Vijay Shankar looks at the varying demands of international cricket as “extra responsibility” rather than “extra pressure”, an approach that enables him to perform any role assigned by the team management. Shankar is unfazed by the fact that he doesn’t have the skill sets of someone like Hardik Pandya, who, with his power game, has lived up to the team management’s expectations on most occasions. Be it in the middle overs or towards the end, Hardik has mostly delivered.
