Mayank Yadav shattered his own record with an insane 156.7kph thunderbolt in the IPL 2024 match between RCB and LSG.

India's newest pace sensation, Mayank Yadav, rattled Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) with three crucial wickets in match No.15 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 on Tuesday. Leading the pace attack of KL Rahul's Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) at the famous M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, speedster Yadav handed RCB superstar Glenn Maxwell a duck to silence the crowd in Bengaluru.

In a match where Kohli recorded his 100th T20 appearance, pacer Mayank emerged as the pick of the bowlers for the Super Giants. Mayank bowled four overs and leaked just 14 runs. The LSG pacer removed the likes of Maxwell (0), Rajat Patidar (29) and Cameron Green (9) in his match-changing performance. LSG's fast bowler was also lauded by legendary Australian pacer Brett Lee during the IPL 2024. Lee, who is a JioCinema IPL expert for the 2024 season, asserted that he is excited to see how Mayank progresses in the next few months.

What Brett Lee said about young Mayank?

"First things first, I don't want to put any extra pressure on him because if we are talking about the chance to represent India, it could put pressure on a guy who is just 21 years of age. But I am super impressed with what I have seen so far. He has got great pace, nice action, and got three wickets the other night. So, I'm really excited to see how he progresses in next few months. Mayank Yadav is the talk of the town. He has crossed 155 the other night, and I would love to see him bowl even quicker tonight. I am looking forward to seeing how he backs himself up," Lee added.
