The Indian allrounder Vijay Shankar last featured with the team during the 2019 World Cup. Since then, he has not been called back into the team. Well, the player is also not focusing much on making a comeback in the national side.

During the World Cup last year, Vijay was ruled out of the tournament because of toe injury which he sustained during the net session. The Tamil Nadu player had recovered from the injury but didn’t earn the call from the Indian team. But he has been a regular part of India A.

The right-hand batsman Shankar said that he is not focusing on his selection whereas he is trying to give his best wherever he plays.

I generally don’t think where I stand or what I should do to get back into the Indian side. Last year, I never thought I will get into the World Cup,” he said.

My basic thinking is wherever I play, I should look to win matches for the team. If I keep doing it, I am sure I will go back playing for the country. I have to keep improving my cricket so that I can be the best for my team,” Vijay Shankar told Sportstar.

Amid the lockdown because of Coronavirus, the player is facing difficulty to practice.

Shankar said, “I am doing a bit of training at home with the basic equipment that I have. A little bit of shadow practice but can’t do more than this.

I have a practice facility but I thought of not doing it there now. Someone had to come and help me out, so the person had to travel [which would mean breaking the social distancing law]. So I am not calling anyone till the government makes an official statement [that the disease is in control,” he added.

The 29-year old Shankar has played 12 ODIs and nine T20I matches and scored 223 and 101 runs. He has also picked up four ODI and five T20I wickets respectively.
