Sanju Samson again gave a befitting reply to the selectors, playing the captaincy innings, hit fifty

New Delhi: Cricket season in India is at its peak right now. Along with the domestic tournament, two foreign teams have also visited India. A three match T20 series will be played against South Africa from tomorrow. New Zealand A and India A are also doing two hands each. In this third unofficial ODI being played in Chennai, Sanju Samson has played the captaincy innings. Scoring 54 runs forced the selectors to think again whether it was a mistake to not pick him in the T20 World Cup.

Known for his destructive batting, Sanju Samson changed his gear understanding the exigencies of time. Sanju Samson scored 54 runs in 68 balls. India had lost both their openers within four runs. In the 12th over, the team’s score was two wickets for 65 runs. In such a situation, coming at number three, he took over the team and formed a solid partnership with Tilak Verma. In this innings, Sanju hit one four and only two sixes. With a strike rate of 79.41, he focused more on single-doubles.

Apart from Sanju Samson, Tilak Verma and Shardul Thakur also got fifty with the bat. In this way, batting first, the Indian team set a target of 285 runs in front of New Zealand A. Till the time of writing the news, New Zealand A have lost their four wickets for 111 runs in 26 overs. In the midst of all this, when India’s senior team reached Thiruvananthapuram to play the first match of the T20 series against South Africa, the fans raised slogans in support of Sanju Samson. Seeing the Indian players, the crowd started raising slogans of Sanju-Sanju.
