New Delhi: While he has been a revelation in the Indian domestic circuit, Manish Pandey was yet to prove his credentials at the biggest stage.
And he did exactly that on Saturday, as India won the final match of the ODI series versus Australia, thanks to his unbeaten 104-run knock.
While MS Dhoni was struggling to time the ball in the last five overs, Pandey kept finding the gaps and was determined to reach the three-figure mark and finish the job for the Men in Blue.
It was an innings the Indian fans will remember for a very long time.
Here is how the cricket fraternity reacted to Pandey's magnificent century:
Well done @im_manishpandey on a brilliant hundred. Good start to Jasprit Bhumrah's career too.
