Manish Pandey should never play LOI format for India ever again

He would've made a good backup for Yuvi. Kings should've gone for him. 

As for the OP, he's still a good bat in ODIs. 

Kings already have Manoj Tiwary who is better than Pandey at hitting.

he should have never have played in the first place. I remember a while back someone opened a thread about 'Kumble K factor watch thread', citing selection of Karun, KL and Manish all in a bundle as suspicious. At the time I commented, Karun and KL deserved their call ups (and although have been patchy at times- have also won games for us with individual brilliance). Pandey on the other hand....

Mediocrity Pandey.

Years of IPL and has a 119 SR and barely any match winning performances to write about. Worst thing to happen was scoring a century when young as deprived the army of a willing recruit.

 

"Manish Pandey will always be remembered as the first Indian to score a century in the IPL. In one night, the 19-year-old went from being Karnataka's next big Ranji hope to entering the record books as he hit his way to the highest Twenty20 score by an Indian. That century also meant he would not have to carry out his intention of following his father into the army if he did not make it as a professional cricketer."

Innings like this will give ammunition to his supporters just like his Guru....50 in a consolidating effort but pointless and not match winning.....throw this guy out of the team  regardless

Turned out match winning in the end.. But agree with the point

It is the bowlers who won the match and Kings X1 batsmen’s brainfarts ...doesn’t justify his innings...no urgency shown...he would have played the same innings if it was 120/1 in 12 overs..ok for IPL but not a match winner

I will say that if there is a reasonably good batting team (may be KKR this time) would have chased both the scores by SRH in the last two matches. Not to take anything away from SRH bowlers though!!!

Yes...we want players with X factor who can take the score to 300+ in Odis or 180+ in T20s even in 20/4 type situations....consolidating is pointless now.

Pandey is good for one thing. He is an amazing fielder. He can play ODIs as his lack of higher gears won't hurt us much.

he hasnt done much apart from that one innings in australia, and teams hasnt even started figuring him out completely yet. Most times he himself presents his wkts. Imagine when teams sought his one side play , he wnt have anywere to hide

play him vs Pak in the next WC, u can drop him for all other matches!!!

 

 

We can play our under 19 team and still destroy your a$$, a team led by an unfit fatso and who's lead bowler is a convicted fixer is of no concern to us, play whoever the result will be the same, a phainta of epic proportions will be delivered on pakistan

Why SRH is sticking with him? Could’ve played Hooda in place of him...

They spent 11 crore on him.. trying to justify the spend probably

He should never play T20s , in ODIs he's a good fringe player to have , that's it . He's always been suited for the longer formats , has an unorthodox technique and gives an impression that he will not do well in tests , but I think he will do well everywhere but England may be .His game against the short ball and spin as a combo is top5 in the country imo . More importantly he's clutch , a perfect no 6 to have in your lineup . Of all the Karnataka batsmen I rate him only behind KL for tests but anyway that's not going to happen , we have better options too but stop picking him for the wrong format .

He is a very selfish cricketer and before you bring Rohit up...he doesn’t have the turbo gear like him ...at best has a 3rd gear....plays for notouts as well....should not even be in the fringes...we have enough talent out there.

Kohli is far more selfish than him, especially, in IPL and his selfishness was the biggest reason RCB could not qualify.

Not every one gets lucky to play in the power plays . Like I have said , he has an IPL 100 so that means he can hit just like Rohit when hes set ( agreed after wasting 50 balls Rohit is better ) . When you take 15 overs to get set , every one can get that turbo gear . The difference is where they bat .

 

Lets not over do this , as bad as he is I would rate his 100 in Aus as to 5 ODI innings by an Indian in last 2-3 years .
