Young Indian wicketkeeper-batsman, Sanju Samson is always the talk of the town for his heroics with the bat. However, his one aspect that is massively underrated is his fielding.
Although Sanju Samson is a wicketkeeper, but his fielding skills have been exceptionally well and he can be considered one of the best fielders in world cricket at the moment.
Sanju Samson Saves Another Spectacular Boundary As He Takes Flight Against Australia In The Third T20I
Samson’s heroics were once again visible as team India took to the field against Australia in the third T20I after winning the toss. It was on the second ball of the 14th over when Glenn Maxwell took the charge against Shardul Thakur and hit him straight on the long on boundary. However, Samson was on the boundary as he flew in mid-air and saved the boundary, giving away only a couple of runs.

That was indeed one of the greatest saves that world cricket has ever seen. The Indian team won the toss in the third T20I and decided to field first. The Men in Blue had a solid start as they clinched Aaron Finch’s wicket early in the powerplay. However, Steve Smith and Matthew Wade were involved in a decent partnership as they carried Australia forward.
Steve Smith departed in the 10th over of the game as Washington Sundar clinched his second wicket of the day. The Men in Blue will be trying to clinch Australia’s wickets and keep them to a low score as Australia were cruising at 151-2 after the 17th over when this report was published.
