Sunil Gavaskar Highlights Reasons for Sanju Samson’s Inconsistency. Sanju Samson named to India’s squad for the two-match Twenty20 International series against Ireland, which begins on June 26.
Sanju Samson has been given another chance to cement his place in the Indian cricket team. He is a member of Hardik Pandya’s India squad, which will play two Twenty20 Internationals against Ireland later this month. With wicketkeeper-batters like Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan, and veteran Dinesh Karthik performing well with far more consistency than the 27-year-old, Samson’s path to the T20 World Cup squad will be difficult. Samson has repeatedly impressed with his abilities, only to fall short with consistency.
Samson has appeared in one ODI and thirteen T20Is for India, scoring 46 and 174 runs, respectively. Former Indian cricket captain Sunil Gavaskar believes Samson has talent but believes he needs to improve his shot selection.
Sunil Gavaskar ON Sanju Samson’s Inconsistency
“Everyone deserves a second chance, but you have to make the most of it. ” What has brought Sanju Samson down, despite his tremendous talent, is his shot selection while playing for India. Sunil Gavaskar said during the fifth T20I between India and South Africa on Sunday, which was called off due to rain.
“So, yes, if his shot selection improves, he will be much more consistent. Whether for India or his franchise.” Then no one will be asking him about his position on the team.”
Team IND will play two T20Is on June 26th and 28th in Dublin.
