IND vs SL: “Where Is Sanju Samson”- Twitter Reacts As Wicket-keeper Batter Gets Dropped From Indian ODI Squad

Sanju Samson, a top wicketkeeper-batsman, was yet again left out of the ODI team when the BCCI released the roster for the forthcoming white-ball series’ on Tuesday (December 27). This is amidst his outstanding performance in the 50-over version of the game in 2022.

Sanju scored 284 runs for the Men in Blue in nine innings this season and was not out five times, but he has not been given any consideration for the position.

Ishan Kishan And KL Rahul Preferred Over Sanju Samson

In the World Cup year, when ODIs would be the emphasis more than T20Is, he has been benched even though he is in the T20I team for the Sri Lanka T20Is. Due to the absence of Rishabh Pant from the ODI squad as well, his omission from the team came as a significant shock.

Ishan Kishan has been chosen by the BCCI to serve as the team’s wicketkeeper-batsman, and KL Rahul will serve as his backup. While Rahul isn’t a routine wicket-keeper, he has continued to play quite a few games as the wicketkeeper, including the latest ODI series against Bangladesh, where India was without Rishabh Pant and Ishan Kishan was not chosen for the first two games.

Fans and supporters of Sanju, a wicketkeeper-batter who has played 11 ODIs for India to date, 10 of which were in 2022, have expressed outrage at the wicketkeeper-batter’s exclusion from the ODI team and criticized the BCCI’s choice to do so.

On November 25, Sanju played his final ODI innings for India against New Zealand in Auckland, scoring 36 runs from 38 balls.
