Vijay Shankar continued his poor run at ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 with another low score against West Indies. Shankar, whose inclusion in the Indian CWC 2019 squad stirred controversy, was dismissed Kemar Roach after making just 14 runs from 19 deliveries that had three fours. The all-rounder was caught by wicket-keeper Shai Hope leaving India reeling at 126/3 and was soon trolled on Twitter by the Indian cricket fans who demanded his ouster for the team. They demanded that India should instead play Dinesh Karthik or Rishabh Pant in his place.  India vs West Indies Live Cricket Score of ICC World Cup 2019 Match.

Shankar was looking good during his short stay at the crease and had even engaged in a 28-run partnership with captain Virat Kohli before nicking a short length delivery from Roach to Hope behind the wickets. His dismissal left India struggling with half of their batsman back in the hut. Fans called the team management to include either Karthik, Pant or Ravindra Jadeja in India’s next game against England and leave Shankar out. Rohit Sharma Dismissal: Fans Troll Third Umpire Michael Gough After the Indian Opener Was Controversially Given Out Using DRS During IND vs WI CWC 2019 Match.

This is Shankar's third game in the 2019 Cricket World Cup. He, so far, has scores of 15*, 29 and 14 against Pakistan, Afghanistan and West Indies respectively. Although poor with the bat, the 28-year-old took two wickets against Pakistan. He did not bowl against AFGHANISTAN.

Meanwhile, Indian skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat first. India made no changes to their playing XI and fielded the same team that played in the 11-run victory over Afghanistan.
