Vijay Shankar feels that a fresh approach has resulted in his improved showing of late.

Having played some useful knocks, including the 24-ball unbeaten 51 to take Gujarat Titans to victory over Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens in the Indian Premier League (IPL) here on Saturday, all-rounder Vijay said the work he put in reflected in his game.

“I was out for five-six months due to injury. I did pretty well in the Ranji Trophy. I changed a lot of things. Not just diet, I also worked a lot on the mental aspect of my game. With all that, the (GT) management also helped me here. It’s coming out good for me,” said Vijay.

Crediting the GT management for the team’s good showing, Vijay said different players raised their game and performed for the side in different matches.
