Would like to confirm my place in the team
There is a lot of talent inside Sanju Samson. People believe that the selectors did not give him as many opportunities as other players. And, there is some degree of truth in this. Sanju has always been dropped from the team as soon as he fails in 1-2 matches. This is the reason that he has been able to play only 1 ODI and 10 T20 matches in so many years.
He scored 46 runs in the only ODI. At the same time, 117 runs have come out of his bat in T20. Although Sanju is a much better batsman than this. In such a situation, he will look to strengthen his position in the team by performing better in this series ( IND vs SL ). At the same time, captain Rohit Sharma will also have high hopes for him.
