WC 2019: 3 Reasons why Vijay Shankar was selected in the world cup squad

On Monday, the Indian selection committee and BCCI announced the 15-member Indian squad for the World Cup 2019 which is scheduled to start from 30 May in England and Wales.

Meanwhile, some players exclusion in the squad has surprised few people, especially Rishabh Pant and Ambati Rayudu place. But Vijay Shankar was the biggest highlight of the 15-member Indian cricket team.

The Tamil Nadu all-rounder Vijay Shankar, as impressed the national selectors with his performance in a short time. He has been selected in the team as the third all-rounder along with Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja.

So today in this article we will see the 3 reasons, why Vijay Shankar was selected in the 15-member squad.

3. Versatility is the key for Vijay:

In the last few months, Vijay Shankar has emerged as one of the top all-rounders of the Indian team. Including him in the 15-member team means that team management would like to take full advantage of his versatility.

2. The solution of number 4 position:

MSK Prasad believes that Shankar is very important in providing balance to the team and he has the ability to perform well in the pressure.

So, the bad form of Rayudu proved to be a bonus for this all-rounder. Most notably, batting on number four against Australia and New Zealand, Vijay has played several important innings. So in this way, the Indian team has got an excellent batsman at number 4 slot.

1. Sixth Bowling Options:

On pitches of England, medium and fast bowlers gets both bounce and swing, which the team can take advantage of. In such case, Vijay Shankar can disturb the batsmen with the seams in the middle overs.

If the Indian team goes with 3 pacers and a spinner, Hardik Pandya will play the role of the 5th bowler but we have seen that in the mid-overs he prove to be very expensive, then Shankar's importance in such a situation increases even more.
