Manoj Tiwary brought up his maiden triple ton in the Ranji Trophy clash between Bengal and Hyderabad. The right-handed batsman, who has represented India in just 12 ODIs and 3 T20Is, scored his triple century in Bengal’s first innings showcasing high levels of patience and classy strokeplay.
The 34-year-old’s monumental knock was glittered with 30 fours and five maximums as he rescued his side from a spot of bother at 22/2. His phenomenal 414-ball stay at the crease featured huge stands for the fifth wicket and subsequently the eighth wicket.
Tiwary last represented India in 2015, though he may have now pushed a case for a surprise call-up to the Test side following his batting heroics in the Ranji Trophy clash. "Anything is possible in this world. Confidence is my strength whether I score a zero or a hundred. I have always believed in my abilities and hard work," he later told reporters.
