Manish Pandey has blown hot and cold over the years, so much so that the selectors finally seem to have run out of patience. But there have been a few euphoric crests in the career of the busy middle-order batsman. He was the first Indian player to slam a century in the Indian Premier League, while the ton he engineered against Australia, playing just his fourth ODI, is worthy of praise as well. Pandey's crisp strokeplay found the empty pockets at the SCG and tilted the run chase in India's favour.
