Yadav is a right-arm pacer and made an immediate impact by bowling the fastest delivery of the season, reaching a great speed of 155.8 kph. His express pace troubled the Punjab Kings batsmen, and Mayank managed to pick up three crucial wickets in his debut match, finishing with figures of 3 for 27 in his four-over spell.

In the 11th over of the match, Mayank bowled the fastest delivery of the season to Shikhar Dhawan, reflecting his ability to generate serious pace. Mayank followed it up with a short ball to Jonny Bairstow, who mistimed his shot and was caught near the boundary line by Marcus Stoinis. Yadav then dismissed Prabhsimran Singh with another short ball, inducing a top-edge to Naveen-ul-Haq at mid-on. Mayank completed his impressive spell by removing Jitesh Sharma with yet another short delivery.

At the post-match press conference, Mayank revealed that he used to look up to South African legend Dale Steyn. Incidentally, Steyn was one of the many former cricketers to heap praise on the young gun following his IPL debut.
