Manoj Tiwary will come back to the Bengal squad.


Former Indian hitter Manoj Tiwary is reportedly planning to reconsider his retirement decision and play first-class cricket for Bengal immediately. Notably, the right-handed batter announced the end of his career on social media on August 3.

After meeting with Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) President Snehasish Ganguly, the 37-year-old batter reportedly changed his mind about retirement and is set to make an official announcement at a press conference on Tuesday, August 8.

The absence of a seasoned cricketer has left a significant void in Bengal’s middle order. For those who are unaware, Bengal won the Ranji Trophy last year, therefore his return will be a major relief for the team. In the top match, which was contested at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata, Saurashtra defeated Bengal.

Manoj Tiwary, who made his first-class debut in December 2004, has scored 9908 runs in 141 games with 29 hundred and 45 fifties at an average of 48.56. The 37-year-old is only 92 runs away from breaking the 1000-run barrier. The aggressive Bengal batter astonished everyone by scoring 796 runs at an average of 99.50 in the 2006-2007 Ranji Trophy. Notably, his performance that year surpassed Bengal’s records and won him a place on India’s team for the trip to Bangladesh.
