8 runs needed off 12 balls, two set batsmen at the crease. Everyone thought that team India will stroll past West Indies and register a thumping victory, but what followed later was a completely different story.
With 1 run needed off the last ball of the innings, Manish Pandey managed to scrape up a single and escaped a run out in the process. This led to an outburst on Twitter.
Many people started questioning Ravi Shastri’s decision of sending Manish Pandey instead of Dinesh Karthik or Krunal Pandya. A few netizens went even harder and started claiming Manish is unfit to stay in the squad.
Here are a few such reactions to Manish’s nervy innings( 4 runs from 6 balls).
Seriously ? What's the reason behind Manish Pandey staying in T20 squad even after these many flops!? Ambatti Rayudu is best choice out there but found only in ODI squad alone !!! #T20 #WIvIND #IPL #BCCI #INDvsWI #RishabhPant 👏 and #Dhawan Proved finally 🤭
