New Delhi: Sanju Samson Despite boasting a good record in ODIs, India is not in the selectors’ scheme and it remains to be seen whether the wicketkeeper-batsman will be able to retain his place in the team for future series.

He also said that scoring a century puts pressure on the selectors to include you in the team.
“We all know how much talent he has. Not just us, everyone has talked about the innings he has played in the IPL. But that innings today. Through, somewhere he started his international career. Before that he always got sporadic opportunities – sometimes he got a game, sometimes he was left out. But when you score 100, you not only Impress the selectors but also put pressure on them to pick you,” Gambhir said on Star Sports.

“But we have to see if India can stick with him after this century as the next World Cup is four years away. Still, the quality player that Samson is, I think he should stay. “You have a great option in the middle order. India will always have a strong and heavy top order but Samson will always give you that option in the middle. With this knock, Samson has restarted his career.” They said.
Gambhir also praised Samson for the way he approached his innings and how he adjusted his pace according to the conditions. He described Samson’s innings as an example of experience, ability and class.

“Such smooth switching of gears doesn’t come without experience. He has played a lot of domestic cricket, T20 cricket, captained the IPL, so he knows how to absorb the pressure. How do you do things like that? Intends to take the bowler and he is not calculated. Easy. He started slowly before keeping the scoreboard ticking and eventually went after it. We all know how destructive he can be. “It was a decent innings from a batsman who has experience, ability and class,” Gambhir added.
