Sanju Samson says “Wrong to think about Indian selection when you’re playing for an IPL team” in the Indian Premier League. Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson has stated that thinking about India selection. While playing the Indian Premier League is a wrong mindset. Sanju Samson has failed to replicate his success in the Indian Premier League. At the international stage despite being given a number of opportunities. After that, the result was failed to find a place in India’s 15-member squad for the T20 World Cup.
As for Samson, there is no point in thinking about national selection. Also, a player in the Indian Premier League.
“First of all, when you’re playing for an IPL team and thinking about Indian selection, then it’s a wrong mindset. People do talk a lot about Indian selection and cementing your place but that is actually a by-product – if you perform, you get opportunities,” Sanju Samson said.
The Rajasthan Royals captain made the comments during an interaction. It is over the captaincy and other cricketing issues. Also, with Barbados Royals captain Jason Holder. Sanju Samson had a philosophical take on the criticism surrounding him. He stated that the pressure of performance is the same for him and for everyone.
“I think IPL is the most viewed tournament in the world. It will get you noticed. People do say good things about me and they also say other things as well. It’s natural for me now. Everyone is having that kind of pressure. And every one goes through that kind of pressure, knowing that so many people are waiting outside anyway. That’s the reason behind Indian cricket’s success,” he added.
