When is the return of Mayank Yadav (injury) anticipated? Critical fitness update on the fiery pacer from LSG captain KL Rahul

Friday, in their IPL 2024 match against Delhi Capitals, the Lucknow Super Giants were defeated by six wickets. DC’s returning spinner Kuldeep Yadav, who amassed an impressive 3/20 as the Capitals restricted the hosts to 167/7 in Lucknow, shattered the KL Rahul-led side, which had won three consecutive matches. The away team consequently secured a crucial victory by chasing down the target with eleven balls remaining, thereby rescuing themselves from the lowest position in the table.

Although LSG was without one of their frontline pacers, Dafabet, during the match against the Capitals, the 21-year-old fast bowler’s extraordinary 150+ kph velocity and impressive accuracy made him an indispensable member of the side. Mayank’s seven wickets in three matches prior to his absence due to injury during the Super Giants’ match against the Gujarat Titans last week ignited the league since his début for the team against the Punjab Kings.

As Jake Fraser-McGurk (55*) and Rishabh Pant (41) delivered fiery knocks to propel DC to a comprehensive victory, it was evident that the LSG missed Mayank’s assistance during their bowling attempts. A post-match presentation included Rahul’s update regarding the possible return of Mayank.

“His appearance and condition are both satisfactory, but we do not wish to rush him (Mayank Yadav).” Although he is eager to depart, we must safeguard his body. Rahul insisted that the team management continues to exercise caution regarding the juvenile pacer’s handling, adding, “We must ensure he is 100 percent fit before he returns in a few matches.”

Mayank is not anticipated to make a return prior to the April 19 match between LSG and the Chennai Super Kings, as stated previously by the team’s head coach, Justin Langer.

As his recuperation progresses, it is improbable that Mayank will participate in the upcoming two games. Langer stated prior to the match against DC, “We’re hoping he regains full health in time for our April 19 home match against Chennai Super Kings.”
