He scored 324 runs, including two half-centuries, in 15-matches for the Steve Smith-led, now-defunct side.advertisementHowever, in 2018, Tiwary managed only 47 runs from five matches for Kings XI Punjab.Tiwary, who has played 12 ODIs and 3 T20Is for India, has faced quite a few setbacks during his long cricketing career. Days before his scheduled ODI debut against Bangladesh in 2007, the Bengal cricketer injured his shoulder and was sidelined from the schedule.After making his ODI debut in which he was cleaned up by a Brett Lee yorker on 2, Tiwary had to wait nearly three years for his second match in the 50-over format. After scoring his maiden ODI century in 2011, Tiwary waited for an year to get his next opportunity to play for the senior national team.Meanwhile, Tiwary thanked his fans on social media after several users consoled the India cricketer. The 33-year-old has played a total of 98 IPL matches and has scored 1695 runs.’Can’t digest the fact I won’t be part of IPL 2019′”Really appreciated the fact that U al have shown so much love nd care through ur replies to my last tweet. Still I cannot digest that fact that I won’t be part of IPL 2019 this coming season but I know that’s the reality in which I have to live now and move on from here and keep focusing on the things which I can control (sic),” Tiwary wrote in a separate post.”And to the ones who al have criticized me, I request you to first get into my shoe nd than start making such comments for me. The experiences which I have gone through I don’t think anyone has gone through it and I will open up about it later in my future for sure or may be earlier,” the Bengal captain added.A total of 60 players, including 20 overseas stars, were sold at the auction on Tuesday with teams spending a total of Rs 106.80 crore.Also Read | IPL’s youngest crorepati has a long-cherished dream: A selfie with Virat KohliAlso Read | Didn’t expect to get Yuvraj for Rs 1 crore, says MI owner Akash AmbaniAlso See:last_img
