MANISH PANDEY’S DOMESTIC CRICKET CAREER:
He has played an instrumental role in turning the fortunes of Karnataka cricket. The 30-year cricketer has been a consistent batsman in the domestic circuit for the Karnataka team. He announced himself in the domestic cricket with a stellar season in the 2009-10 Ranji Trophy.
He amassed as many as 882 runs which included four centuries and five half-centuries, with an average of 63. Pandey exhibited a ravishing 144-knock in the final match against Mumbai; however, his help couldn’t take the team home as they lost that game in the end by just 6 runs.
A veteran in domestic cricket, Pandey has made 161 appearances in List A cricket and 91 in first-class matches in which he has amassed 5376 and 6138 runs respectively.
INDIAN PREMIER LEAGUE:
Post the under-19 World Cup triumph, Royal Challengers Bangalores snapped Manish Pandey ahead of the inaugural season in 2008. Pandey didn’t get many opportunities in the first edition having played just three matches in the tournament. However, by the end of the second season, Manish Pandey was no more an unknown phenomenon. In what was the last league game for RCB in the second season, Pandey scripted history by hitting the first-ever century by an Indian batsman in the Indian Premier League. He smacked an unbeaten 114 off just 73 balls, helping the side win the game against SRH by 12 runs.
Pandey didn’t perform well the following season and hence was released by Royal Challengers Bangalore. The 2012 IPL saw him moving to Pune Warriors and continued playing for them till 2013.
Ahead of the 2014 IPL season, Pandey joined Kolkata Knight Riders. He, in fact, has played the most number of games in a single season in the 2014 edition in his entire IPL career. Turning up for KKR, Pandey amassed 401 runs in 16 matches, averaging 30.84. He scored two half-centuries with the highest score being 94.
Manish Pandey’s breakthrough year came in 2017, where he scored 396 runs at an average of 49.50, including two half-centuries. That led him to become the most expensive buy in 2018 IPL auction. The Karanataka cricket was snapped by Sunrisers Hyderabad for a whopping price of 11 crores.
Pandey, though, could not turn up with good performances that season, enduring an average of just 25.81.
A match-winner, Pandey came back with exceptional performances. He made sure SRH capitalize the start received from the openers and doesn’t lose wickets in packs. The Karnataka batsman piled up 344 runs in 12 games at an average of 43.00.
In his IPL career so far, he has scored 2843 runs in 130 games at an average of 29.30 and a strike rate of 120.82.
MANISH PANDEY’S INTERNATIONAL CRICKET CAREER :
There is no denying that Pandey boasts of incredible numbers in domestic cricket, yet, he hasn’t managed to replicate similar performances at the biggest stage. Hardcore competition coupled with frequent injuries never allowed Pandey to cement his place in the eleven for a long period of time.
Manish Pandey made his international debut for India against Zimbabwe after the 2015 World Cup. He immediately impressed everyone with a blistering 71-run knock in the first innings.
From there on, he always remained in contention. A match-winner, Pandey scored an unbeaten century against Australia to win the game for India in 2016. To date, it is regarded as the best knock he has played in his entire career.
However, a poor run of form and frequent injuries meant he was in and out of the team and also missed out on the place in the 2019 World Cup.
However, given his potential and India’s search for a number five and six batsmen in the shortest format, Manish Pandey has perhaps cemented his place in the eleven and with the T20 World Cup lurking around the corner, chances are high that he will make it to his first ICC event.
Manish Pandey in his international career has played 26 one-day internationals and 38 T20 matches in which he has managed to score 492 and 707 runs respectively. 35.1 in one-day internationals and 47 in T20s.
