Sanju Samson: The Indian cricket team has been selected for the T20 World to be held in Australia from 16 October to 13 November 2022. Since the team selection, there is a deadlock everywhere about why Sanju Samson was not selected in the team after all? Many people questioned the recent form of Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul and also talked about giving Sanju a chance in their place. At the same time, after getting the captaincy of the India-A team on Friday, 16 September, Sanju Samson’s reaction on all these things has come to the fore.
In fact, a video is going viral on social media in which Sanju Samson is seen answering the discussions about his own selection instead of KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant. Although this video belongs to whom Sanju spoke to whom it is not clear. But from what Sanju is saying in this video, it is clear that this video is only after the selection of the team. In the video, he said many things while also mentioning his return to the team after five years.
What did Sanju Samson say?
Sanju Samson was the first to say in this video, “I am very lucky that after five years I got a chance to return to the Indian cricket team. It is never easy to be in the best team in the world. I consider myself very lucky. Also, I always keep a positive attitude. Samson has not found a place in India’s T20 squad but he is almost certain to play for the upcoming ODI series against South Africa. He will captain the Indian team in India-A and New Zealand-A series.
In the video, Sanju further said on choosing himself in place of KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant, “There is a lot going on on social media, many things are being said that Sanju Samson should be selected in place of KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant. But my thinking in this matter is very clear, both KL and Pant are playing for our own team. If I start rivalry with my own teammates then it will bring my country down. So I always think positive. I keep.”
Significantly, for the T20 World Cup 2022, India’s 15-member main team and four reserve players were selected. Sanju Samson was not found in this team. Also, Sanju was not selected for the upcoming Australia and South Africa series. After this, there was a lot of ruckus on social media. After this came the statement of the BCCI official which said that there was no talk of Sanju in the World Cup team selection and Pant can change the match anytime. Also, to maintain consistency, Sanju Samson will play in the upcoming ODI series.
