Sanju Samson, the Indian Wicket Keeper, remarked on the challenges faced by Indian cricketers, emphasizing the need for adjusting to various batting positions in the order. In a crucial match against the West Indies National Cricket Team at the Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba, Trinidad on Tuesday, August 1, Sanju Samson delivered an outstanding performance.

Assigned the No.4 spot in the batting order, Sanju exhibited an aggressive and impressive start to his innings, hitting three remarkable sixes within his first 13 deliveries. Demonstrating a batting masterclass, the wicketkeeper-batter went on to score a splendid half-century during the game. Unfortunately, his innings was cut short when he was dismissed by Romario Shepherd after reaching the milestone.

Sanju Samson 50 against West Indies 3rd ODI

Sanju Samson scored a total of 51 runs at a strike rate of 124.39, comprising two fours and four sixes. India finished with massive 351 of 50 overs with several players getting half centuries. Shubman Gill was the highest scorer with a brilliant innings of 85 runs.

He highlighted his different strategies for approaching various opponents, particularly using footwork to assert dominance over the bowlers’ lengths.

“It feels really great to spend some time in the middle, score some runs and contribute for your country. I had different plans for different players, I wanted to use my feet and dominate the lengths of the bowlers.”

Sanju Samson further talked about how playing in India is getting tough day by day because of extreme competition:

“Being an Indian cricketer is a challenging thing (speaking about adjusting to playing in different batting positions), I have played domestic cricket for the last 8-9 years and for India here and there, so it gives you a bit of understanding of playing in different positions. It is the number of overs you get and it is not about batting position so you gotta prepare accordingly.”

Sanju Samson’s ODI Stats should be the talk of the town. With an average of 55.71 and a strike rate of 104, he should definitely be in the ODI World Cup Squad.
