Dream Is To Win World Cup For My Country: Sanju Samson
All eyes will be on Sanju Samson when India take on Bangladesh in the forthcoming T20I series. The highly-rated batsman has finally got a second chance to prove himself at the international stage. Sanju Samson is no stranger to playing for India. He had earned his maiden India call-up way back in 2014 when he was just 18.
The stylish batsman was included in the squad for the England tour but he could not make his debut. In the following year, he made his debut against Zimbabwe but was dropped after that tour which started the long wait for another call-up from the national team. With skipper Virat Kohli rested for the series, Sanju Samson is set to be a part of the playing eleven for the series.
Sanju Samson is also in good form at the moment. A couple of months ago, he had impressed for India A against South Africa A. Recently, he also scored a List A double century in Vijay Hazare Trophy. Only time will tell how the Kerala star’s international career turns out. But as far as the batsman himself is concerned, he has some big plans for the future. The right-handed batsman has said he wants to win the World Cup with India.
“The dream is to play and win the World Cup for my country. I don’t know in which year it will happen. But that is my dream,” Sanju Samson said in an interview with the Times of India.Sanju Samson (Credits – Twitter)
On being asked about how he has changed as a player between 2015 and now, Sanju said that he has developed a better understanding of his own game now.
“I understand my game better now. I can gauge what the opposition is thinking during a game. It has come through the experience of playing a lot of games. Obviously, I am much more relaxed now when I step out onto the field. I have grown as a cricketer as well as an individual now,” added the batsman who led India in the 2014 U19 World Cup.
