IPL 2019: 3 Players who could be X-factor for their teams
- 3 players who failed in IPL 2018 but could be the X-factor for their teams in IPL 2019.
#2 Manish Pandey
In IPL 2018, he scored just 284 runs from 15 matches at a mediocre average of 25.81 and a strike rate of 115.14. These numbers don't do justice with his aptitude as he is capable of doing much better than this. The first Indian centurion in IPL, Manish Pandey was purchased by Sunrisers Hyderabad last season for a hefty sum of INR 11 crores but he failed to live up to his price tag as he could not perform according to his calibre.
In his IPL career, the 29-year-old has scored 2499 runs from 109 innings at an average of 28.08 and a strike rate of 119.57 with 114 being his highest.
Manish Pandey was retained by SRH for the approaching season. Hence he will surely want to make a mark in IPL 2019.
It will be worth watching if he could live up to the expectations this time around.Published 24 Feb 2019, 15:08 IST
