Manoj Tiwary Hopes to Keep Injuries at Bay and Shine Against Bangladesh

Life has come a full circle for Manoj Tiwary. He got his maiden call-up for Bangladesh tour in 2007 but missed the action because of a dislocated shoulder. While injuries have repeatedly plagued him, Tiwary hopes his return for the ODI series against Bangladesh can prove to be a 'rebirth' of sorts.

Manoj Tiwary has a feeling of deja vu speaking about his comeback into the Indian team for the tour of Bangladesh as it all started there seven years ago.

"Injuries and Bangladesh invoke strange kind of feeling in me. It was Bangladesh in 2007, where I received a maiden call-up and then had shoulder dislocation. It's in Bangladesh that I am making a comeback in the national team. Indeed life has come a full circle for me with this call-up," the 28 year old Tiwary told PTI here on Thursday after he was named in the 15-member Indian team for the three-match ODI series in Bangladesh.

Asked whether he expected a call-up for this tour, Tiwary replied, "Look, when I was out of the squad, it was because of my knee injury and not poor form. Just before that I had scored a hundred for India A against Australia. So once I was match fit, I knew my time would come," said Bengal's most prolific run-getter in domestic cricket.
