Vijay Shankar plays an important role in the Indian team as he will take up the No.4 batsman in the Indian line-up. He was the third person to be injured in the Indian team after Dhawan and Bhuveshwar. Shikar Dhawan was ruled out of the tournament for thumb fracture and Buvneshwar Kumar was out of two games due to a hamstring strain and Shankar’s injury is creating tension to the management.
In the case of Dhawan, the BCCI clarified about his injury but they were still saying that it is left hamstring stiffness and not a tear in Bhuvneshwar’s injury. In case if it is a tear, there are fewer chances of Bhuvneshwar to join the tournaments.
