“Go Figure”: Shashi Tharoor on Sanju Samson

Sanju Samson, a right-handed batter, has frequently found himself in and out of Team India, and he hasn’t been able to consistently get games.

Samson was benched for the second ODI against New Zealand after scoring 36 in the first ODI due to team management’s preference for a batting all-rounder with the ability to roll his arm over.Sanju Samson was placed on the bench for the third ODI because Team India did not alter their starting lineup.

The series’ head coach for India, VVS Laxman, spoke to the host broadcaster prior to the third one-day international in which he discussed Rishabh Pant and where the left-hander should bat in ODIs.

Shashi Tharoor, tweeted that he was unimpressed with Laxman’s remarks “Pant has performed well at No. 4, so it’s crucial to support him, according to @VVSLaxman281. Samson averages 66 in ODIs, has scored runs in each of his last five games, and is currently on the bench. He has failed in ten of his last eleven innings and is a good player who is out of form. Oh, right. @IamSanjuSamson, “Mr. Tharoor tweeted.

Samson has played 11 one-day internationals so far, during which he has amassed 330 runs at an average of 66, with an 86 not out as his highest score. We wanted the sixth bowler to come in, so Sanju Samson missed out and Hooda came in, India captain Shikhar Dhawan said after the second ODI was called off due to rain. Rain forced the cancellation of the second One-Day International between India and New Zealand.  The game was eventually abandoned due to rain when India had scored 89 runs in 12.5 overs.

Kane Williamson, the captain of New Zealand, won the toss for the third ODI and chose to bowl first.
