Brett Lee lashes out at LSG management for mismanagement of Mayank Yadav injury

CricketBrett Lee lashes out at LSG management for mismanagement of Mayank Yadav injury

Srinagar: Former Australia pacer Brett Lee has lashed out at Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) management for mismanaging rising pacer Mayank Yadav’s injury during ongoing IPL 2024.
Mayank Yadav emerged into limelight this IPL by bowling above 150 kmph but has regularly being sidelined due to injuries.

Mayank made his return to action against Mumbai Indians on Tuesday. He bowled with great speed, often crossing the 140 kmph mark and even took a wicket. However, he could not finish his spell as he walked off the field with just five balls left. He ended with figures of 1/31 in 3.1 overs.

Following the game, Brett Lee, a JioCinema IPL expert, said that a side strain takes atleast four to six weeks to get right, but the team management rushed him back into the side within a span of three weeks.

“A side strain or whatever they are calling it, normally takes at least four to six weeks to even come right. We do not know the depths of how big a strain it was but for somebody who is pushing the limits of their body by bowling 150 kmph, that is not good management at all. His first game coming back and getting injured, has to directly be on the leadership and the medical staff of the Lucknow Super Giants. The only person who has to pay this price is this poor young guy Mayank, who is just electric. Everyone in the IPL has loved seeing what he has brought… You wish he got the right advice, so he does not have to go through and absorb this,” said the Aussie pace legend.

In four games of IPL 2024, Mayank has taken seven wickets at an average of 12.14 and an economy rate of 6.98, with the best bowling figures of 3/14 so far.

Head coach Justin Langer provided an update on Mayank’s injury and said the pacer felt sore in the same spot where he suffered the strain.

While speaking after the match, Langer said that earlier, Mayank had a perfect rehab and bowled without any pain during the practice. The LSG head coach added that the pacer will have scans on Wednesday.

“Looks like he’s sore in the same spot, his rehab has been absolutely perfect, he bowled pain-free in the last few weeks or so, he’s looked in great condition. We’ll have a scan and we’ll find out tomorrow,” Langer said on Mayank Yadav’s injury.
