Where Shardul Thakur got the first wicket for India, Sanju Samson had a partnership with Shreyas Iyer on a crucial occasion, on the basis of which a score of 306 runs could be scored. Samson scored 36 runs in 38 balls with the help of 4 fours. Despite this, both have had to be dropped from the team. However, here Sanju Samson must be feeling more cheated. Actually, he did not get a chance to play under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya even in the T20 series.
low scorer pant is playing
When Hardik Pandya was asked about this, he started saying that he knows when to give a chance to whom in the team. It is their team and the decision will also be theirs. In fact, the interesting thing is that Rishabh Pant, who scored 15 runs in 23 balls in the match, is playing, while Sanju Samson, who scored more runs than him, is sitting on the bench. The question is, is it so easy to get Sanju Samson out?
Zaheer said – there was no need for change
In this regard, former Indian fast bowler Zaheer Khan also said that there was no need for change here. It is disappointing when you drop a player after a single match.
