Should have got place instead of Rahul or Pant
Many people debated on social media in support of Sanju Samson on social media. People believed that Sanju should have got a chance in the team instead of Rishabh Pant or KL Rahul. This however was not the first time. There has been a demand to include Sanju Samson in the playing 11. Samson has also not been included in the list of India’s 4 reserve players for the T20 World Cup.
If we look at the recent form of KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant, then both have not been seen doing anything special. Runs are not coming out of both the bats as before. Recently Sanju has given his reaction regarding all these things.
Samson does not want to let the team down
A video is going viral on social media in which Sanju Samson is seen replying to discussions about his own selection instead of KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant. In the video, he has said many things, referring to his return to the team after five years.
Sanju said in a viral video on social media,
“I am very fortunate that I was able to return to the Indian team after five years. At that time, India was the best cricket team in the world, and even today India is the number one team. There is a lot of quality in the team and it is very difficult to find a place in the number one team. But at the same time, you also have to think about yourself and it is important to be in the right frame of mind. Think positive.”
Regarding Pant and Rahul, Sanju Samson said,
“These days there is a lot of discussion in the media and on social media that Sanju Samson should replace KL Rahul. Sanju should replace Rishabh Pant. My thinking is very clear. Both KL and Pant play for their team. I will compete with my teammates, so then I am bringing my country down.”
Sanju Samson has been named as the captain of the India A team for the three-match ODI series against New Zealand A. The first match of the series will be played on 22 September, the second match on 25 September, while the third ODI will be played on 27 September.
