Young all-rounder, Vijay Shankar has been included in the Indian team for the last two Tests against Sri Lanka.

Vijay Shankar was surprised by his sudden call-up to the Indian Cricket Team, in place of in-form Hardik Pandya. But captain Virat Kohli has revealed the reasons for Vijay Shankar’s maiden call-up. During his conference, Kohli has said that the Indian team management is on the search for new all-rounders, who can step-up for the team when needed other than the regular Hardik Pandya.

That’s why this promising young all-rounder from Tamil Nadu was included in the Indian team for the first time. He also said that Hardik Pandya will remain as the first choice, but they also need backups for him. Before the start of the second Test match in Nagpur from November 24 and Kohli said during his press conference “Hardik Pandya is our first priority as an all-rounder, but we need some more players who have the same talent.

We need a good all-rounder whom we can mold and make a backup all-rounder for us.When we travel overseas, his importance gets even more increased. The aim of bringing him into the team is to make him aware of the set-up of the team.

So that he can gel up with the other players in the team and find out what is exactly going on in the dressing room. Apart from this, he knows about his role and what the team needs from him, and what exactly needs to be done to achieve it.

Kohli praised Vijay Shankar and said “He is a very good cricketer and a very good fielder. Apart from this, he bowls quite well as well, so you can easily get 10-12 overs from him.I have seen him playing in the nets and he really plays very well.

Author’s take:

Vijay Shankar was part of Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL and in the 30 first-class matches he’s played so far, his batting average has been in-and-around 50 and he is also a pretty useful bowler who can take wickets for the team when needed. Plus given that the Nagpur pitch is also expected to be helpful for the fast bowlers, his inclusion could make a difference.
