Indian all-rounder Vijay Shankar was trolled for sharing a body transformation picture on social media.
“The sweat, the time, the devotion. It pays off! #TransformationTuesday,” Vijay Shankar captioned the photo on Twitter and Instagram on Tuesday.
An all-rounder who bats right-handed and bowls right-arm medium pace last played for India in a World Cup match against West Indies on June 27 and had left midway during the tournament owing to a toe injury.

However, Shankar’s body transformation picture didn’t go out well, and fans trolled him for not focusing on cricket as much as on his body.
So much efforts for removing the zipper? 🤷🏻♂️

Facial hair and clothing off are the only two differences one can make. You may have had a 6pack under that sweatshirt who knows ?

Shankar sustained a toe injury while facing a Yorker from Jasprit Bumrah in the nets, forcing him to leave the World Cup campaign.
He made a comeback in the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) and was included in India A squad for a series against South Africa A. He, however, was soon ruled out of the series due to thumb injury.
