Watch: Sanju Samson’s no-look sixes impress India cricketers and coaches in New Zealand
Sanju Samson is one of India's best batters, but the team management and selectors have never given him regular chances.

India are without Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and KL Rahul for the white-ball matches in New Zealand.

Stand-in captain Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson, Shreyas Iyer, Shubman Gill, and Deepak Hooda were part of the net session before the first T20I. BCCI shared a video of Indian players hitting big shots, indicating that the upcoming three-match series against the Kiwi would be a high-scoring affair.

Sanju Samson and Shreyas Iyer hit no-look sixes. They both were not in the squad for the ICC T20 World Cup. While Iyer was seen hitting no-look sixes, Samson dispatched the ball over the square leg and the long leg. The shots earned praise from the Indian cricketers and support staff.

The stand-in head coach VVS Laxman wants players to play aggressive cricket in New Zealand. “The approach has to be different in T20Is. You can’t play slowly. There is a need for bowlers who can bat a bit when required.”
