In a recent development coming in, a Lucknow Super Ginats (LSG) fast bowling sensation is set to receive the lucrative BCCI Central Contract. The 21-year-old Delhi pacer is expected to be given a pace bowling contract alongside the likes of Umran Malik, Vidwath Kaverappa, Vyshak Vijaykumar, Yash Dayal and Akash Deep.

Mayank Yadav, who made his debut in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL 2024) season, has been a sheer revelation. He clocked the fastest delivery this season so far and has the ability to bowl consistently at speeds north of 150 kph. 

However, the speedster has been troubled with a recurring injury that forced him to the sidelines after the third game of the season.

Making his comeback during LSG's previous match against Mumbai (MI) last night (April 30), Mayank Yadav once again had to leave the field due to a suspected abdominal muscle 'tear'. 

He now remains doubtful for the remainder of the league stage matches but is anticipated to return ahead of the playoffs.

Speaking on the developments, a BCCI source informed PTI on condition of anonymity,

"He will soon be handed a pace bowling contract and once he is in BCCI Pathways structure, his growth will be systematically monitored. The national selection committee and the Indian team management would like to gradually blood him and ensure that he can maintain peak fitness."
