and keep bowling the way he is, the Indian cap will be a dream turned into reality.
