For the upcoming season of IPL (Indian Premier League) 2018, Players get auction in January.
We talking about Kashmir’s "Sixer King" Manzoor Ahmed Dar (Mann Pandav) who is also called as “Mr.100 metres” who had a good knock in recent Syed Mushtaq Ali TT20 Tourny. 24yrs old, has temper to hit the ball hard, handsome and long, even with a raw willow cleft, forget an English willow. His coach and selectors swear by his raw talent and ability to hit balls out of the biggest grounds.
He gives the ball a real thump. Last year in a match with Punjab, he hit a few sixes that were 100 metres plus”.
“This boy has talent for the shorter game. Give him 12 to 15 deliveries and he will tilt the game in his team’s favour,” coachs reviewed.
Manzoor is a Weightlifter, Kabbadi player, Wood Artist and a security guard — all explain one man and converge at cricket and if luck smiles on him, he may well be in field that will bring smile on face of people.
Manzoor lives in Sonawari village of Bandipora district of Kashmir. His father is a labourer and struggles to make both ends meet. Being eldest of four siblings, he has responsibility of the family.
According to the news published in News18, Qayoom said, “Appreciate our Mr. 100 meter Sixer. He kills the ball with a lot of force”. The hard-hitting batsman juggles between a few jobs. He is a security guard at a private motor company at night and a wood craftsman in the day though he finds few hours to turn up at Srinagar’s main cricket stadium for practice.
“I would shuttle 18 km a day from office to stadium and, back but never miss my training.” Manzoor said to News18.
Arshad Bhat, Jammu and Kashmir team selector and former Ranji player told News18 Manzoor a.k.a Pandav needs a few good performances and exposure to be considered for IPL. “A bit of luck and bit of performance and he can get there,” says Bhat. Manzoor sounds confident too. “I am targeting IPL. Let us see how it goes,” he told News18 hours before his team’s crucial match.
