Vijay Shankar, batting at number 3, surprised against the New Zealand's horror innings

Delhi,11,February,2019

 

India's all-rounder Vajyay Shankar said on Sunday that he was surprised to be dropped for batting at number three and after his first tour of Australia and New Zealand, he would return home as a well-crafted cricketer. Shankar batted at number three in two of the three T20 Internationals against New Zealand. He scored 43 in 28 balls and 23 in the first match of the series.

 

 

 

He made his debut in Australia in Melbourne against Australia and played against New Zealand in three of the five ODIs and in all T-20 matches. The 28-year-old, however, may not have performed strong enough to make a claim for the World Cup spot but he impressed with his all-round ability.

 

 

 

Shankar said that he would like to play up in the batting order. He said after the loss of four runs in the third T20, "It was a matter of surprise for me when they told me to bat at number three. This is a big thing. I was ready to play in this situation. If you are playing for a team like India then you should be ready for everything. "

 

 

 

He said, "I learned a lot from these two series against Australia and New Zealand. I have not bowled too much but I learned to bowl in various situations. I learned a lot from watching senior players such as Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Mahendra Singh Dhoni in batting. ''
