Tiwary impressed selectors after scoring 93 runs against England in a warm up match
Despite not being selected for the first two Test matches against England, Indian all-rounder Manoj Tiwary has announced that he is still not giving up on working towards making his Test debut.
Tiwary definitely captured the attention of the national selectors after scoring 93 against England in a warm up match and noted that he will continue to impress them with his performances in the Ranji Trophy.
“There were a lot of thoughts that came into my mind when I came to know about it, but we’ve quite a few games coming up. I always try to motivate myself by thinking that I have a lot of time. I am young, and touch wood, things will fall in place. The big runs will come. I just have to be patient,” Tiwary said.
Tiwary was battling with all-rounder Yuvraj Singh and batsman Suresh Raina for the number six spot on the Test roster, but Singh got the nod from the selectors after smashing a quick-fire 59 and taking five wickets for India A as well.
“It’s a part and parcel of any sportsman’s life. I’ve taken it in a positive way and in the right spirit. I love playing for Bengal. I’m a firm believer that day is not far away when things will fall in place. It would be a dream come true if I get to debut at the Eden,” Tiwary added.
