IPL 2021: Former cricketer roast Manish Pandey for tailender like dismissal

The match played against RCB on Wednesday was very tight fixture for the Sunrisers Hyderabad who lost by 6 runs. Hyderabad was given a target of 150 runs to win but the side succumbed at 143 runs in 20 overs. At one point of time, the match was in favour of the Hyderabad. But, the final overs turned the fate of the game and Virat’s team won the match.

In the 17th over, RCB bowler Shahbaz Ahmed dismissed Johnny Bairstow, Manish Pandey and Abdul Samad and pushed the Hyderabad team to the backfoot. Manish Pandey was dismissed and caught by Harshal Patel. Ashish Nehra and Parthiv Patel looked very disappointed with the kind of shot Manish Pandey was dismissed on. The veteran cricketers slammed Manish Pandey giving some eye opener statements.

Ashish Nehra has said that Manish Pandey has been in and out of Team India because of his lack of adaptability to the game. Moreover, former India batsman Ajay Jadeja predicted that Pandey might not feature in Hyderabad’s playing eleven in the coming matches.

“This is the reason Manish Pandey has been in and out of the Indian team. If you see how long ago, he made his debut, and players like Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan, Rishabh Pant, Suryakumar Yadav have gone way ahead of him. This is because their game is different and also, they adapt and survive in pressure situations a lot better than him. That’s why Manish Pandey has been left behind,” said Nehra in a chat with Cricbuzz.

“I think there will be a rethink now. We were talking about Williamson before. In low-scoring matches, his value is redoubled. Now they will look for solid players who can finish games after getting settled. And I have no doubt that Manish Pandey might not play in the 11 from now on. You will witness some changes in this team and that’s natural as well,” opined Jadeja on Cricbuzz.
