The unreal speed of 155.8 on his debut day

The match was like a reminder for Mayank Jagana, reminiscent of Abhishek's performance. Punjab Kings' batsmen were overwhelmed by Mayank's pace. In this season, Lucknow won the first match. And it was from Mayank's contribution, as he not only took three wickets but also grabbed the Man of the Match award at the end.

Giving away only 27 runs and taking 3 wickets in four overs, Mayank's bowling figures were quite impressive. But more captivating was Mayank's pace. The whirlwind he created at such a young age sparked intense discussions. In the Abhishek match, he bowled at 147 kilometers per hour on his first delivery. Coming in the second over, he further stunned everyone. Delivering at a speed of 155.8 km/h, it was the fastest ball in the IPL so far.

Mayank had to endure a tough time before the start of yesterday's IPL match. He had to overcome an injury. Returning to bowling in such a situation is always challenging. Some caution is necessary. However, before this 21-year-old bowler, the presence of the giants of the batsmen conveyed something different. It was evident how many variations he delivered the ball with.

Mayank said, "I never thought my performance would be so good in my Abhishek. I've heard from others that Abhishek works with some genetic pressure here. Everyone told me not to take any pressure. Just go and deliver at the stumps and use pace. That's what I did."

Attempting to chase Lucknow's target of 200 runs, Kings' collection was 102 runs without losing any wickets by the 12th over. From there, Mayank's arrival and Jonny Bairstow's return again brought Lucknow back into the match. Mayank has also received praise from Punjab's captain Shikhar Dhawan. Expectations are high for the next match.
