In what can be called another blow to an already injury stricken side, Vijay Shankar has now been ruled out of the World Cup with a toe injury, reports New Indian Express.
Earlier what seemed to be a niggle off a Jasprit Bumrah yorker at the nets, has now taken a turn for the worst, ruling out the all-rounder for the entire tournament.
Less than four-months-old in the international circuit, Shankar was picked up in team India's 15-member squad for the 2019 World Cup, opening gates for inevitable debates about the Tamil Nadu all-rounder's capabilities.
Shankar had his moments before being sidelined, becoming only the third bowler in history to take a wicket off his first ball in the World Cup.
Mayank Agarwal may be the back up player who'll be required to fill in for Shankar for the remainder of the World Cup.
