Vijay Shankar.. This all-rounder from Tamil Nadu has been selected for Team India in the 2019 World Cup tournament. Describing him as a three-dimensional player, the then selector MSK Prasad took him into the team. The selection of Shankar for the World Cup and not the star player Ambati Rayudu, who was already in the team, became a hot topic of discussion. Ambati Rayudu’s tweet at that time also went viral. Rayudu’s tweet saying ‘I will watch the World Cup in 3D glasses’ has become a sensation. Vijay Shankar played only three matches in the World Cup. He dropped out of the tournament midway due to injury. Gradually he also lost his place in Team India. He did not impress much in the last two IPL seasons. With this, he was singled out on social media. They trolled saying that the 3D player has turned into a gully player. But right now the same Vijay Shankar is supporting Ranji. He is trying to grab the selectors’ attention with back-to-back centuries in Ranji Trophy 2022-23. Recently, Vijay Shankar scored a century in the Elite Group-B match against Assam. He scored 112 runs off 187 balls with 7 fours and a six. In this match, the Tamil Nadu team registered a great victory over Assam by an innings of 70 runs. This is a hat-trick century for Vijay. Prior to this match, he also registered three-digit scores against Maharashtra (107) and Mumbai (103).
In 2018-19, Vijay Shankar played 12 ODIs and 9 T20Is for Team India. But he lost his place as fast as he got into the team. Now he is trying hard to enter Team India again with Ranji performance. Vijay Shankar is likely to get a place in the Test team with this performance. Because Hardik Pandya’s place is vacant in Team India’s Test squad. With this, there is a possibility that Vijayshankar will be useful for the team both as a bowler and as a batter. We have to wait and see what decision the selectors will take in his case.
