Indian cricketers have shown the way by managing their workload and play regularly in domestic white-ball competitions. The likes of Ravichandran Ashwin, Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul have all routinely featured for their respective states in both the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and the Vijay Hazare Trophy. Karnataka’s Manish Pandey belongs to this list, but he took it to another level, by featuring in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy Final, a day before his marriage in Mumbai.

Manish Pandey Marriage: Karnataka captain plays final a day before

Manish Pandey has been in fine form in the domestic circuit and has been a crucial influence in Karnataka’s dominant performances. Pandey, on Sunday, scored an unbeaten half-century to guide Karnataka to a fighting total of 180/5. Manish Pandey scored a 45-ball 60, laced with 4 boundaries and 2 sixes to lift his side from a precarious position after Tamil Nadu’s R Ashwin had derailed their innings with the wickets of mainstays KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal off successive deliveries. The Karnataka captain shared essential partnerships with Devdutt Padikkal and Rohan Kadam to get Karnataka to a good score. Tamil Nadu agonisingly fell short, losing the match by just a single run.
