Indian Allrounder Vijay Shankar Marries Vaishali Visweswaran:
Last year in August, Vijay Shankar had shared the photos of his engagement with Vaishali.
Meanwhile, Vijay Shankar played only one league stage match for Tamil Nady in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy that too against Jharkhand. Tamil Nadu has entered the semi-final which will be played against Rajasthan at Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad.
The fast bowling allrounder is now likely to feature in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 for SunRisers Hyderabad. In the last edition, he played seven matches in which he scored 97 runs at an average of 101.04 while also picked four wickets in the tournament. His best in that season came against Rajasthan Royals.
Shankar came up with a superb bowling performance as he dismissed Rajasthan Royals star Jos Buttler (9) and conceded just 15 runs from three overs. Talking about his batting, he was promoted to number four and reposed the team management’s faith in him with his first half-century since 2018.
Vijay Shankar got sidelined from Team India’s squad after he surfaced injury during the World Cup 2019. He was called as the replacement in the tournament. Unfortunately, he was replaced because of an injury.
