RIshabh Pant instructs Samson in Malayalam language


West Indies and India were taking over the T20 International and completed the series by 4-1. In the 5th T20, on Sunday, the game was played at Central Broward Regional Park in Lauderhill, Florida.

On the third T20 International, the West Indies captain Nicholas Poran went to win a toss and invited India to bat. The men in blue showed off their skills brilliantly and made 191 runs of five wickets.

In the fourth T20, something strange happened when Rishabh Pant was seen instructing Sanju Samon in the Malayalam language. The wicket-keeper said Easy Chetta to Sanju Samon which actually means Easy Brother in english language. It seems like Sanju Samon has taught malayalam words to the whole team.

Sanju Samon has not been given enough chances, and due to this he has become a fan favorite. He has been giving above-par performances in IPL and domestic cricket tournaments. But the cricket experts believe that Rishabh Pant has diminished the chances of Sanju Samson to play in the International leagues, as they both are wicket-keeper batsmen.

In the IPL, both the players had an ordinary season. Rishabh pant scored 340 runs in 13 innings with a strike rate of 151.78. The player has not even scored a single 50+. On the other hand, Sanju Samson scored around 458 runs in 17 innings with a strike rate of 146.79. 

With the coming Asia Cup and T20-World Cup, it was exciting to see whether Sanju will be able to make it or not. In the fifth T20I, Sanju missed the chance of showing his brutal skills and on the other hand, Deepak Hooda slammed quick-firing innings.
