Sanju Samson Fall Capture: Sanju Samson was once again given a chance in Team India’s T20 squad. In the absence of Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul, it was believed that Ishan Kishan would step in as wicketkeeper, but Sanju Samson would also have a chance, looking safe too. Captain Hardik Pandya also included him in his playing XI. However, another matter is that Sanju Samson failed to act in the way that was expected. Sanju Samson couldn’t do wonders at bat, but he also dropped a catch as he fielded. The ball had also reached Sanju Samson’s hands, but when he fell to the ground, the ball came out. After dropping the catch, Sanju Samson looked at Captain Hardik Pandya with a smile, the captain’s reaction to this was touching. You can also watch that video below.

Sanju Samson missed a catch, didn’t even hit

When the India team came out to bat against Sri Lanka, captain Hardik Pandya sent Sanju Samson to bat at number four before him. Sanju Samson had a chance to make the most of this opportunity and score runs, but Sanju Samson could only score five runs off six balls and returned to the pavilion after being sent off. After this, when the Sri Lankan team came out to bat, Sanju Samson was seen fielding. He brought the first on himself. Captain Hardik Pandya took the leading edge of Pathum Nissanka’s bat on the second ball of the over and the ball went straight up the middle, where Sanju Samson was fielding. Sanju dove to his right and grabbed the ball, but as soon as he hit the ground, the ball went out. The entire India team expected this catch to be caught and the first wicket to be taken, but it did not happen. Sanju then looked at the captain, to which Pandya also responded with a smile. The video of him has gone viral on social media with people fiercely praising Captain Hardik Pandya for his reaction. People on social media say that Pandya easily controlled his emotions and didn’t give any reaction that would hurt Sanju Samson or the rest of the players.

Sanju Samson took two catches after dropping the first catch

The good thing is that Sanju Samson dropping this catch didn’t hurt the Indian team much, because in the next over, Shivam Mavi came and dismissed Nissanka. Nissanka could only score one run on three balls. However, Sanju Samson took two more catches as he corrected the first mistake. He first caught Dhananjay D’Silva in front of Shivam Mavi and then he caught Kusal Mendis in front of Harshal Patel and made him walk. Sanju Samson’s bat may not have worked in this first game, but there is a good chance that captain Hardik Pandya will give him a chance to play in the second game as well, so he can show what kind of hitter he is. This series is a great opportunity for Sanju Samson to prove himself, let’s see how Sanju performs in the upcoming matches.
