How Shashank dealt with IND vs ZIM snub?

On the back of his superb display, many including Shashank hopes to get a chance to don the Indian jersey. Everything was going right, but when he heard that he wasn’t selected for the India vs Zimbabwe series his heart sank in. Well, that’s what everyone would think so, instead, Shashank say he wasn’t disappointed one bit. Why? Well he told us in a exclusive conversation.

“Not at all disappointed. I’ve stopped expecting things from myself or anyone else. But it helped me know how much harder I have to work in the future to get there. My bowling, fielding, and fitness are a few things I have to work on. I get a reality check as well when these squads get announced—that I have to work so much if I have to compete with the best. When you see the squad, all the players deserve their place thoroughly. Players like Nitish (Reddy) and Riyan (Parag) have done exceedingly well in the domestic circuit and the IPL. I know that I’m somewhere near, but it’ll take some time for me to get noticed. In a good way, I’ll work even harder and make sure that I get recognized more during the selection meeting” said to InsideSport.
