However, on not getting selected in the team, Rayudu stirred up a controversy when he posted a comment on social media saying, “Just ordered a new set of 3D glasses to watch the World Cup.”
Further, Shankar told ICC, “I will work hard on all the aspects of my game, whenever the opportunity comes I will always try my best for the team. The last few years, from travelling, you see a lot of supporters all over the world, and they’re definitely going to be there (in England), 50/50 sometimes. It’s going to be really nice to experience that and I’m looking forward to that experience. Even if it is just one match that I win for the team, I’ll be very happy about that.”
Recently Shankar had suffered an injury on his right forearm for which he had under gone a scan where the doubts of any kind of fracture was nullified.
