Sanju Samson

Team India captain Hardik Pandya (for IND vs NZ T20 series) has come under target of his fans for not giving place to Sanju Samson in the playing XI in the second and third T20 match against New Zealand.

India registered a resounding win in the 2nd T20I against New Zealand and Suryakumar Yadav once again proved why is the no.1 T20 batsman. But the third match was declared draw after rain interruption. But Indian cricket fans could not keep their calm as the team management, Coach VVS Lakshman and skipper Hardik Pandya gave Rishabh Pant another chance despite the disappointment but could not include Sanju Samson in the playing XI.

After the failure in the T20 World Cup, under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya, the Indian team was playing T20 series against New Zealand. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has given rest to senior players like Captain Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul and Dinesh Karthik.

Despite the victory in the second T20 against New Zealand, captain Hardik Pandya and team coach VVS Laxman were on target and the reason was neglecting Sanju Samson for the entire T20 series.

Pant flopped again in the second and third match, but despite the first disapointment, Rishabh Pant was given a chance as wicketkeeper, who started the innings with Ishaan Kishan. But Sanju Samson who is available and a part of the IND vs NZ squad did not get to play in any of the matches.

Former Indian cricket team coach Ravi Shastri has also talked about giving a chance to Sanju Samson. Ravi Shastri said, “Give Sanju Samson a chance. Give him 10 matches. It is not that you let him play two matches and then make him sit, make other people sit. Give Sanju Samson 10 matches and then see what he does next.”

For the unversed, Sanju Samson was also not kept in the team of Asia Cup 2022 and T20 World Cup 2022. India tried Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant in some matches of T20 World, but their performance was not up to the mark.

On the other hand, Sanju Samson had a great performance in IPL this year. He had scored 458 runs and his strike rate was also 146.79. Samson has so far played 16 T20 international matches for India. He last played against West Indies in August 2022, and since then has been waiting for his turn.

Following Sunday’s IPL 2024 encounter between Mumbai and Chennai at the iconic Wankhede Stadium, fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah was delighted to meet MS Dhoni. Bumrah, who recently defeated RCB by taking five wickets, expressed his happiness by uploading a photo of himself with the former CSK skipper.

Shortly after the match, Bumrah entered the CSK dressing room and engaged in conversation with the great Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Since then, the video, which IPL posted on X, has been making the rounds on the Internet.

Sharing the image, Bumrah wrote, met Mahi bhai after so long, felt good to catch up. In the image the two were seen wearing their team’s jerseys while posing for camera.

Soon after Bumrah shared the image, it quickly went viral. A user said, love for the mini-reunion. A second user said two legends in one frame. A third user said want to see playing together. Others also dropped hearts and fire emojis in the comments section.

After hitting 3 sixes and an undefeated 20 off only 4 balls against MI, Dhoni made headlines. The 42-year-old took Hardik Pandya to task after coming out to bat in the final over of CSK’s innings, smacking the bowler for three straight sixes.

In response to Dhoni’s blow, Chennai scored an incredible 206 for 4. Then, after Matheesha Pathirana claimed four wickets, CSK restricted MI to 186 for 6.

Dhoni is without a doubt one of the greatest cricket players of all time, and this is evident in the manner that both current and previous players describe him.

The bowling coach for CSK Eric Simons praised Dhoni after the game for his ability to get off to a fast start.

It was remarkable that he was able to hit the first ball so hard for six and keep going. Throughout the preseason and into the tournament, he has been hitting incredibly effectively in the nets. Simons described it as just another amazing MS Dhoni moment, he said.

Meanwhile, Dhoni became the first Indian player to knock three consecutive sixes in the opening three balls of an IPL innings in addition to reaching 5000 runs for CSK.
