All-rounder Vijay Shankar has been ruled out of the remainder of the ICC Cricket World Cup after he suffered a toe fracture. Vijay was struck on his left boot by a Jasprit Bumrah yorker during a practice session nearly a week ago. But the injury was not expected to be a serious one and Shankar played matches against Afghanistan and West Indies but the injury flared up before India’s last game versus England, which the hosts won comfortably, handing India their first loss of the tournament.
Vijay did not play in the match and Rishabh Pant replaced him in the playing 11. Mayank Agarwal will replace Vijay Shankar.
