IPL 2024: Yash Thakur Reveals His Bowling Idol

Yash Thakur, the latest sensation in the fast-bowling department for Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), emerged as a pivotal figure in their recent victory against Gujarat Titans (GT) in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL). Despite the absence of their regular pace spearhead, Mayank Yadav, Thakur stepped up admirably, delivering a spellbinding performance that dismantled GT’s batting lineup and paved the way for LSG’s commanding 33-run win.

Thakur’s stellar showing didn’t just earn him accolades but also provided an insight into the influences shaping his cricketing journey. In a post-match revelation, Thakur opened up about his bowling idols, highlighting the profound impact of two Indian cricketing stalwarts: Umesh Yadav and MS Dhoni. Speaking fondly of Umesh Yadav, a seasoned campaigner and fellow native of his city, Thakur credited him as the catalyst behind his decision to pursue fast bowling.

He commended Yadav’s humility and generosity, recounting instances where Yadav readily offered guidance and support, even at odd hours. Equally inspiring to Thakur is the legendary MS Dhoni, whose astute game awareness and ability to finish matches with finesse have left an indelible mark on the young bowler. Thakur aspires to emulate Dhoni’s mastery, aiming to replicate his match-winning performances with the ball in hand.

Beyond the boundaries of the cricket field, Thakur’s tribute to his late father adds a poignant touch to his journey. Dedication of his maiden T20 five-wicket haul to his father reflects the emotional depth and gratitude he holds for his family’s unwavering support throughout his cricketing endeavors. While Thakur’s journey has seen its share of challenges, including initial struggles in finding his rhythm.

He acknowledges the unwavering faith and support extended to him by the LSG management, coaching staff, and teammates. Their belief in his abilities, coupled with their encouragement during tough times, has played a pivotal role in his development as a cricketer. Looking ahead, as LSG prepares to take on Delhi Capitals in their next encounter at Ekana Sports City, Lucknow, Thakur’s performance serves as a testament to his dedication, resilience, and aspirations to leave a lasting legacy in the world of cricket.
