Twitter Trolled Vijay Shankar Taking References Of Rayudu After He Lost It All In RCB vs SRH

Vijay Shankar

In a contrasting tale told by the performance of two cricketers who fought desperately last year to clinch a national team spot for the 2019 World Cup, Ambati Rayudu came out in flying colours while Vijay Shankar went down in flames.

While Rayudu crafted a match-defining 71, ushering Chennai to a crucial victory in their IPL opener, Vijay Shankar took a hammering with the ball in the hand, before wringing out the prized scalp of Devdutt Paddikal. As he came out to bat, Yuzvendra Chahal sent him back for a golden duck with an impeccable delivery that flew through his defences, rattling the timber.

After Rayudu was left out for the previous World Cup, and Shankar was taken in for the number four spot, Rayudu sparked a severe controversy, tweeting, “Just Ordered a new set of 3d glasses to watch the world cup ??..”

It had its repercussions, India were eliminated in the semi-finals by New Zealand and peace was settled. Unfortunately, it seemed that Twitter did not forget the ugly past. As Shankar failed to deliver in his team’s opener, Twitteratti tore him open with humiliating tweets. Here are the top ten tweets that embarassed Shankar ober a forgetful night.

The first tweet had sarcasm dripping from it as it read, “A great decesion was taken by selectors for the world cup
Taking vijay shankar ahead of Ambati Rayudu ??? great innings played by shankar with both the bat and ball what a match winner he really is for the opponents
Just like our Umesh yadav”

Another post read, “Because SRH got World class allrounder like vijay shankar and CSK got poor player ambati rayudu”.

The third tweet read, “BCCI you see today’s IPL match again and again.. that is AMBATI RAYUDU… Saalaa MS PRASAD. Uu see 100 times of AMBATI Batting.. if ambati plays in world cup instead of VIJAY SHANKAR (3 dimensions player) india will surely lift the world cup…”

The venom simply didn’t stop. It kept on coming as a tweet read, “#AmbatiRayudu deserved place in Indian team. He is much much better player than so-called 3-dimensional player Vijay Shankar.
Not even single match he won for any team till now. Definitely he had & has some influence in #TeamIndia and #SRH

#ipl2020 #Dream11IPL”

Someone still had a few bones to pick with the selectors as another tweet read, “He felt that vijay shankar was a better than Ambati Rayudu. But he (Ambati Rayudu) is presenting himself in every stage and he was seen by everyone, not only seeing by MSK PRASAD…. the only reason behind world cup loss is.. MSK PRASAD.
@BCCI”

Another post on the micro-blogging website read, “Ambati Rayudu be having the time of his laugh watching vijay shankar bowl and reliving his batting day before yesterday
#RCBVsSRH
#IPL2020”

A lot of pent-up anger was coming out as a tweet read, “Ambati Rayudu deserved to be in ICC World Cup 2019 team but at that time as per Kohli and Shastri, Vijay Shankar was a better player at no. 4. What a Joke. #CSKvMI”

The tweets were funny as another quoted, “yes..
and ambati rayudu > vijay shankar !
#worldcup :(”

Another post quoted, “BCCI you see today’s IPL match again and again.. that is AMBATI RAYUDU… Saalaa MS PRASAD. Uu see 100 times of AMBATI Batting.. if ambati plays in world cup instead of VIJAY SHANKAR (3 dimensions player) india will surely lift the world cup…”

The final one quoted, “Ambati Rayudu is a 3-D cricketer and not Vijay Shankar. Is MSK Prasad on twitter? #MIvCSK #MIvsCSK #WorldCup2019”
