Fan’s Reaction To Sanju Samson Being Dropped
Social Media on fire after Kerala star was dropped once again in the second ODI against New Zealand
IND vs NZ 2nd ODI,Fan’s Reaction: Indian cricket fans are furious with BCCI and the team management after Sanju Samson was once again left out of the team for the second One-Day International of the three-match series against New Zealand.
Sanju Samson has been a member of the Indian team setup for a long time, but he is not given enough opportunities despite the fact that he has performed well whenever he has had the chance to play for his country, which has irritated fans.
Fan’s Reaction: Fans Going Crazy
Some cricket fans have started arguing that Sanju Samson is a victim of favouritism on the part of the BCCI since they are so incensed, and many have attacked the management for allegedly being casteist. Sanju Samson was not chosen for the tour of Bangladesh, which raises concerns about the selectors’ decision to make a player play in one game before benching him for the remaining games and series.
Fan’s Reaction: Shikhar Dhawan’s comments on Sanju’s selection
After the second match was washed out in the three-match ODI series. Skipper Shikhar Dhawan stated the reason for dropping Samson for the second game. He quoted saying “We wanted the sixth bowler to come in, so Sanju Samson missed out and Hooda came in.”
Fan’s Reaction: Ground to Earth from Heart
The gesture from Kerala star Sanju Samson after the second match which was washed out due to heavy rain resulted in the match being ended with no winner. Fans have spotted Sanju Samson on the field helping ground staff members to pull the covers over the ground. Sanju was so humble and left all his emotions behind to be left of the second ODI and helped selflessly the ground staff members, which shows how pure of a soul is Sanju Samson.

Fan’s Reaction: Some feel its a discrimination towards Sanju Samson from BCCI
Despite having the opportunity to play against New Zealand in the first ODI. Where he did brilliantly (36 runs, 38 balls, and 4 fours). He was then once again benched for the second ODI. While Sanju Samson is being treated unfairly, Rishabh Pant consistently makes the starting lineup despite consistently performing poorly. Moreover fans are unable to figure out what Sanju Samson has done wrong to deserve this treatment.

Sanju was dropped despite playing well cos we don't have enough all rounders and part time options. My two cents on why there's a dearth of all rounders and part timers. #NZvIND #SanjuSamson pic.twitter.com/78nKQStEkK

India messing up with team selection. Why you need Pant in the XI when Sanju Samson can keep also if Pant play at 4 then you are wasting both Sky and Sanju down the order. Bring in Hooda at 6 and ask Pant to go back to domestic and reinvent himself in white ball pic.twitter.com/E0rA3zcXTA

Fan’s Reaction: Hope for Positive News next time around
Even though we did not get to see team India perform in the Second ODI. And BCCI along with skippers facing criticism from around the country. We shall hope that things can change and the management can give a good number of chances to Sanju Samson in the future.
