Shankar picked two wickets to bag the Match of the Match award as India defeated Bangladesh by six wickets in the second T20 international in the tri-series.

He answered about his comparison with Hardhik -

"For me, what is more, important is to get better and better every day. Because the pressure or comparing me with Hardik because he is also an all-rounder, I think most cricketers don't like comparison but it is important for us to show what we have and give our best instead of putting ourselves under pressure," he said.

Vijay Shankar could have two more wickets in his account because  Suresh Raina dropped a catch at mid-off and Washington Sundar also missed an attempt in the bowler's first over.

Viijay Shankar talked about role of team management :

"I think the team management plays a huge part, they give us the freedom to express ourself which is very important at this stage," he said.

"The pressure will always be there, if we enjoy the pressure then we will be able to do well but if we put ourselves under pressure then we can get into trouble."

India will play their 3rd match of NIDAHAS TROPHY against Sri Lanka on March 12.
