Mayank Yadav reveals wish to recreate Archer’s iconic World Cup ball

Written by Vipin Darwade

LSG’s pace sensation Mayank Yadav has revealed his wish to recreate the iconic delivery of Jofra Archer in 2019 World Cup after his blazing start to life in IPL 2024. Mayank has made a fantastic start to the season as he has picked up 6 wickets in 2 matches and was consistently crossing the 150 kmph-mark in both games. LSG would win both matches on the back of the pacer’s fiery spell.

Mayank revealed that he has a dream of recreating Archer’s iconic delivery against Bangladesh in the World Cup. The England pacer’s delivery would clean up Soumya Sarkar by hitting the top of off-stump. However, the ball would go and cross the boundary like a six, which added to the shine of the moment.

Mayank said that he wanted to bowl a delivery that would do the same and fly over the boundary.

“Yes, from my young age, I have been hearing coaches tell fast bowlers to hit the top of off-stump. I also had a dream. I wanted to bowl a delivery that would hit the top of off-stump and fly over the boundary rope, like what Jofra Archer did in the World Cup. I also thought, I would be able to do that,” said Mayank.
