Summary

Vijay Shankar speaks about being 'neutral' regardless of highs and lows, his decisive final over and more (5:01)On the eve of the second ODI against Australia in Nagpur, Vijay Shankar was eyeing Virat Kohli's bat like a kid would do a box of candies. #INDvAUSEver since the night of the Nidahas final, Vijay has been "literally waiting" to look pressure in the eye and say: you're next like WWE's Bill Goldberg does. On Monday night, with 10 to defend off the last over against, he speared Stoinis and Adam Zampa in three balls to deliver India a tense victory.Bruce Banner couldn't quite transform into the Hulk, but the nervy Vijay transformed into a nerveless player.He hit a hard length with the first ball of the last over - neither short enough to pull or full enough to hoist it over mid-on - and had Stoinis swishing and missing. Vijay's plays and misses in the Nidahas Trophy are now history.Sure, he has his limitations as a bowler - he can't get his speeds past the lower 130kph range - but his form with the bat has contributed to a spike in his bowling.
