Profile

A hard-hitting batsman from West Bengal, whose inclination to charge down the pitch to a bowler and favour the front foot drew comparisons to his idol Kevin Pietersen, Manoj Tiwary’s name had cropped up during selection meetings after his impressive showing in the 2006-07 Ranji Trophy where he scored 796 runs from seven matches. He was to debut against Bangladesh in 2007 but the plan was thwarted: he sustained an injury while practicing on the eve of the match and had to return home. When he finally debuted in early 2008, flown to Australia as an emergency replacement, he ended up having his stumps uprooted by Kolkata Knight Riders team-mate Brett Lee, with only two runs to his name. He remained on the fringes of national selection, finally getting the opportunity to take the field again in 2011. His first few innings upon his return to the side were unremarkable but he was able to end the year on a positive note, with a match-winning 104 not out against the West Indies that heralded his arrival on the international stage and showed the faith in his talent was not misplaced. Tiwary was bought by Delhi Daredevils at the 2008 IPL auctions. Although he returned to his roots with Kolkata Knight Riders, being traded to them before IPL 2010, it was only in 2011 he enjoyed a profitable season with them amassing 359 runs, the third highest for his team.
