Sanju Samson. Star batsman of the Indian cricket team. But when choosing this player, there are often discrepancies. According to the other players, Samson has fewer options. At the same time, before the upcoming World Cup, every single game will mean a lot for Samson in terms of his place. Meanwhile, a veteran player has made a big statement about Samson’s World Cup ticket.
Will Samson get a spot on the World Cup team?
Former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif believes Sanju Samson is perfectly suited to batting at the middle tier and should feature in the last 15 of the ODI World Cup, to be played at home in October and November. Samson scored half a century under pressure in the crucial third ODI against the West Indies at Taroba. Samson fought for middle place with Suryakumar Yadav and held his own strongly in difficult conditions.
Samson gets chances
The absence of Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul through injury gave the likes of Samson and Suryakumar chances. Suryakumar failed to do well in the West Indies. The Indian punch has slowed down in the middle class and Kaif believes Samson can solve the problem. He said I was very impressed with Samson. He played impressive innings and hit number four or five. He has done this in the past. Kaif is not in favor of playing Ishan Kishan and Akshar Patel in the middle tier as it is not a good idea. You need a player who can spin left arms and spin legs, and Samson can do that. He played under pressure in the third ODI and is ready for the World Championship.
Eyes on Bumrah
All eyes will be on Jasprit Bumrah, who leads the team in the T20I series in Ireland. This will be his comeback streak after being out of action for almost a year due to a back injury. Kaif believes that without Bumrah, India will struggle in the knockout stages like they did at the T20 World Cup in Australia last year. He said India’s chances at the World Cup would depend on the return of injured players. Bumrah is making a comeback from a long injury and we’ll find out how fit he is. India needs a fully fit Bumrah for the World Cup.
