Mohammad Kaif On Sanju Samson: Sanju Samson has played 13 T20 matches for India since his debut in 2015. Samson was supported by Rohit Sharma in India’s first T20I against Sri Lanka in February this year.
Samson, who finished runner-up while captaining Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2022, emerged as the ninth-highest run-scorer with 458 runs at an average of 28.63 and a strike-rate of 146.79. Apart from scoring two half-centuries, Samson was mostly dismissed after scoring 30 and 40 runs.
Samson along with Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik and Ishan Kishan are in the race for a place in the T20 World Cup squad, with a chance to do better in the two T20Is against Ireland.
Former India cricketer Mohammad Kaif feels that Samson should try to finish the match to justify his talent. He further added, “Sanju Samson has not done justice to his talent. He plays well in IPL, he starts really well at No. 3, gets good 50-60 runs for Rajasthan Royals.”
Kaif said, “But maybe he has not been that consistent. He has the X-factor, he can win matches for India on his day. But I think Sanju Samson can bat down the order. I suggest Sanju Samson will have to bat well and finish the match.”
Kaif has described Samson as a brilliant finisher, citing his innings of 46 runs in 19 balls against Delhi Capitals in IPL 2022. One of the key features of India’s upcoming two-match T20I series against Ireland is the opportunity it can provide to youngsters like Rahul Tripathi and Umran Malik. Kaif is eager to see Malik, who made it to the squad for the T20I series against South Africa, but will also play for India when the time comes.
He said, “I would like to see Umran Malik play for India one day. But at the same time, I don’t want to rush with him. Like, Rahul Dravid is making sure he is sitting in the dugout, watching the match from outside.” He has the pace, he is strong and is in good form at the moment.”
He further said, “I am not alone, the whole of India wants to see him play for the country one day. His time will come but Rahul Dravid is doing a good job with him and when the time comes, he will get a chance to play for India.” “
With Tripathi scoring an impressive 413 runs for Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2022 at an average of 37.54 and a strike rate of 158.23, Kaif feels the right-handed batsman is ready to play for India.
