Manoj-Tiwary-1 Manoj Tiwary Cricket

Former
Indian cricketer Manoj Tiwary has decided to reverse his retirement and return
to first-class cricket for Bengal with immediate effect. According to media
reports, the right-handed batter changed his mind after discussions with
Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) President Snehasis Ganguly, brother of Sourav
Ganguly.
The 37-year-old took to his Instagram handle last Thursday and
announced his retirement. However, Manoj is set to make a comeback to
first-class cricket and announce his decision officially through a press
conference on August 8th, Tuesday. Under his leadership, Bengal finished as the
runners-up in the Ranji Trophy last year. Hence, an experienced cricketer
leaving the team will create a major void in the team’s middle-order. Manoj,
who has featured in 141 first-class games, has accumulated 9908 runs averaging
48.56 with 29 centuries. Hence, the 37-year-old is only 92 runs shy of the
10000-run milestone. As far as international cricket goes, he played 15 games,
12 of which are one-day internationals. Manoj scored a one-day hundred
against the West Indies in Chennai in a winning cause. But he hasn’t donned the
national colours since 2015.
