Sanju Samson wasted the chance to leave a lasting impression with the bat when he was removed for a 6-ball 5 against Sri Lanka in the first T20I.
Sanju Samson, one of the most well-liked players in Indian cricket, has another chance to build a claim for a regular berth in the T20I team. Samson, however, squandered the chance and was bowled out by Dhananjaya de Silva for just 5 runs off of 6 balls. Sunil Gavaskar, a legendary cricketer from India, yelled on-air in frustration after witnessing Samson leave for little money yet again, lamenting the fact that this was not the first time the wicket-keeper batsman had lost his wicket.
Samson is without a doubt one of the Indian cricket team’s top potential players, particularly in T20 cricket. However, due to stiff competition for slots on the team, he has received little playing time. Samson hasn’t always lived up to expectations, but he has occasionally earned the nods. It was a similar situation to the one with Sri Lanka.
“The leading edge is going to short third guy this time. He plays the game so well. Sanju Samson has a tonne of potential, but occasionally his shot selection falls short. And here is yet another time that it has let me down “Sunil Gavaskar, a former cricketer for India, made the statement while commentating on the first T20I at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium.
Even former India starting quarterback Gautam Gambhir later in the game advised Samson to start seizing his opportunities.
He added on the Byju’s Cricket Live Show, “We all talk about how much skill he has, but he needs to take use of these opportunities.
