Mayank Yadav showcased blistering pace yet again, repeatedly clocking over 150kph, to dismantle RCB’s batting lineup after de Kock and Pooran shone with the bat

LSG climbed to fourth position on the table with two victories in three games, while RCB found themselves just one spot off the bottom after suffering their third defeat in four matches. Lucknow Super Giants posted 181 for 5 (De Kock 81, Pooran 40*, Maxwell 2-23) and went on to beat Royal Challengers Bengaluru, who managed 153 in reply, thanks to Mayank’s devastating spell of 3 for 14.

Mayank Yadav once again lit up the speed gun and wreaked havoc on RCB’s batting lineup, claiming the crucial wickets of Glenn Maxwell and Cameron Green. Lucknow Super Giants successfully defended their total of 181, with Mayank leading the charge with figures of 4-0-14-3, ensuring RCB’s second successive defeat at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Quinton de Kock laid a solid foundation for LSG’s victory with his consecutive half-centuries, while Nicholas Pooran’s explosive unbeaten 40 off 21 balls propelled his team beyond the 180-run mark on a challenging pitch.

De Kock’s aggressive batting at the start, accumulating 32 runs of the 54 scored in the powerplay, set the tone for LSG’s innings. Despite a dropped chance, he went on to score 81 off 56 balls before eventually being dismissed.

In a standout performance, Maxwell impressed with the ball for RCB, claiming figures of 4-0-23-2, including crucial wickets in the powerplay. However, RCB’s frontline bowlers failed to contain LSG’s batting lineup effectively, allowing them to post a challenging total.

Pooran’s explosive hitting towards the end of the innings further cemented LSG’s position, as he smashed five sixes in the final two overs, propelling his team to a formidable total.

Mayank’s fiery pace and accuracy with the ball proved to be the difference as he rattled RCB’s top order with sheer speed, ultimately guiding LSG to a comprehensive victory.
