Vijay Shankar figurs out to deal with pressure


When official news of Vijay Shankar’s choice for the restricted overs arrangement in Australia and New Zealand came through late on Saturday night, the Tamil Nadu allrounder was at that point sleeping. It was just at the break of day on Sunday as he was setting out toward training that he got some answers concerning his lady ODI call-up.

“Clearly, there is a ton of energy. I was apprehensive very Saturday night when I began getting calls getting some information about my conceivable determination. The insight from writers made me somewhat anxious,” Vijay, will’s identity joining the Indian squad on the eve of the second ODI against Australia in Adelaide, told TOI.

This will stamp Vijay’s rebound into the Indian group after that forgettable night against Bangladesh in the last of the Nidahas Trophy. Pursuing a solid 167 from 20 overs for triumph in March a year ago, the 27-year-old had worked to 17 from 19 balls before his statemant Dinesh Karthik safeguarded him and India out with a speedy fire appearance that finished in a last-ball six.

For the following couple of days, Vijay was liable to the anger of Indian fans who trolled him ceaselessly via web-based networking media. Ten months on, Vijay says he has taken in a ton about himself both as an individual and cricketer.

“It is difficult to change individuals’ observations. In any case, what I can do now is add to my group’s prosperity and win matches going ahead. Next time that I face such a circumstance, I comprehend what I ought to do and where I should hope to score. I have figured out how to deal with weight. I used to be entirely cruel on myself. I am simply hoping to appreciate everything now,” says Vijay.

The way that he did well for India ‘An’ on their voyage through New Zealand a month ago should stand him in great stead as well. In three one-day matches, he had scores of 87*, 59 and 42 and furthermore got one wicket with his medium pace.

“I am anticipating an extraordinary affair and taking in a ton. I have done well in New Zealand as of late. Certainly, the conditions are altogether different to what we get back in India. I need to dissect everything as fast as could be allowed and adjust to the conditions. On the off chance that I can do that, it will work well for me,” says Vijay.

With Hardik’s prompt future in the diversion questionable, Vijay has an extraordinary open door presently to set up himself in the set-up in front of the World Cup in May given the scarcity of crease playing allrounders in the nation. The Tamil Nadu constrained overs captain, however, wouldn’t like to get into that outlook.

“I am not considering the World Cup at all to be straightforward. It is vital to adhere to my hard working attitudes paying little heed to where I am playing. On the off chance that I begin contemplating making the World Cup squad, I don’t figure I will appreciate whatever I have with me at this moment.”
