In the first ODI against Sri Lanka, Samson dived in an attempt to take a catch in the first over. Although he received the ball, he could not take it carefully. Even though his knee was hit at that time, he fielded. But later the knee got swollen and had to consult the medical staff.
Lankan opener Pathun was going to play a carefree shot off the bowling of Hardik Pandya. But as the ball took an edge, Samson, who was fielding at mid-off, got injured while trying to take the catch. The incident took place in the second ball of the first over of Sri Lanka’s innings.
Due to injury, Samson’s performance in the second match has become doubtful. The management will come to a decision about playing him only after the medical team examines the scanning reports. As Sanju is staying in Mumbai, chances are high that he will miss the Pune match. But Pune can be reached within 3 hours from Mumbai. With this, the chances of him playing cannot be completely ruled out.
If Samson misses the second T20, he will be really unlucky. Because.. Sanju has been waiting for opportunities for a long time. Management did not consider Samson for Asia Cup and T20 World Cup. He got a chance to play only one ODI in the series against New Zealand.
Even though Rishabh Pant is performing poorly, Samson’s fans questioned why Sanju left Sanju and gave more chances to him. Ravi Shastri, the former coach of Team India suggested that Sanju should be given a chance in ten consecutive matches. BCCI is discriminating against the young cricketer. Some have suggested that he should announce his retirement and play in the leagues.
In this context, Samson was selected for the T20 series against Sri Lanka. Samson failed to impress despite getting a chance to play in the first T20. Samson (5 runs from 6 balls) who came to the crease when the Indian team lost 2 wickets for 38 runs was disappointing. Now that he will miss the second T20 due to injury, his fans are worried.
If Sanju Samson misses the second match, there is a possibility that all-rounder Washington Sundar or Rahul Tripathi will play in his place. Tripathi, who is in good form, has been waiting for a place in the team for some time now.
