Moody on Mayank’s T20 WC Prospects: “Definitely in Conversation, Skillset Crucial” 

In IPL 2024, Mayank Yadav from Lucknow Super Giants has emerged as a sensational pace bowling talent, captivating the tournament with his exceptional performances. Securing consecutive Player of the Match awards, his impressive display of raw pace and precision has garnered widespread attention. Speculations have arisen regarding his potential selection in India’s T20 World Cup squad, as his remarkable skills make him a compelling candidate for consideration, raising anticipation for his future in both IPL and international cricket.

Mayank’s Performance:

During his IPL debut against Punjab Kings, Mayank Yadav made a significant impact by claiming 3 wickets for 27 runs while bowling at an impressive speed of 155.8 kph, marking the fastest delivery of the season at that time. He continued to excel in his next match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, where he showcased exceptional skills, securing figures of 3/14 while bowling at an astonishing speed of 156.7 kph, now the fastest delivery of IPL 2024. 

Besides his remarkable pace, Mayank’s ability to maintain tight lines and introduce variations in his bowling has garnered praise from cricket experts, further solidifying his status as an explosive bowling talent in the IPL and sparking discussions about his potential inclusion in India’s T20 World Cup squad.

Tom Moody on Mayank Yadav:

Tom Moody expresses the belief that Mayank Yadav, an emerging talent from Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), is a strong contender for India’s 2024 T20 World Cup squad. With just two IPL 2024 appearances, Mayank’s exceptional performance has caught Moody’s attention, indicating his potential to feature in the tournament held in the West Indies and USA in June. Mayank’s rapid rise in the IPL has positioned him as a promising candidate for national selection.

He said, “He is definitely in the conversation. Whether you take that risk punting on him or not is another conversation because you also need to consider what skillset you need in that reserve fast bowler – is it someone who is a powerplay bowler, or someone who has the ability to bowl at the death, all those subtle skillsets are important when you are talking about a T20 World Cup.”

Mitchell McClenaghan, Moody’s fellow panelist, expressed that if Mayank Yadav maintains his current form, he would be a strong contender for selection in the T20 World Cup squad, emphasizing his potential impact on the team’s composition.

He said, “If his form continues throughout this tournament, the World Cup starts six days after the IPL, I think it would be crazy not to look at the players who are in form going into that tournament.”

He also said, “He may not have the caps behind him, but if he continues this vein of form and can keep his pace up throughout the whole tournament and keep winning games – he has won two games in a row, his first two games – then you are right in the mix. Long shot but you wouldn’t say never.”
