Brett Lee expressed admiration for Mayank Yadav, refraining from adding undue pressure while acknowledging his potential during a media conference organized by Jio Cinema.

In the early stages of IPL 2024, a promising talent has emerged in the form of Mayank Yadav, a right-arm fast bowler whose pace is nothing short of astounding. Clocking speeds of 155.8 kmph in his debut match against Punjab Kings and surpassing that with 156.7 kmph against RCB, Mayank has captured the attention of the cricket fraternity worldwide.

Brett Lee, the veteran Australian pace bowler, refrained from heaping undue pressure on the 21-year-old sensation. Speaking at a media conference organized by Jio Cinema, Lee expressed admiration for Mayank’s remarkable pace and fluid bowling action. While acknowledging the youngster’s potential, he opted not to discuss his prospects of representing India to alleviate any added stress.

“First things first, I don’t want to put any extra pressure on him,” Brett Lee said.

“If we talk about the chance to represent India, it could put pressure on the guy who’s 21 years of age. I am super impressed with what I have seen of him so far – he’s got great pace and nice action. I am excited to see how his future progresses in the next 12-18 months,” he added.

Yadav’s delivery at 156.7 km/h ranks as the fourth-fastest in IPL history, trailing Shaun Tait, Lockie Ferguson, and Umran Malik. Against Bengaluru, he took three wickets, conceding only 14 runs in four overs, dismantling RCB’s middle order with dismissals of Maxwell, Green, and Patidar. With six wickets in two matches, he stands second in this season’s wicket-takers list, behind Mustafizur Rahman.
