Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) batter Manish Pandey was recently spotted fetching a ball in the bushes after hitting a towering six during one of the training sessions.
SRH are currently in the UAE preparing for the second phase of IPL 2021, scheduled to commence on September 19. The Orange Army has a lot of catching up to do after managing only one win in seven games in the first half of the tournament.
In a recent video uploaded by Sunrisers Hyderabad on their social media handles, Manish Pandey went ball fetching after smacking a big hit. They captioned the video:
"Who hits the ball will find the ball."
Manish Pandey successfully managed to find the ball from the dense bushes. While handing over the white cherry, the middle-order batter said:
"That's how you find the ball."
The 32-year-old was the lone shining star in SRH's fragile middle-order in the first half of IPL 2021. Manish Pandey amassed 193 runs from five matches at an average of 48.25.
However, his strike-rate varied between 120-125, which earned him criticism after the Hyderabad-based franchise struggled to change gears in death overs.
