Vijay Shankar got hurt on his toe:
It has been a brilliant season so far for Vijay Shankar. Out of nowhere, he landed in the Indian team for ICC World Cup 2019 and also bagged a couple of wickets in his debut world cup game. But, unfortunately, he suffered an injury ahead of the clash against Afghanistan team.

Vijay Shankar reportedly gave the Indian team yet another injury scare. Shankar was batting in the nets on Wednesday when a yorker from Jasprit Bumrah hit the all-rounder’s toe, causing him some pain in the aftermath.
The all-rounder along with Bhuvneshwar joined the Indian team at training in Southampton on Thursday (June 20) but worked on the sides with physio Patrick Farhat. However, a team source informed PTI that there’s nothing to worry as of now.
Well, it would be interesting to see how things would pan out for the young Vijay Shankar. With a day left for India’s scheduled game, Vijay Shankar would love to get into the XI.
Meanwhile, the new reports revealed that the Indian Team management doesn’t want to push Vijay Shankar to play the game against Afghanistan. They don’t want to take any risky step, as they are confident of winning against Afghanistan. In between, Rishabh Pant or Dinesh Karthik could get the nod.
