Mayank Yadav bowling at rocket speed

LSG batter Quinton De Kock lauded Yadav and said that he was bowling at rocket speed in the IPL 2024 season. Speaking at the post-match presentation, De Kock said, “It (pitch) was holding and bouncing. Wanted to bat for longer because we lost wickets at times. He is bowling rockets in our team. He is keeping it simple and doing really well for his team. That’s why he (Pooran) gets the big bucks, I guess. Conditions are never quite the same as an opener if you have played at the same venue before.”
