From talking about his relationship with Ambati Rayudu to his Indian team chances and thoughts about changing his state team (Tamil Nadu), the all-rounder made the headlines in recent days. In an interview with News18, Vijay Shankar spoke about how he is capable of batting up the order.

“I’m an all-rounder, but I’m known for my batting. So just because I’m an all-rounder, it shouldn’t be like I should bat only at No. 6 or 7. I can also be someone like Jacques Kallis or Shane Watson.

They open the innings or bat at No. 3 and bowl. It’s not a compulsion that an all-rounder has to bat at No. 6-7. If I can score runs at the top, and pick wickets, it’s good for the team too, right?” Shankar claimed.

Although Vijay expressed his opinion, his references towards Kallis and Watson didn’t go down well with the fans. Several cricket fans took to social media to troll the all-rounder, sharing hilarious memes

The all-rounder started trending on Twitter alongside legend Jacques Kallis on Monday. Fans were of the opinion that the all-rounder shouldn’t compare himself to great all-rounders like Kallis and Watson.


While several users trolled Vijay online, several fans voiced their support for the all-rounder. Some felt that his remarks had been misrepresented.
