India vs Australia 2019: 3 Indian players for whom the ODI series is very crucial
- It's now or never for these cricketers to make a mark before the World Cup
#2 Vijay Shankar
Vijay Shankar is naïve to the International arena, as he has played only four ODIs and nine T20Is till this date. Since there are not too many fast-bowling all-rounders available in India, Vijay Shankar did not need to wait for too many years to make his International debut.
With India resting few of their key players during the Nidahas Trophy last year, Vijay made his T20I debut against Sri Lanka. Though he is infamously remembered for his struggling knock at the finals against Bangladesh in that series, he has matured a lot as a player in recent times. His performances in the recently concluded New Zealand series show his development as a player.
Since Hardik Pandya will miss the upcoming ODI series against Australia due to injury, it is high time for Vijay Shankar to display his full potential to the cricketing world. A strong showing in the Australia series will definitely fetch him a ticket to the World Cup.Published 28 Feb 2019, 16:31 IST
