Pandey ready for a fresh start with the Capitals

With David Warner and Prithvi Shawn opening the innings for DC, Pandey might be an ideal contender for the number 3 spot. In last season, Australia all-rounder Mitchell Marsh batted at that spot for the Capitals. However, given his affair with injuries, Pandey can be an ideal replacement for Marsh. It must be noted that Pandey most runs in IPL have come when he has batted in the number 3 position.

Having started his IPL career with Mumbai Indians back in 2008, Pandey had his golden run with KKR from IPL 2014 to 2017. The right-handed batter played a match-winning knock in the IPL 2014 final. Apart from that, he played several crucial knocks for the two-time champions. In IPL 2018, Sunrisers Hyderabad found it fit to spend Rs 11 crores on him. However, the 33-year-old’s career graph has only experienced a downward curve ever since.

He found a new home in Lucknow Super Giants in IPL 2022. However, he failed to perform for the IPL debutants. He scored only 88 runs in six matches. But having said that, it should also be mentioned that Pandey is a vastly experienced campaigner in IPL. The right-handed batter has amassed 3648 runs in 160 matches at an average of 29.90 and a strike rate of 121.52.
