Sanju Samson played one of the finest innings of Indian Premier League at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, Hyderabad. Despite losing Jos Buttler, Rahane and Samson combined together to lead Rajasthan Royals to a competitive total. While Rahane scored 70, it was Samson, who earned a lot of praise for his chance less knock. He second century of the Indian Premier League came off only 52 deliveries. Gautam Gambhir was mighty impressed with Samson and heaped praise on the young batsman.

“I normally don’t like to talk about individuals in cricket. But seeing his skills I am glad to note that Sanju Samson is currently the best Wicketkeeper batsman in India. For me he should be batting number 4 in the World Cup @BCCI @rajasthanroyals @IPL @StarSportsIndia,” he wrote on his Twitter handle.

Men in Blue have tried different players at the No. 4 spot but they haven’t been able to finalize one till date. With Gambhir backing Rajasthan Royals’ batsman Sanju Samson, it will be interesting to see whether wise men of Indian selection committee would consider him while naming World Cup squad.
