Colombo: In the ODI series against Sri Lanka, all the youngsters took the opportunity. While Prithviraj Shah, Ishant Kishan, Deepak Chahar, Rahul Chahar and Sanju Samson all excelled in their respective opportunities, the experienced Manish Pandey was at the forefront of the disappointment.
Manish Pandey, who got a chance in all three ODIs, could not score much despite the pressure. Maneesh’s scores in the three matches were 26, 37 and 11. Former India captain Virender Sehwag has said that Manish Pandey will not be in the ODI squad for the time being.
Pandey is a player who has got a chance in all three matches. Hence the golden opportunity he got to maintain his position. Despite no significant pressure in all three matches, Pandey was unable to increase his scoring rate. Sehwag told Cricket Buses that Pandey was therefore the highest-scoring batsman in the series against Sri Lanka.
Sehwag said the average performance against Sri Lanka was temporary but would pave the way for Pandey to make the ODI squad. It will be longer or longer. Sehwag said that Pandey had faded away from Suryakumar Yadav and Ishant Kishan and would therefore be considered in the middle order instead of Pandey in the upcoming matches.
