Indian all-rounder, Vijay Shankar drew widespread praise after he scored 46 runs off 41 deliveries in the second ODI against Australia at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, Nagpur. On a slow wicket, Shankar batted fluently and played shots that oozed class and elegance.

Shankar got a promotion and came to bat at no.5 for India. He hit five fours and a six in his 41-ball stay at the crease. His straight drives and pull shots served as eye candy for the fans.

Shankar has thrown his hat and is in the race to go to England and Wales for the Cricket World Cup that commences from May 30. He was unlucky to get run-out today but impressed one and all.

Take a look at how Twitter reacted to his dismissal:
