Sanju Samson’s emotional message after missing out World cup squad
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has finally revealed the Indian team for the next T20 World Cup 2022, which will be hosted in Australia, following considerable debate. Along with four backup players, the BCCI has chosen 15 starters for the team.
Sanju Samson was seen emotional during an Instagram live after being left out of the T20 World Cup squad, He was quoted saying “When you’re not playing, you’re sitting home the whole day and you’re eating three meals a day and doing not much work it’s not really good for your body. So I try to eat two meals a day and then workout and then try to maintain my fitness I think you need to be fit throughout you never know when you going to play next.”
“I will wait for this hard time to pass out and then play when I get an opportunity, then thanks a lot for inviting me and keep supporting me giving our best for all our friends also thanks a lot guys.”
The two wicketkeeper batters chosen by India for the T20 World Cup are Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant. Karthik’s tremendous contribution to the Men in Blue over the past year as a finisher, Pant hasn’t lived up to expectations in the T20 format.
On the other hand, Pant has managed to score 311 runs at an average of 26 in the 17 T20Is he has played this year, with only one fifty to his credit. Sanju Samson, on the other hand, has impressed in every situation where he has had a chance. He has 179 runs scored in six games, with a good average of 44.75 and a strike rate of 158.
As a result, Sanju Samson should have been considered for inclusion in the T20 World Cup 2022 squad. Instead, he is not even included among the tournament’s standby players.
