Legendary Australian bowler Brett Lee slammed Lucknow Super Giants management over pace sensation Mayank Yadav’s persisting injury in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League.

Lee's statement came after Mayank was forced to retire amid his spell where he walked off the field without completing his fourth over against the Mumbai Indians at the Ekana Stadium on Tuesday.

"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," said Lee during an interaction.

Notably, Mayank has stunned the batsmen in this IPL season after clicking deliveries past 150 km/hr.
