The Indian all-rounder, Vijay Shankar recently shared a body transformation picture on social media but it failed to impress most of his fans and followers, who decided to troll the Indian all-rounder.

On Tuesday, posting the comparison picture on Twitter and Instagram, Shankar wrote: “The sweat, the time, the devotion. It pays off! #TransformationTuesday.” The 28-year-old fast-bowling all-rounder last played his international match for India in a World Cup match against the West Indies. Shankar was ruled out of the World Cup due to a toe injury and couldn’t make a comeback to the Indian team after that.

Shankar impressed another Indian fast-bowling all-rounder, Hardik Pandya and middle-order batsman, Shreyas Iyer as they applauded his transformation on Instagram.

However, Shankar’s shirtless picture didn’t go well among some Twitter users, who trolled him for not focusing on cricket as much as his body.

Shankar was forced to leave the World Cup campaign midway when he sustained a toe injury due to a yorker bowled by Jasprit Bumrah in the nets. At the time of announcing India’s 15-member World Cup squad, India’s chief selector MSK Prasad had justified selecting Shankar in the squad citing his “three-dimensional skills”.

Ambati Rayudu, who was overlooked for the number one spot because of Shankar, had taken a dig at Prasad’s statement with a cheeky social media post. “Just Ordered a new set of 3d glasses to watch the world cup,” he had tweeted at the time.
