World Cup 2019: Vijay Shankar gets trolled as India marches on

New Delhi: India’s new No. 4 Vijay Shankar was heavily trolled for his continual dismal performance. While India won its fifth consecutive match in the World Cup, Shankar’s inclusion in the team has become questionable.

He managed to score just 14 runs off 19 balls before falling to Kemar Roach in Manchester on Thursday. The dismissal continued Shankar’s string of low scores with the bat in this World Cup (with the highest score of just 29 vs Afghanistan).

With his continual unimpressive performances, the demand for Rishabh Pant in the team has also increased.

India already has a good variety in its bowling department with six bowlers in its kitty. What the team needs is a batsman who can give a good backbone to the opening partnership.

India will meet England on Sunday, which is very much a do-or-die match for the hosts. India’s need of a solid No. 4 was highlighted even after a comfortable win against the Caribbean. And England would not let the match slip through their hands. India has to be at its best for the next encounter in the cricketing extravaganza.

Meanwhile, the Twitterati had a field day in trolling Vijay Shankar.
