Bengal batsman Manoj Tiwary has opened up his experience in playing with Hardy Sandhu for India Under-19. The right-handed batsman even took to his official Twitter handle to reveal that he made his Youth Test debut along with Hardy Sandhu. For the unversed, Hardy Sandhu also known as Hardavinder Singh Sandhu is an Indian singer and actor.

The first song of his career was Tequilla Shot, and he gained instant fame with Soch (2013) and Joker (2014), which were written by Jaani. Sandhu made his acting debut in Yaaran Da Katchup (2014). Interestingly, his song “Soch” was remade for the 2016 Bollywood film Airlift. His song “Naah” was remade for the movie Bala as “Naah Goriye” with singer Swasti Mehul.


Hardy Sandhu played the bat-ball game for over a decade as a fast bowler, but unexpectedly sustained an injury which forced him to quit playing the game in 2007. He then switched his focus from sports to singing. He first took vocal training for over eighteen months and performed his first song Tequila Shot composed by V. Grooves.

Manoj Tiwary did not mention the name of the person who sent him the screenshot. However, he was delighted for Hardy Sandhu while also wishing him tonnes of hits and happiness in the years to come. “Gaane ka talent chupa ke rakha tha tab huh @harrdysandhu Someone sent me this screenshot. Super happy for u bro. May God always bless u wit loads of record hits and happiness,” Manoj Tiwary’s caption read on Twitter.

Last month, Manoj Tiwary slammed a scintillating maiden triple ton for Bengal against Hyderabad in the Ranji Trophy Group A match. After making his presence count on the pitch, Manoj Tiwary said that he hasn’t ruled out the possibility of playing for India again.

The 34-year-old Manoj Tiwary has represented India in 12 ODIs and 3 T20Is and was last seen in cricketing action in 2015 against Zimbabwe. Since then, he has been playing domestic cricket. Tiwary scored his maiden first-class triple century to put his team in a good position.

He stole the spotlight with his unbeaten 303 from 414 deliveries at a strike rate of 73.19. His sensational knock lasted around 10 hours and 30 minutes. Tiwary’s magnificent knock came at a time when he went unsold in the IPL auction.
