A little about

Manish Pandey as fresh new cricketer established him with his breathtaking fielding as well as quick batting techniques at the domestic cricket, proving that he was no one-match miracle. Pandey had one match in which he could not be kept out of action and was placed on a one-man show as only one other batsman managed to cross the 50-run mark. Also, Pandey took a breathtaking catch to dismiss Abhishek Nair – which went viral on social media. It was an important wicket in terms of the game and the selectors certainly noticed a young man who displayed impressive big-match flair.

Rahul Dravid is the role model for the young cricketer and gives all his credit to senior. Pandey’s batting though has more quickness and strokes, his trademark shot is the swat-flick, which he uses to good effect while slogging as well as rotating the strike.
