Against KKR, Vijay Shankar batted 63 off only 24 balls.

The Gujarat Titans lost to the Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2023 despite a 63-run knock from Vijay Shankar off just 24 balls.

Recently, Vijay Shankar established himself as a regular contributor to the Indian white-ball cricket squad. The all-rounder was also included in India’s ODI World Cup team for 2019. However, Shankar struggled to make the Indian team after the event ended. But after seeing his heroics in the Indian Premier League 2023 match against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), former India head coach Ravi Shastri made some fascinating “World Cup” comments.

Against the Knight Riders, Shankar went on a rampage, hitting 63 runs off 24 balls, striking at a pace of 262.50. He contributed 204 runs to Gujarat’s total by hitting 4 fours and 5 sixes.

“Vijay was selected for the World Cup because of his extraordinary talent. I’m relieved that he hasn’t given up and is instead trying to get back on track. You know he’s been through a lot, and he’s even had surgery, but he’s come back stronger than before “After seeing Viijay’s performance against KKR, Shastri spoke on Star Sports.

“Excellent hitting today because he is a clean striker of the ball, he possesses a variety of strokes, and he can smash the ball exceptionally far thanks to his reach and height. Fantastic to see. The Gujarat Titans’ strength lies in this same area. In the late innings, they can rely on some heavy hitters. They are a risky team to face late in the innings if they get off to a good start “the former head coach of India said.

Gujarat would have won the game and Shankar would have been a strong candidate for Player of the Match if not for the chaos caused by Rinku Singh in the final five balls.
