India all-rounder Vijay Shankar on Monday was ruled out of the 2019 World Cup with a toe injury. Vijay was struck on his toe by a Jasprit Bumrah yorker, which resulted in a fracture to his left toe, rendering him unavailable for the rest of the tournament.
Last week, Vijay had shrugged off a toe injury after being hit by Bumrah during the nets, to make his World Cup debut against Afghanistan. He also played against the West Indies.
Vijay’s World Cup participation, too, had come under a cloud after he was hit on his forearm by a Khaleel Ahmed bouncer in the lead up to the warm-up games. He, however, had recovered.
