Trivandrum. India lost to West Indies in the second match and cries for Sanju Samson’s inclusion in the team were again heard. Sanju has tried everything to get into this team but all in vain as Pant is the favorite of Ravi Shastri and Kohli.
Pant speaks loudly, tattoos his body, buys expensive cars, dances at parties, and basically fulfills all criteria to be in the team. Kohli though as brushed aside these allegations and given a fresh take on the issue. Kohli said that Sanju will make Pant better batsmen. Sanju’s task is to analyze the mistakes of Pant and make him a better player who can help India win the T20 world cup.
Skipper Virat Kohli pulled off a brilliant catch at boundary ropes but it wasn’t enough for the hosts as West Indies beat India by eight wickets at Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday. He spoke about Sanju Samson’s chances in the press conference and said ” Sanju’s task is not playing for India, he is too talented and we need him in the dressing room. He helps the technical team in identifying flaws in batsmen and help them correct it. Ravi Bhai is too busy with other things. You know what I am talking about, so we need players who help the coaching staff in analyzing games.”
Kohli has a brilliant cricketing mind and we should thank him for utilizing Samson in an innovative way
