India and Tamil Nadu cricketers Dinesh Karthik and Vijay Shankar tried their hand at a game of ‘Perfect Pairs’ hosted in a video posted by the International Cricket Council (ICC). The more experienced of the two — Karthik — emerged as the winner in the contest, answering four of the five questions correctly.
The only question that Karthik got wrong was Vijay's biggest fear. The wicketkeeper-batsman answer was ‘fear of flying’ while Shankar’s answer was that he doesn’t fear anything.
Vijay's selection to the Indian squad was in the news with Ambati Rayudu’s tweet commenting about getting ‘3D’ glasses in response to chief selector MSK Prasad’s comment on the all-rounder’s three-dimensional role.
