India slumped to series defeat at the hands of Australia at home. Former India international cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar has slammed Vijay Shankar for wasting another opportunity. He took to Twitter to blast Shankar for his irresponsible approach and even criticized Rishabh Pant for his mediocre display.

“Really disappointing with Pant and Shankar today, what a great chance to show their ability. Shankar may have the big shots but he is no Pant, must learn to keep the strike rate up by hitting more along the ground just like his captain does”, Manjrekar tweeted.

He praised the Aussies for putting up a clinical performance after losing the first two ODIs.

“Delighted for Australia! Exceptional series win! Their country must be so proud, this is what they wanted, a winning team that’s also a very likeable team.”

He further added that the middle order woes could impact Team India’s World Cup chances.
