India Cricket: Sanju Samson drops a massive exciting hint on his India future


India have finished their 3 match ODI series against South Africa and claimed the series 2-1. The Indian cricket team and its fans will now look forward to the start of the 2022 T20 World Cup. India will be playing Pakistan in the first game of its campaign on 23rd October at the MCG. This match will be a huge one for the men in blue after their loss to their heated rivals in the last edition of the World Cup.

Sanju Samson heads back to domestic cricket –

One man who wont be seen playing for India during the 2022 T20 World cup is 27 year old Sanju Samson. The wicket keeper batter will be seen playing for Kerala in the domestic circuit. The fans weren’t pleased with the decision to ignore Samson from the 15 member list for the Indian team.

Sanju Samson drops a massive hint –

Samson played a breath taking innings of 63 ball 86 not out during the first ODI at Lucknow. India lost the game by 9 runs, but Samson won everyone’s heart with the blistering knock. The way Samson played made the fans sit up and take notice and wonder if India has found a new finisher.

Samson while speaking to the media ahead of the New Delhi ODI said "I have been practising different types of roles in the last couple of years, I have put in time to understand the types of roles in different teams. I have been given instructions to be ready and do this in the last one year. Physically I have been doing a lot of top-order batting, but mentally I am trying to understand the game and how to react according to the situation, a lot of learning has gone into this. It's important to keep the focus on the process, that has been the talk in the team meetings”

Series to remember for Samson –

Sanju Samson had the time of his life with the bat and behind the stumps during the 3 match ODI series against South Africa. The 27 year old Samson scored 118 runs without getting dismissed. Behind the stumps he was safe and on Tuesday he pouched a smart catch of Markram off Shahbaz Ahmed to send back Aiden Markram for 9.

Samson also scored 120 runs from 3 games against New Zealand A for India A in the List A games with an average of 60. Samson hit one fifty during the series where he was named the captain just before the South Africa series.
