India allrounder Vijay Shankar may be away from international duties, after getting injured during the World Cup this year. But the cricketer has continued to work on his fitness during his time off. On Wednesday, Shankar posted an image of his body transformation, in which he posed shirtless. In the post Shankar wrote: “The sweat, the time, the devotion. It pays off!” But the post did not go down well with some of the fans on Twitter.
While some fans questioned that despite fitness he is still away from the team, some were quick to troll him for his average performance in the World Cup.
Here is how a section of twitterati reacted:
