156.7kph: LSG pacer Mayank Yadav shuts Chinnaswamy crowd with fastest ball of IPL 2024



Mayank Yadav

LSG pacer Mayank Yadav rattled the RCB batters and silenced the roaring crowd at the Chinnaswamy Stadium with a delivery that clocked an astonishing 156.7kph. This was the fastest ball of IPL 2024 as Mayank rewrote the record books with his blistering pace. The young LSG pacer unleashed a ferocious delivery that zipped through the air, leaving the batsman, and indeed everyone watching, in awe. Earlier in the tournament, he had already made headlines by firing nine deliveries over 150 kmph in a single match, picking up three crucial wickets and conceding only 27 runs, leading LSG to their first win of the season against Punjab Kings. His performance was so impressive that it caught the attention of cricket legends like Brett Lee and Dale Steyn, who praised the young Indian pacer for his raw pace and potential.

Mayank dismissed Glenn Maxwell for a duck with a thunderous delivery clocked at 151kph to send shockwaves through the stadium. Maxwell, one of the world’s finest batters, could only manage a feeble attempt, flapping the ball to mid-on. As Mayank Yadav continued his onslaught, he swiftly removed Cameron Green, further denting RCB’s batting lineup. The Chinnaswamy Stadium fell into a deathly silence, with spectators and players alike awestruck by Mayank Yadav’s sheer pace and control.

With every delivery, spectators found themselves glancing up at the screens in anticipation of the next blistering pace Yadav would unleash. In a game where anticipation often precedes action, Yadav’s performance was a stark reminder of the immense impact sheer pace can have on the outcome of a match.

Mayank’s thunderbolts, reaching speeds of 150 km/h, astounded spectators during his team’s 21-run victory over the Punjab Kings last Saturday. His remarkable pace unsettled Jonny Bairstow, Prabhsimran Singh, and Jitesh Sharma, ultimately contributing to PBKS’ defeat. Throughout his four-over spell, Mayank consistently registered speeds of 150 km/h and beyond, earning him the well-deserved title of Player of the Match.


Mayank Yadav, a promising young cricketer from Delhi, was bought by Lucknow ahead of the IPL 2022 season. Born on June 17, 2002, Mayank is a bowler with a specialisation in pace bowling, a skill set that LSG was keen to incorporate into their squad.

Ahead of the season LSG head coach Justin Langer had backed the fast bowler to shine. Langer had said that losing England’s Mark Wood would be a loss but the team had enough firepower to do well in the tournament
