His 394 runs from 7 games for Punjab in the 2015-16 Vijay Hazare Trophy forced the selectors to give him a go in the national colours as he led the batting charts in the fifty overs format in that season.
Mandeep scored an attractive fifty in only his second T20I against Zimbabwe to hand India a handsome win by 10 wickets. This after they had suffered a shock defeat at the hands of the hosts in the first T20I. Mandeep's first-class numbers have never shot from the roof but his consistency has been his biggest enemy.
IPL through the years
His impressive show in the domestic circuit earned him an IPL contract from Kolkata Knight Riders in 2010, but he could not do much in the three games that he played in that season. He moved to Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) the next season but the story was no different. However, in 2012, he ended IPL-5 as KXIP's highest run-getter and also won the 'Rising Star of the Tournament' award as he piled 432 runs from 16 games in But his numbers fell like a pack of cards in the next season - IPL 2013 - as he averaged only 20 in the 16 games that he played.

However, RCB persisted with him and bought him for INR 1.40 crore at the 2018 auctions. As a ‘finisher’, Mandeep scored 252 runs in 14 games. In 2019, he will return to his home franchise as RCB traded him in exchange for Marcus Stoinis
