Shankar – who made his debut for India in 2018 in T20Is – was a part of the World Cup squad in 2019. Of late, he has not been a regular part of the national side. Unfortunately, Shankar did not get picked for the recently-concluded Australian tour. He would be expected to play a big role in the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League. It is unsure where will the 14th season take place as of now.
The BCCI has said that India would be the first priority for hosting IPL. It has also stated that for that to happen, it needs the clearance of the government of India.
Meanwhile, the Indian team will take on England in a full-fledged series starting with the first Test in Chennai on February 5.
