RCB vs LSG: Fast and furious Mayank, Rahul trying too hard, Green goes red, and more

Mayank, fast, furious and fiery The graph of Mayank Yadav continues to rise. After rattling Punjab Kings on his IPL debut, he hustled and harassed RCB batsmen. Poor Cameron Green—his bad day getting worse—an utter brute devoured him. He not only bowled faster than light but produced a shade of inward movement from hard length. Green just thrust his bat in hope more than anything else and ended up playing down the wrong line. At this pace, batsmen tend to play him off the back-foot, allowing the extra split second to judge the length. But it is doubtful whether it helped Green—at his pace, which is 150kph, a batsman has approximately 0.4 seconds to judge the line, the length, decide on a shot, and play it—who looked as pale as a ghost as he walked back. It might have taken him a few repl...

How the ‘child of wind’ Mayank Yadav has emerged as the wind beneath LSG’s wings

Synopsis: Propelled to 181 by Quinton De Kock and Nicholas Pooran, Lucknow seal the eve thanks to India’s latest 150 clicks sensation.It was none other than Ian Bishop, a distinguished pace-bowling savant himself, who bestowed the title upon India’s latest 150 clicks sensation. He’s played all of two games but Mayank Yadav is already a strong contender for the household name of the season. And for good measure. On Tuesday, bowling on a two-paced wicket, the 21-year-old stuck to a singular approach. One he had imbibed at an early age: wind em’ up with pace. That he was able to use it to perfection against a pair of Australians, first-team starters no less, made his match-winning spell of 3/14 all the more special.

IPL-17 | What the heck – more humour, less uniformity, please!

Mumbai Indian Captain Hardik Pandya with Rohit Sharma during a practice session | Photo Credit: VIJAY SONEJI Every year the IPL gives rise to many non-stories and irrelevancies. This year (so far) it is the saga of Hardik Pandya versus the fans of Rohit Sharma (and the fans of his own earlier team). Perhaps it’s seen as a change from all that six-hitting which can get tiresome. It has the advantage too of taking the conversation away from stuff like which Bollywood star was seen at which match.But the ‘booing’ strategy lacks imagination. It is too generalised. As many have reported, Sunil Gavaskar and Sachin Tendulkar are among those who have had the experience. But surely in the thousands of spectators across the country, there is someone with a sense of humour, someone who can raise ...

IPL-17 | Mukesh and Hangargekar out on the sidelines but are raring to go for Chennai Super Kings

A file photo of Chennai Super Kings’ Mukesh Chaudhary. | Photo Credit: Special Arrangement Mukesh Choudhary has been on a roller-coaster ride over the last two years. The left-arm pacer made a mark in his debut season for Chennai Super Kings in 2022, finishing as the team’s highest wicket-taker with 16 scalps. He impressed with his ability to swing the new ball and even travelled to Australia as a net-bowler for the T20 World Cup.

Come 2024, and Parag has been the story of the IPL’s 17th edition.

Don’t think MI have used Jasprit Bumrah in the correct fashion: Brett Lee | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: One of the major reasons the Mumbai Indians have slid to the bottom the IPL 2024 table after suffering three successive defeats right at the start is that in the first two matches, skipper Hardik Pandya, for some reason, held back pace ace Jasprit Bumrah from bowling in the Powerplay overs. It meant that MI missed out on his early strikes, even though Bumrah found a way to sizzle, taking 3-14 in four overs against Gujarat Titans and then 0-29 when the carnage was on against the Sunrisers.It's a tactic which hasn't gone down well with former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee, who feels that the 30-year-old India pacer's rhythm has been disturbed as a result of this move.
