Sanju Samson out of the World Cup:

Even this time, there is a lot of discussion regarding Sanju. Former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh commented on Sanju not being selected for the World Cup. Speaking on his YouTube channel, Harbhajan said that the team already has two wicketkeepers in KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan. That’s why Sanju didn’t get a place.

Harbhajan said:

Sanju Samson’s exclusion has sparked many debates. If you maintain an average of 55 in ODIs and still are not part of the squad, it will obviously seem strange. But I think Sanju wasn’t chosen because India already has two wicketkeepers, KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan, who are both part of the World Cup squad.

Sanju will have to wait for his opportunities. I know accepting this can be difficult at times and can be disappointing for anyone. But he has age on his side, and I appeal to him to continue working hard and wait for his time.

Because he provides stability at number four and five. Samson is also a good player and can hit sixes when needed, but given the current circumstances, you can’t keep three wicketkeeper-batsmen in a team. It will be challenging to fit all of them in one XI.’

Sanju has scored 390 runs for India in ODIs from 2021 till now. He has made these runs with an average of 55.7. Recently, he played for Team India on the West Indies tour. In two matches there, Sanju scored 60 runs. In his last ODI innings, Sanju played a 51-run inning on 41 balls against Windies. He played this innings at number four. In the previous match, he played at number three, where Sanju made nine runs. Sanju’s strike rate in his ODI career is 104
