Lucknow’s leadership responsible for Mayank getting injured in the very first match after his return: Lee

New Delhi. Former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee believes that Lucknow Super Giants did not manage Mayank Yadav’s injury properly. He suggested that the young fast bowler was brought back into the IPL prematurely after being ruled out due to stomach pain. Twenty-one year old Mayank felt tightness in the stomach during the match against Gujarat Titans on April 7. This was his third IPL match and he impressed everyone with his pace and became ‘Man of the Match’ in both his opening matches.

He made his comeback during the Super Giants’ win against Mumbai Indians in Lucknow on Tuesday but walked off the field without completing his fourth over due to injury. Lucknow coach Justin Langer said that the young fast bowler was feeling pain in the same spot due to which he was out of the field for almost three weeks. Lee, one of the most explosive fast bowlers in the game, blamed it on the top management and medical staff of the Lucknow team.

“A side strain, or whatever it’s called, usually takes at least four to six weeks to heal,” Lee said in a Geo Cinema release. We don’t know how serious it is but it’s not good management at all for someone who is putting a strain on his body by bowling at 150 kmph.” He said, ”His first match back. And the responsibility for this injury should lie squarely on the leadership group and medical staff of Lucknow Super Giants.

The 47-year-old Lee, who took 310 wickets in 76 Test matches for Australia between 1999 and 2008, expressed sympathy for Mayank and said that he should have got the right advice. “The only person who has to pay this price is Mayank,” Lee said. In IPL everyone likes to see what his potential is. You wish he would have got the right advice so that he doesn’t have to go through this.” He said, ”Now perhaps it will mean that if there is an injury, he will be out of the World Cup.
