Can’t believe he’s not in Indian side: Shane Warne about Sanju Samson
Even as Mumbai Indians defeated RCB Sanju Samson has been accumulating a lot of plaudits for his swashbuckling batting in the 13th season of the Indian Premier League. The 26-year-old is in splendid form and has scored runs in just 2 matches. It is just not that he has scored runs but the way he has dominated the bowlers is something that has mesmerized the cricket world.
Former Australia spinner and Rajasthan Royals brand ambassador Shane Warne was in awe of Samson’s batting after the CSK match and commented that he was surprised that the batsman is not playing cricket for India in all formats.
“I can’t believe he’s (Sanju Samson) not in the Indian side in all three formats, he’s such a great player, I’m really looking forward to watching him in the IPL. Your best players should face most balls. If you look at our side Buttler, Smith, and Samson are our best batsmen,” Warne said on Star Sports.
Samson’s inclusion in the Indian side has been talked about a lot in the past and fans have clamoured for him to be included in the team. But Samson has to date only managed 4 matches for Team India even though he debuted for the national side in 2015. But if Samson continues to perform in the same way throughout the season then it wouldn’t be easy for the selectors to ignore him for upcoming matches.
