Vijay Shankar had a night to forget in the Nidahas Trophy Final 2018 after the Tamil Nadu all-rounder missed 5 deliveries in a row from Mustafizur Rehman in the 18th over with India needing over 10 runs-an-over to win the Nidahas Trophy Final 2018. Till that point, Shankar had a great run in the Nidahas Trophy with ball and some great displays in the field but he flapped his first real chance to impress with the bat after scoring 17-ball innings of 19 in the Nidahas Trophy Final 2018. Vijay Shankar IPL 2018 performance would be worth to watch as Vijay Shankar IPL Team 2018, Delhi Daredevils have revamped their squad.

Thankfully for Shankar and Team India, Dinesh Karthik came to the rescue for his team and smashed 28 runs in just 9 deliveries to chase 34 runs in final 2 overs to win the Nidahas Trophy Final 2018 for India. It has been over 2 days since the Nidahas Trophy Final 2018 but Shankar is still hurting and thinking how things would have turned out differently.

Speaking with TOI, Shankar said: “It’s a different thing to see Mustafizur in nets and face him in the match. On another day, I wouldn’t have missed those balls in such a situation. I wouldn’t attribute it to pressure factor but I think maybe it wasn’t my day.

“Obviously, after missing the first three balls I was stiff thinking ‘I haven’t connected three on the trot’. In hindsight, I would say I should have tapped and run a single. Yet, I still scored a boundary in the final over. But the fact that I stood there till the end gave me a different experience. Having endured such an experience, I think it will keep me in good stead in the future,” added Shankar, as reported by Cricbuzz.

Vijay Shankar will play for Delhi Daredevils in IPL 2018

Despite a scary outing with the bat in the Nidahas Trophy Final 2018, Vijay Shankar will be a handy player in the IPL and Vijay Shankar IPL Team 2018 will be Delhi Daredevils. After spending a couple of seasons on the fringe with Sunrisers Hyderabad, Vijay Shankar now joins Delhi Daredevils and is expected to be the second fast-bowling all-rounder option for Delhi Daredevils alongside Chris Morris.

Vijay Shankar IPL 2018 outing will be a key one to continue his stake to remain in the Indian senior side and a good outing for Vijay Shankar IPL Team 2018 Delhi Daredevils will give India another all-rounder option along with Hardik Pandya.
