All-rounder player Vijay Shankar has been out of the ICC World Cup-2015 due to injury in leg. He had Jaspreet Bumrah’s ball in the nets. The injury was not looking much serious in the beginning but later became quite serious. Now BCCI can formally call Karnataka batsman batsman Mayank Agarwal as his option to join the team. Earlier, Shikhar Dhawan also returned after leaving the World Cup in the middle of the injury. Star bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar is currently out for injury due to injury.
After injury during the practice season, Vijay Shankar was rested in the last match. In place of Shankar, Rishabh Pant was given a chance in the team. Earlier, it was expected that Shankar’s injury was not serious and he could return to the team. However, it has now been clarified that this all-rounder’s journey has ended because of injury in this world.
How Shankar’s performance

Among them are Pakistan (15), Afghanistan (29) and West Indies (14). His maximum score was 29 runs. Shankar has bowled only against Pakistan in three matches. In this, he took 2 for 22 runs
Dhawan and Bhuvneshwar out of World Cup team
Shikhar Dhawan has already been out of the World Cup due to the fracture of thumb and Bhuvneshwar Kumar is out of 2 matches due to the hamstring strain. Shankar’s injury can increase the management of the team management. Rishabh Pant can be given a chance at their place, but all the matches ahead in the tournament are very important for India.
Kartik, Pant or Jadeja can get any chance
Some cricket experts believe that before the semi-final, India will have to play two important matches. In such a situation, giving a chance to veteran Dinesh Karthik can be a sensible decision. Many former players are also demanding inclusion of Ravindra Jadeja in the team. Jadeja is able to perform well with the ball and bat and he is also one of the best fielders of the team. Captain Virat Kohli showed faith in young player Rishabh Pant in an important match against England.
