Hardik Pandya and Vijay Shankar are two pace all-rounders that have presented themselves to the Indian team for the 2019 World Cup. As many pundits have been seen supporting one over the other, it has become a huge dilemma which one of the two is better suited for the mega-event coming up in England.
Former cricketer turned pundit/analyst Ashish Nehra believes both the players can make it to the squad.
He said, “It was really important for him, small things make a big difference and I still feel you cannot call Vijay Shankar an all-rounder. He can be your sixth or seventh bowling option, he is not as good as Hardik Pandya but definitely, he will get better with time.”
“The more he will play, he will get better and he is entitled to improve. As a batsman there is no doubt about it that he has got some really good skill set and going forward Vijay Shankar can be a match-winner for India.”
