Aussie Great 'Blames' LSG Management For Poor Handling Of Mayank Yadav's Injury

Mayank Yadav emerged as one of the most exciting discoveries of this year's IPL, consistently bowling at speeds exceeding 150 km/h. However, he suffered an injury during the tournament, which kept him out of few games.

Mayank Yadav wasn't completely recovered from the injury but despite this, LSG decided to field him against the Mumbai Indians yesterday, only for the young pacer to sustain another injury

Mayank Yadav couldn't complete his quota of overs against Mumbai Indians yesterday as he got injured while bowling his fourth over. After bowling the first over, the remaining balls were bowled by Naveen-ul-Haq.

Lee furious over Mayank's injury handling

Brett Lee, who has been a vocal admirer of Yadav since the beginning, criticized the LSG management for their handling of the promising fast bowler, seen as India's latest pace sensation.

Lee emphasized the danger of pushing one's body to the limit, especially for a fast bowler like Mayank, whose bowling speed exceeds 150 km/h. 

"A side strain or whatever they're calling it, normally takes at least four to six weeks to even come right. We don't 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's 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," Brett Lee

Earlier, Lee had suggested that if Mayank corrected the posture of his head, Mayank could potentially increase his pace by another 5 km/h.
