Sanju Samson again gave an appropriate response to the selectors, playing the captain’s armband and hitting fifty
The cricket season in India is currently at its peak. In addition to the domestic tournament, two foreign teams also visited India. Starting tomorrow, a T20 series of three matches will be played against South Africa. New Zealand A and India A also do two hands each. In this third unofficial ODI to be played in Chennai, Sanju Samson has played the captain’s armband. Scoring 54 runs forced the selectors to rethink whether it was a mistake not to pick him in the T20 World Cup.
Known for his devastating percussion, Sanju Samson changed his gear because he understood the necessity of time. Sanju Samson scored 54 runs in 68 balls. India had lost both of their openers within four runs. In the 12th over, the team’s score was two wickets for 65 runs. In such a situation, coming in at number three, he took over the team and formed a solid partnership with Tilak Verma. In these innings, Sanju hit one four and only two sixes. With a strike rate of 79.41, he focused more on single-doubles.
In addition to Sanju Samson, Tilak Verma and Shardul Thakur also received fifty with the bat. In this way, batting first, the Indian squad set a goal of 285 runs for New Zealand A. As of the time of writing, New Zealand A has lost their four wickets for 111 runs in 26 overs. Amid all this, when India’s senior team reached Thiruvananthapuram to play the first match of the T20 series against South Africa, the fans raised slogans in support of Sanju Samson. At the sight of the Indian players, the public began to raise the slogans of Sanju-Sanju.
