A wonderful Indian batter Sanju Samson stated it has been “tough” for him to be on the sidelines all around his international career but he wants to stay positive.
Having initial days of a notability as a teenager and then step into International debut in a T20I against Zimbabwe here in 2015, till date the cricketer’s of Kerala has featured only in seven ODIs and 16 T20Is.
Sanju ultimately got his dream chances in the second string side in the Ireland’s recent tour, Zimbabwe and West Indies. Sanju will find a way for regular keeper-batter Rishabh Pant when the Asia Cup starts in the UAE.
Samson stated the official broadcasters of the India-Zimbabwe ODI series.”I am a believer that whatever you go through in your career, you have to take it in a positive manner,”
“It’s very tough, it definitely gets into your head when you know that all your friends are playing and you’re not,” Samson state.
In spite playing so little, Samson said he’s fortunate to have a “good fan following”.
“I feel surprised (on his fan following) that despite playing very little for India, I get good support.”
Sanju, who successfully took three catches, on Saturday, harbor India’s 162-run chase with an undefeated 43 not given his wicket to return with the man-of-the-match in India’s series-clinching second ODI against Zimbabwe here.
He concluded, “It (IPL) has changed my perspective towards cricket. Earlier I used to think only about my batting, my game. Captaincy helps bring about a different mindset — think about others as well apart from your game”.
