Though Manish Pandey first gained limelight in IPL 2009 for becoming the first Indian to score a century in IPL while playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore, most of his success came for Kolkata Knight Riders after IPL 2011. He played a huge role in KKR’s two IPL title wins in 2012 and 2014. Who can forget his 94 (50) in the IPL 2014 final, which aced Wriddhiman Saha’s brilliant ton for the Punjab Kings.

This got him an INR 11 crore deal with Sunrisers Hyderabad and Pandey even made his India debut during this time in 2016. However, Pandey’s bat fell silent after IPL 2020 onwards and performances in the IPL never quite returned to his best. But KKR have still shown faith in the talented Pandey who cost them just INR 50 lakh and the batter will hope he winds the clock back one more.
