Not selected for the T20 World Cup, Sanju Samson Discusses the Road Ahead

T20 World Cup: Sanju Samson thinks he has improved recently to the point where no one would describe him as a one-dimensional cricket player. The spry Kerala keeper-batter missed out on the T20 World Cup ticket but realises that with the calibre of cricket being produced in India on a daily basis, making the elite 15 of the national side is more complex than ever.

“Playing different roles is something I have worked on for a lot of years. I am confident of batting anywhere in the order.” Samson believes that to be successful, one needs to be flexible. You should not fix a spot for yourself. You cannot tell people: ‘I am an opener or I am a finisher.’ In the last three-four years, playing in various roles and spots (in the order) has added a new dimension to my game,” he added.

The 27-year-old claimed it is difficult and there is a lot of competition to get a berth in the Indian team. He has played in seven ODIs and 16 T20Is thus far.

“It really does get challenging. Finding a place in the Indian team is really challenging. There is a lot of competition around, even within players in the team now. When these things happen, it is important to focus on myself,” Samson said in response to a question. “I am happy with the way I am performing. I want to improve….”

The three List A games between India A and New Zealand A, which begin on Thursday in Chennai, will be captained by Samson.

“The quality of cricketers we have in our team is unbelievable. So, it really helps each and every individual to raise their level. We keep on challenging ourselves. We try to perform every time we get an opportunity,” Samson said.

Sanju Samson is pleased to captain the national A squad since the A series consistently maintains the peripheral players on selection committees’ radars.

“They (India A games) are really important. There is not much difference between an A game and an international game. The competition is almost the same. so it is important to make use of the opportunities.”
