On Saturday, Mayank Yadav stunned the Punjab Kings with his blazing pace, claiming three wickets at a cost of just 27 runs.

Because of Yadav’s tremendous velocity and inability to bowl a quicker delivery, two of PBKS’s openers, Prabhsimran Singh and Jitesh Sharma, were removed from the game at the Ekana Cricket Stadium.

The 21-year-old won player-of-the-match after finishing with bowling stats of 3/27 in his IPL debut against Punjab Kings on Saturday night. Mayank’s lightning-fast 150 kmph thunderbolts rattled the PBKS batsmen, and all three of his wickets came off short deliveries.
