He will be so much more consistent: Sunil Gavaskar

Sanju Samson - Sunil Gavaskar

The former Indian cricketer and one of the greatest cricketers in the history of cricket, Sunil Gavaskar has come up with a statement on Sanju Samson.

Sanju Samson has been given a lot of chances by the Indian team but due to his lack of consistency, the right-handed batter has been dropped on several occasions.

In the recently concluded Indian Premier League, Sanju Samson smashed 458 runs after getting featured in all the games for Rajasthan Royals. Moreover, the Kerala-born cricketer has been selected ahead of the upcoming two-match T20I series against Ireland in their backyard.

In that case, Sunil Gavaskar shared a few words about Sanju Samson, saying, "Everybody deserves more chance but you got to make the most of them. What has led Sanju Samson down, because all of us know the tremendous ability that he has, is his shot selection while playing for India.

He looks to attack from the first ball and even in T20Is, there is an opportunity to get your feet going, get your eye… you know with the light and pitch, etc," Sunil Gavaskar was quoted as saying by CricTracker.

"So, yes if his shot selection gets better then he will be so much more consistent whether it is for India or his franchise. Then there will be nobody asking questions about his place in the team," he added.
