Lucknow Super Giants speedster Mayank Yadav made headlines following his second consecutive match-winning performance which helped them to beat the Royal Challengers Bengaluru by 28 runs to pick up their second win of the 2024 season as well. Looking at his pace and accuracy, former Indian cricketers Manoj Tiwary and Virender Sehwag hoped to see him on the national side soon.

In a video uploaded by Cricbuzz, Manoj Tiwary said, “If I was in Ajit Agarkar’s position I would put him in. Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Shami and then him. Looking at Mayank’s form, action and release it looks like he is in control and it feels like if you give him a bigger stage, he will deliver. With IPL where many overseas players do come in and get them out, your confidence will also go up.”

However, Virender Sehwag shared a similar opinion and a key difference between the LSG pacer and SRH’s Umran Malik. Umran had also stolen the limelight for his pace which also led to him representing the Indian team as well on several occasions. However, he has been unable to solidify his spot in the team. Sehwag believes there is a big difference between the two giving Mayank the edge to deliver on the big stage.

“The difference between Mayank and Umran is that his lines are accurate. Umran was also quick but he wasn’t able to improve on his line and length. Mayank’s lines and lengths are accurate. He is well aware that he has the speed but if I get my lines wrong then I could concede boundaries. Just for that alone I feel that he should play international cricket after IPL if he remains fit,” said the former India opener.

However, KL Rahul’s side will be hoping to see the youngster do well as they look to get their hands on their maiden title as well.
