Sanju Samson’s omission from India’s T20 World Cup team may not have been shocked many. Despite possessing every characteristic of a great short-format player, Samson has never been able to secure a place in the team due to the absence of only one of them. Read the below article to know what Samson Speaks About Indian Team Selection.
Samson About Indian Team Selection
It is not difficult to identify the missing component in Samson’s situation, who has been unable to combine consistency with his potential and has thus missed out on several opportunities in his international career. Though Samson has been proven consistent in the IPL, he has not been able to make his position in the Indian team. As the 2nd leg of the IPL continues in the UAE, he will be in action for the Rajasthan Royals (RR).
“First of all, when you’re playing for an IPL team and thinking about Indian selection, then it’s a wrong mindset. People do talk a lot about Indian selection and cementing your place but that is actually a by-product – if you perform, you get opportunities.”
It’s important to go into the team with a clear mind: Samson
“Things are much clear. It’s important to go into the team with a clear mind. There will be no doubts about the selection when IPL resumes,” Samson said.
“I think IPL is the most viewed tournament in the world. It will get you noticed. People do say good things about me and they also say other things as well. It’s natural for me now. Everyone is having that kind of pressure. And every one goes through that kind of pressure, knowing that so many people are waiting outside anyway. That’s the reason behind Indian cricket’s success”.
Samson lauded Chetan Sakariya, one of his teammates with the Rajasthan Royals.“I have been with RR since the age of 18. I have seen a lot of Indian talent coming in and going on to play for India as Sakariya did. We give a product to the Indian team. That’s our mindset and that’s how we pick our team. We have to be the fittest team in the IPL,” he stated.
