Rejuvenated Manish Pandey looks towards Asia Cup
Batsman Manish Pandey is aiming to seal a spot in India's iffy middle-order in ODIs. With his last ODI appearance coming against Sri Lanka last year, he is determined to make a comeback during the upcoming Asia Cup.
Currently captaining India 'B' in the Quadrangular series at Bengaluru, Pandey has stood a class apart by amassing 233 runs at a remarkable strike-rate of 93.57. More pertinently, he has remained unbeaten in all three innings thus far.
Pandey said: "I'm looking at the middle order at the moment, trying to seal that position. This (Quadrangular) series was a proving ground to get some runs and get looked at for the Asia Cup. I want to enjoy myself, there is competition, but I want to focus on what I do best."
