After the match, RCB skipper skipper Faf du Plessis decoded the set of skill set that makes Mayank Yadav so lethal.

The Delhi tearaway left RCB batters at his mercy following his sensational spell which saw him register 3/14.

On a night when records tumbled as LSG pacer clocked 156.7 kph to bowl the fastest delivery in the ongoing edition and overall the fourth fastest in the history of the entire tournament.

He dismissed Glenn Maxwell, Cameron Green and Rajat Patidar which dented RCB’s hopes of chasing 182.

After the game, Du Plessis pointed out the factors that makes Mayank more deadly apart from his sheer pace.

“As with any new young fast bowler, it’s an action you haven’t faced before and he has the pace behind it. His pace was great but more impressive was his ability to control length and bowl with discipline. It’s pace combined with accuracy,” du Plessis said after the game.
