Indian all-rounder Vijay Sharma has found himself at the receiving end of trolling after his recent statements didn’t go down too well with the fans. Well, recently, Vijay claimed that he could be like the legendary all-rounders Jacques Kallis or Shane Watson, if given a chance, following which he was brutally trolled by the cricket fans.
Well, over the past few days, the 30-year-old Indian all-rounder has given many interviews to several publications, which have brought him into the limelight.
Recently, in an interview with News18, Vijay Shankar talked about his batting skills and while doing so he claimed that he could be like Jacques Kallis or Shane Watson, if given a chance to bat up in the order. He said:
“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?”
However, his comparisons with Jacques Kallis and Shane Watson didn’t go down well with the cricket fans, who are now trolling Vijay Shankar left, right and center for his statement. Twitterati came up with hilarious memes and jokes while trolling the all-rounder. Soon he was trending on Twitter alongwith South African great Jacques Kallis.
Several fans pointed out that the Indian all-rounder shouldn’t compare himself to great all-rounders like Jacques Kallis and Shane Watson.
Here, check out the reactions of twitterati on this:
So 3D player of India is again trending just because he compared himself with Kallis and Watson. Dear Vijay Shankar according to me it’s very hard for you to get back in to this Indian side.
Plus don’t compare yourself with anyone because performances speak & not the performers

Kallis and Vijay Shankar in the same Twitter trend is a perfect indicator of what's wrong with our world.

The problem with Vijay Shankar is he speaks more with his mouth rather than his bat
