Profile

When 17-year-old Ishwar Pandey accompanied his friend for a selection trial for a local team in his hometown of Rewa in Madhya Pradesh in 2007, he had no idea that he would return with a chance to play competitive cricket. Pandey had never a touched a cricket ball before. His father, a retired junior officer in the army, wanted his son to become a doctor. Once Pandey was selected in the state Under 19 team and then got a chance to train at the MRF Pace Foundation in Chennai though, his father’s plans went kaput.

 

Pandey’s first-class career started with a forgettable season in 2010, where he played only three Ranji Trophy matches. However, everything changed rapidly over the next few years. He was the highest wicket-taker in the 2012-13 season with 48 wickets at an average of 21. That won him a place in the Rest of India squad for the Irani Cup, an Indian Premier League contract with Pune Warriors India, and a spot in the India A squad for the tour of South Africa in August 2013.

 

Pandey finished the South Africa tour as the joint-highest wicket taker and was immediately rewarded with a maiden national call-up. He was selected for the Test and One-Day International squads for the 2014 tour of New Zealand, but could not make it to any of the playing XIs. A shift to Chennai Super Kings for the 2014 IPL and a decent season later, he was picked in the Indian Test squad for the tour of England.
