'Mayank Is An Exceptional Talent, Good To See Pant Back On Ground,’ Says Rohan Jaitley


(MENAFN- IANS) New Delhi, April 4 (IANS) Delhi & District Cricket Association (DDCA) president Rohan Jaitley on Thursday lavished praise on Mayank Yadav after the young pacer bowled the fastest delivery of the ongoing IPL 2024 measured 156.7KMPH on the speed gun.

The cricket world has been buzzing with excitement ever since Mayank Yadav made his debut for Lucknow Super Giants, all thanks to his outstanding display of raw speed and bounce, leaving everyone in awe.

Speaking to IANS, Jaitley said, "Mayank Yadav is an exceptional talent. He debuted for Delhi a few years ago. He's had a rough patch of injury. But it is amazing to see talents that have been identified a while ago, suffered an injury recover, and went through a dedicated rehab process. And when you see a cricketer come up with his prime potential in a game, then as an administrator you only feel delighted that there is someone that's come out from a state which will contribute hopefully in the future towards the country."

"I saw him right after the Covid restrictions had been lifted and the domestic seasons were restarting in a limited manner. That is when I personally noticed an upcoming player."

The DDCA president also expressed his delight following Rishabh Pant's return to competitive cricket after his life-threatening accident in 2022.

“It's marvelous that after such a life-threatening episode coming out, recovering and getting back onto the ground, there's obviously happiness. It's also a commendable job that takes place behind the curtains in terms of sports medicine and biomechanics. There are just so many moving parts...It's a commendable job that everyone has done to make sure that Pant is back on the ground to make sure that he delivers what he is known to do, which is visible to everyone,” he added.
