In a stunning display of skill and talent, Mayank Yadav, the fast bowler for Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), LSG TEAM clinched the Player of the Match (POTM) award against Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) on April 2nd. 

This remarkable feat has etched Yadav's name in the annals of Indian Premier League history.

Following an impressive debut performance, Yadav delivered yet another outstanding show in the clash against RCB. With his right-arm pace, he scalped three crucial wickets, conceding just 14 runs in his four-over spell. Yadav's exceptional bowling played a pivotal role in LSG's defense of their total of 181 runs against RCB.

Yadav's dominance was evident as he dismantled RCB's middle-order, dismissing key batsmen like Rajat Patidar, Glenn Maxwell, and Cameron Green. Notably, his dismissals of Maxwell for a duck and Green for 9 runs proved to be game-changing moments in the clash between RCB and LSG.

By securing the Player of the Match award in consecutive games, Mayank Yadav has achieved a remarkable milestone. He becomes the first player ever to accomplish this feat in his first two IPL appearances, setting a record that may prove to be a tough challenge for future players to surpass.

Yadav's IPL journey began in LSG's previous match against Punjab Kings, where the 21-year-old bowler impressed with a three-wicket haul, earning him the Player of the Match accolade. His figures of 3/27 in four overs contributed significantly to LSG's victory by 21 runs.

With six wickets in just two games in IPL 2024, Yadav has made a sensational start to his IPL career. His impressive average of 6.83 and an exceptional economy rate of 6.83 solidify his position as one of the standout performers in the tournament. 

Currently, he sits as the second-highest wicket-taker in IPL 2024, trailing only behind CSK's Mustafizur Rahman, who has seven wickets to his name.
