In India, a hard-hitting, seam-bowling all-rounder is an uncommon find. Manoj Bhandage, though, is a highly promising potential for Karnataka. He has played for his state in 16 T20 matches so far, but his strike rate of 154.66 attests to his uncanny ability to go over the fence.
Given that he bowls right-handed and bats left-handed, Bhandage also presents a special ambidextrous combo. He is highly regarded by insiders and may be a potential finisher.
Before the IPL 2023 auction, franchisees need to take him seriously in order to offer additional cover for their all-rounders, who bat in the middle order or lower middle order.
