Speaking about cricket, Vijay Shankar has failed to attract the Indian selectors ever since he was ruled out of the ICC World Cup in 2019 in England. The all-rounder from Tamil Nadu has also witnessed a dip in the form and managed to play only seven games in IPL 2020 in the UAE. His most memorable performance came against Rajasthan Royals when he helped Sunriserss Hyderabad to chase down 155 runs with the help of an unbeaten 52-run knock.
Recently, he played one match for Tamil Nadu, his state team, in the 2021 edition of the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy. In the game against Jharkhand at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata, he got run out scoring only four runs.
Vijay Shankar, meanwhile, will set his eyes in the upcoming IPL to revive his form and once again be in the reckoning for the national side.
