Bowling the last over against aussies in Nagpur second ODI, Vijay Shankar dismissed Marcus Stoinis and Adam Zampa in three balls, delivering when it mattered. He helped India win the match by eight runs. Earlier he contributed 46 runs with the bat. No he has certainly made a case for himself with this performance to make the squad for the World Cup. Vijay Shankar says, 'I have said previously also that I never think about the selection or World Cup thing because it's a long way off from now. Every game is very important. I just look to give my best and win a game for the team'.
On bowling the crucial last over, Vijay Shankar says, 'I was just telling (myself) after the 43rd-44th over, I am going to bowl anytime. Maybe the last over and I should be ready to defend a total of 10 runs or 15 runs. So, I was mentally prepared for that.'
