New Delhi: Indian all-rounder Vijay Shankar has been out of the team for a long time. Since World Cup 2019, Shankar has not been able to find a place in the team again. He used to get a place in the team as a fast bowling all-rounder, but now he is being ignored constantly. Meanwhile, Shankar has now made a big statement on not being selected in the team.
‘I fared better than the rest of the players’
Vijay Shankar, who did not have a consistent place in the team, said that he wanted to stay in the team, not just because the role of fast bowler all-rounder Hardik Pandya has now changed, but at that time people believed in his abilities. Was Shankar told India Today, ‘I have already said that I do not like to compare. But if you want to compare, then I think I have done better than most of the players.
Vijay Shankar further said, ‘I don’t want to come into the Indian team just because I am an all-rounder, and I can perform with bat and ball. This case should be justified. I want to be in the team so that people have confidence in my abilities.
Shankar is disappointed at not getting a place
Vijay Shankar was a part of Team India in the 2019 World Cup. He took a wicket with his first ball in the World Cup against Pakistan. But after the injury, he withdrew from the middle of the tournament. Shankar further said, it is certain that whoever represented the country once, will like to play again. When I made good runs and despite this I was not given a chance, then it definitely disappointed.
