“I can’t believe he’s (Sanju Samson) not in the Indian side in all three formats, he’s such a great player, I’m really looking forward to watching him in the IPL. Your best players should face most balls. If you look at our side Butler, Smith, and Samson are our best batsmen”

The topic of Samson’s inclusion in the Indian team has been discussed a lot in the past. Also, fans of the 25-year-old batsman clamored for him to play for the team India. But, Samson could manage to play four matches for team India in the past.
