India has to play 3-3 ODI and T20 series against Sri Lanka in January.
After Sri Lanka, India will play 3-3 ODI and T20 series against New Zealand.
new Delhi. Sanju Samson is probably one of the most talented batsmen of India, but he has not got a chance to play according to his potential. He made his debut for India in 2015, but till now he has played only 11 ODIs and 16 T20 Internationals for India. Whenever it comes to team selection, from cricket veterans to common veterans, they support Sanju Samson on social media. Despite this, Sanju is repeatedly ignored. Now in January-February, India has to play ODI and T20 series against Sri Lanka and New Zealand. In such a situation, the election of the team is to be held tomorrow i.e. Tuesday, December 27. In such a situation, once again the demand to include Sanju Samson in the team has started on social media.
Sanju Samson took Rajasthan Royals till the final of IPL 2022. However, the team lost to Gujarat Titans. But Samson was praised for taking Rajasthan Royals to the finals. After this, Sanju was selected in the Indian team for the two-match T20 International series against Ireland, but he did not play a single match here. After this, when senior players like Rishabh Pant, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma returned to England in the team, they were sent home. After this it was expected that he would be given a place in the T20 World Cup team, but he did not get a chance.
In the ICC T20 World Cup 2022, the Indian team had to face defeat in the semi-finals, but things did not change for Sanju. Now even though India has started preparing again for the 2024 T20 World Cup, he remained on the bench even after being selected in the team. He was not included in the playing eleven in the 3-match T20 series against New Zealand. He got to play only one match in the ODI series. Despite this, there has been no decrease in Sanju’s fan following. His fans are still demanding to include Sanju in the team.
Former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer has also tweeted in support of this Kerala player that he should be selected for white ball games against Sri Lanka and New Zealand. His statement came a day before the team selection. The three-match series against Sri Lanka will begin on January 3 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Jaffer has tweeted supporting Sanju Samson, “I hope that Sanju Samson will be a part of the Indian team for both T20 International and ODI series against Sri Lanka and New Zealand. And he will get a chance for a long time.
Let us tell you that it was claimed in many media reports that the old selection committee headed by Chetan Sharma will choose a T20 team, which will be led by Hardik Pandya. The entire committee headed by Chetan Sharma was sacked for poor performance after the Indian team was eliminated in the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup. The process of finding new selectors has taken a little longer than expected. In such a situation, the same old committee will choose the team.
