Yadav’s fierce bowling rattled the RCB batting lineup, dismissing prominent players like Glenn Maxwell, Cameron Green, and Rajat Patidar. His fiery short delivery caught Maxwell off guard, resulting in a caught dismissal.

The cricket fraternity lauded Yadav’s exceptional bowling performance, with praise pouring in from notable figures like Suryakumar Yadav and Dale Steyn.

Expressing his delight at winning consecutive Player of the Match awards, Yadav emphasized his ambition to represent India. “My goal is to play for the country. I feel this is just the start,” he remarked.

Reflecting on his standout moment in the match, Yadav singled out Green’s dismissal as the most satisfying.

He attributed his rapid pace to various factors such as diet, sleep, and training regimen, highlighting his focus on dietary discipline and recovery methods like ice baths.

As Mayank Yadav continues to make waves with his exceptional pace and performance, his aspirations to don the Indian jersey remain steadfast, signaling a promising future ahead.
