IPL 2023 Auction: LSG snub Manish Pandey: IPL 2023 – Indian Batter Manish Pandey has slammed Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) for not reporting the snub ahead of the IPL 2023 mini-auction. Pandey should have seen the list of players released by the Giants and met with the axe. The LSG management has not contacted the batter about not wanting to continue the contract in the IPL 2023 season. Pandey had a dismal IPL 2022 season, scoring just 88 runs from six games. The Karnataka player failed to justify his hefty price tag of Rs 4.80 crore. This could be one of the reasons for the neglect, and also LSG could be looking at another young player at the same price.

“No, I never called. I learned about it the day the list was announced. There was no real communication, but yeah, it’s good. As players, you have to be prepared. Because if you don’t play a lot of games, I understand from LSG’s point of view that they wanted to release me and get some extra money out of the kitty for some other players or whatever the plan was.” Pandey told Sportskeeda.

IPL 2023 Auction: Why was Manish Pandey snubbed by LSG?

  • Pandey, who went at number three, failed to hit a big shot. His goal from the right side only runs at a dismal looking strike rate of 110.00.
  • With 150 runs and a number three strike rate like Rahul Tripathi, Sanju Samson and Suryakumar Yadav, Pandey failed to pick up the pace.
  • With LSG already having two leading role players in KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock, they needed an aggressive game-changing number three strike.
  • Pandey failed to make that push and hence LSG thought not to retain him.
  • Also, with a whopping 4.80 crores, LSG thought of investing in some hard hitting players.
  • With good domestic players like Samarth Vyas, Snavir Singh and Jagadeesan, LSG can now go for one of the three players without Pandey.

However, the former Karnataka captain says he is working on his strike rate. Apart from the strike rate, another area of ​​concern for Pandey is his lack of consistency. He is working on it too.

“Obviously the strike rate is very important. But at the same time, I’m someone who likes to spend some time on the door. And when set, I look to be great. So that’s how I played. And there are days when the batting doesn’t click for you or you don’t get many runs. But that’s how I play and I’ll probably work on it as much as I can over time. I want to become a better player every day. That’s my plan.” Manish Pandey told Sportskeeda.

“I just want to work on my consistency. This is how the dough is measured. If you are consistently scoring and performing for your team, you are in a positive state of mind. If I can perform consistently every game, I’ll be in a happy place. That’s the only thing I’m working on, apart from the holiday factor and everything else I’ve got.’ he added.
