IND Vs SL: Team India will play the first match of the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka at Premadasa Stadium today. Through this match, Shikhar Dhawan is getting a chance to take over the command of Team India for the first time. Star wicket-keeper batsman Sanju Samson, led by Shikhar Dhawan, may get a chance to debut in ODI cricket. However, Sanju Samson will have a challenge to prove himself.
For the last five years, Sanju Samson has been the subject of discussion in Indian cricket for his performance in the IPL. With star players like MS Dhoni and Rishabh Pant, however, Sanju Samson has got few opportunities to prove his talent. Sanju Samson made his T20 debut for Team India five years ago.
In five years, however, Sanju Samson has got a chance to play only seven T20 matches. But in view of the T20 World Cup to be held this year, the Sri Lanka series is a good opportunity for a player like Sanju Samson. For the T20 World Cup, Sanju Samson can still make his place in Team India at number four and fifth.
Sanju Samson has not been able to play a big innings so far
Sanju Samson has impressed everyone with his performance in IPL. Sanju, however, has not been able to cross the mark of more than 25 after playing seven T20 matches in international cricket. In the absence of Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson is almost certain to get the role of wicket-keeper batsman. However, Sanju Samson will have to fight Ishaan Kishan for this spot.
According to the indications from the team management, the debut of Sanju Samson is almost fixed. After becoming a part of playing 11, Sanju Samson can be seen batting at number four.
