Sanju Samson is currently busy playing the three-match ODI series against West Indies for India. After not getting into the England ODI squad of India, he finally got a call for this series as star players like Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, and Virat Kohli were rested. He even got selected in the playing XI of the series opener on 22 July 2022.

But, he failed to score a big run again as he departed for 12 runs only. In that match, India was asked to bat first and they put up a score of 308 runs by losing seven wickets. Now, a former Pakistan spinner, Danish Kaneria slams Samson for wasting another chance to show his potential in the international arena.

Speaking on his Youtube channel, Kaneria said that Sanju Samson got an opportunity. But he wasted again as he looked completely dull before losing his wicket to Romario Shepherd. He even criticized the Indian Team management for sending him ahead of Deepak Hooda in the batting lineup.

Kaneria said: “Samson got another chance but he didn’t look special. He looked dull before Romario Shepherd got him out. But once again, I will talk about Hooda. Why did he bat down the order? Shreyas and Suryakumar are okay at No. 2 and 3 spots respectively, but Hooda should have come ahead of Samson. India pushed Samson up the order the same way as Rishabh Pant. But Samson ain’t Pant. His batting is completely different,”

Since his debut in 2015, he managed only 14 T20Is and two ODIs as he scored 251 runs and 58 runs respectively. Ahead of the mega events in Australia, 2022, and India, 2023, he will look to perform well in upcoming matches. Sanju Samson will look to ensure his name in the Indian squad. He is expected to get a chance again when India will take on West Indies for the second ODI match at the Queens Park Oval on 24 July 2022.
