BIO: Manoj Kumar Tiwary is an Indian cricketer who is an aggressive right-handed batsman. Tiwary gained attention from selectors and fans through his strokeplay and high run-scoring in Indian domestic cricket. His front foot play and ability to attack the bowler have often drawn parallels with England's Kevin Pietersen. He made his debut against Australia in the 2008 Commonwealth Bank tri-series in which he scored only 2 runs in his only innings. He was later included in the India team for the West Indies tour of 2011, as a replacement for Yuvraj Singh. Tiwary played the 4th and 5th ODI's in the series. He later got picked for England's tour of India in October. He played in the 5th ODI and scored 24 runs. Tiwary was subsequently named in the squad for the ODI's against West Indies in November–December. India won the 5th match by 34 runs and he was awarded the man-of-the-match for this match-winning knock. After being made to sit in the reserves for 14 successive matches following the century, he made an auspicious comeback as an all-rounder, replacing leg spinner Rahul Sharma against Sri Lanka at Colombo as he took 4/61 from his 10 overs with his leg-breaks to restrict the hosts to 251/8. India eventually won the match as Virat Kohli scored an unbeaten ton. Tiwary was also picked for the Commonwealth Bank tri-series against Australia and Sri Lanka, but he didn't play any matches. Tiwary was also selected for the lone T20 against South Africa which was played in celebration of 150 years of settlement of Indians in South Africa.
