Mandeep Singh overview

Mandeep Singh is an Indian cricketer. He was born on 18th December 1991 in Jalandhar, Punjab. He is nicknamed ‘Man Deep Singerringer’. Mandeep is a top-order right-hand batsman and a right-arm medium pacer.

Mandeep’s father, Hardev Singh was an athletics coach who initially did not support Mandeep to continue with cricket. But gradually, when Mandeep started performing in the junior level of the game it was his father who stood by his son. His elder son Harvinder Singh was also a cricketer and Mandeep began to learn the basics of the game from his elder brother.

Mandeep's dedication and grit for the game came out in 2020. Mandeep heard about his father's death before his franchise team King XI Punjab's crucial match against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL 2020 held in UAE. Still, Mandeep did not leave UAE, attended the first rites through a video-call, and finally dedicated the victory in that crucial match to his late father. Indian captain Virat Kohli was moved to have seen Mandeep's dedication towards the game and mentioned Mandeep ‘Lion-hearted’ in his twits.

Early signs

Mandeep Singh started playing Burlton Park in Jalandhar but had to back out due to the fees of Rs 500 at the coaching center. His father was not keen to pay it that time. But later on, following the coach's advice, Mandeep's father's interest grew and he started providing support after Mandeep got selected for an under-15 camp at National Cricket Academy (NCA). Then he was also selected the vice-captain of the under-19 Indian squad for the World Cup in 2010. Mandeep made his debut in first-class cricket in the same year in a Ranji Trophy match against Himachal Pradesh. He got the chance of batting in the first innings only and scored an impressive 53.
