Mohali. It was a nail-biting contest towards the end of India vs Australia 2nd ODI, with either side possessing the capability to snatch a win. Neither did India dominate the match nor did Australia manage to gain momentum throughout. But it was Vijay Shankar’s clinical last over that ended the seesaw contest in favor of India.
Vijay Shankar has been in and out of the team and there are fewer chances that he would make it to the world cup squad. But yesterday’s match-winning performance has also put question marks on his career. Hardik Pandya, the victim of Karan Johar’s chat show ‘Koffee with Karan’ was seen by sources while giving the contact number of Vijay Shankar to Karan.
Karan has a reputation for spoiling careers. Not just movies, but in Cricket too. Hardik knows one fact that to avoid the competition provided by Vijay Shankar for the all-rounder’s position, it makes sense that he should be invited to Karan’s show. He was first planning to give Ravindra Jadeja’s number to Karan but then Ravindra’s performance was not so good that it would provide any competition to Hardik’s place in the team, so he finally decided that Vijay Shankar should be the man he targets.
Talking about world cup positions, KL Rahul is finding it tough to get into the ODI setup. But he will not require the help of Karan Johar as Shikhar Dhawan and Ambati Rayadu’s performance will kind of make a way for his inclusion in the team.
