Gautam Gambhir Backs Sanju Samson To Get National Opportunity
Former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir has put his weight behind Sanju Samson to get a national call-up after the right-hander scored a fine double hundred in the ongoing Vijay Hazare trophy. The flamboyant batsman was on song in the fixture against Goa and became the 6th Indian player to score a double century in List A career.
The stylish batsman played at the top of his game to bring up his maiden List A century. The right-hander scored 20 fours and ten sixes in his sublime knock of 212 runs. There are a lot of expectations from Sanju Samson however his domestic record hasn’t been impressive. The Kerala batsman has a paltry average of 27 in List A career and needs to turn the tables.
Samson has the skills to make it big.
Meanwhile, Gautam Gambhir had also recently backed Sanju Samson to end India’s number four conundrum. Samson has all the talent in the world and he definitely can deliver the goods if he is more consistent at the domestic level.
The stylish batsman showed no mercy for the Goa bowlers and he was able to hit the ground running. Samson completed his double century in just 125 balls with a massive six.
Sanju Samson will like to continue his good form going in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy. The right-hander has all the skills and he would like to get a national call-up by performing consistently at the domestic circuit.
Meanwhile, Sanju Samson has also come up with some sublime knocks in the Indian Premier League for Rajasthan Royals. The right-hander had also scored a fine knock of 91 runs off 48 balls against South Africa A recently.
