Manish Pandey was the first Indian batsman to get a century in the Indian Premier League (IPL), and many people think he is one of the best and most unique batters on the circuit. Even though the Karnataka batsman hasn’t had many chances to play for his country in international games, he has been a regular member of the limited-overs team for a number of years.

  • Biography –

According to Indian domestic cricket news, Manish Pandey made his official debut on the world stage when he was still a teenager. He scored 114 runs in only 73 balls, which was a great way to start. With this hit, he officially joined the RCB team in the playoffs, which pushed them into the postseason. Manish Pandey made history when he became the first Indian player to hit a century in the lucrative Indian Premier League (IPL). The IPL was held for the first time outside of India for the first time in the rainbow country of South Africa.

  • Domestic Career –

Manish Pandey’s career took off quickly after he played for Mysore in-state games. Pandey was asked to join the India Under-19 team in 2008, which was captained by Virat Kohli, because of how well he played. Pandey had a great hitting game, but because he didn’t help the team win enough, he didn’t get any credit for it.

After India won the World Cup, Pandey knew he needed to sign with an IPL team, and he chose to sign with the Mumbai Indians. Manish Pandey didn’t get to play much because of team stars like Sachin Tendulkar and Sanath Jayasuriya. As a result, he decided to play for his local club, Royal Challengers Bangalore, a year later (RCB).

Since then, Pandey has been an important part of the Karnataka state squad as a whole. He had 882 runs by the end of the Ranji season 2009–10, which made him the best-run scorer of the season. This incredible score included four hundred and five fifties, with an average of 63. This shows how consistent he is and how much he wants to score runs.

Pandey has played in 89 first-class games, and his batting average is an impressive 52.00. In those games, he has scored a total of 6293 runs, including 19 centuries and 29 half-centuries.

  • IPL Career –

In 2008, the Under-19 World Cup was won by Manish Pandey. Shortly after that, the powerful Mumbai Indians picked him. He left because he wasn’t given many chances to show what he could do. He then joined the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) team and had a big year the next year. He left the team because he didn’t get many chances to do well. During the second season of the Indian Premier League, Pandey made the first Indian century in the rainbow nation of South Africa. This was a stepping stone of his career.

The team made the decision to retain him for the third season of the Indian Premier League, but because of his poor performance, he was finally released from his position.

The majority of Manish Pandey’s time spent with the now-defunct Pune Warriors India squad was spent on mundane tasks. At a auction, he became a member of the group and remained with them for three years.

When Pandey was recruited by Kolkata Knight Riders in 2014, it was as if someone had administered an injection of the proverbial “elixir of youth” to him. The batter for Karnataka has a track record of producing significant runs, and in the playoffs of the Indian Premier League, he accomplished it again for KKR. His outstanding innings of 94 runs was the decisive factor in KKR’s triumph against Wriddhiman Saha’s 100, which secured them their second IPL championship. His performance also helped KKR win the match.

Despite this, his performance continued to decline, and as a result, KKR made the decision to terminate his employment. Pandey was removed from the match for an illegal act, but Sunrisers Hyderabad swiftly picked him up, and he has been doing really well for them ever since then. After this new franchise Lucknow Super Giants picked him up at the auction in 2022.

  • International Career –

In July 2015, Pandey made his debut for India in an international game in Harare, Zimbabwe. This was six years after he hit a brutal IPL hundred in Centurion. He made the most of his first chance to bat by getting 71 runs. But the innings where he scored a century in a match against Australia in Sydney in 2016 was the one that got him the most praise.

Manish Pandey came in and hit a nearly uninterrupted 104-run inning, which helped India win after they had fallen behind in their attempt to chase 331. Because of his great innings, he was praised as the man who would save India from being ranked number four.

But the selectors dealt Pandey a bad hand when they didn’t pick him for the team that would compete in the 2019 World Cup.

  • T20I Career –

Pandey played his first Twenty20 International match in Zimbabwe not long after he played his first One-Day International match there. Both of these important events took place in Zimbabwe. In 2016, he came into the game to replace Yuvraj Singh at the Twenty20 World Cup in India. During the semi-final match against the West Indies, Pandey didn’t get to bat because MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli were putting on a show by scoring 191 runs between them. Because Andre Russell did so well, Pandey never got the chance to wear the blue shirt and play for India in an ICC tournament.

  • Family –

In the year 1989, Manish Pandey was born, G.S. Pandey and Tara Pandey, in the city of Nainital, which is located in the state of Uttarakhand. If Pandey hadn’t scored the first century in the Indian Premier League, he had every intention of following in his father’s footsteps and becoming a soldier. On December 2, 2019, Pandey and the actress Ashrita Shetty exchanged vows and were married in Mumbai.
