“No Fancy Hairstyle No Tattoos, Didn’t Marry Actress,” Fans Slam BCCI For Excluding Sanju Samson


“No Fancy Hairstyle No Tattoos, Didn’t Marry Actress,” Fans Slam BCCI For Excluding Sanju Samson

India and England both the teams will be looking forward to win the 3-match ODI series by winning the third ODI which will be played tomorrow at Old Trafford Cricket Ground, Greater Manchester since the series is tied at 1-1 as of now. Earlier the Indian cricket team won the T20I series and it will certainly like to end the tour with a win before going to West Indies where it will play 3 ODIs and 5 T20Is.

Recently, the selectors announced the team for the West Indian tour and many cricket lovers were annoyed because of the exclusion of Sanju Samson. The Kerala cricketer enjoys a huge fan following and he has been in and out of the team on a regular basis. This time when he got the chance to play in the T20I match against Ireland, he played a solid knock of 77 runs for which he played only 42 deliveries. However even after performing well, Sanju Samson didn’t get any further chance to prove himself in the T20I and ODIs series against England and now the selectors have not selected him even for the West Indies tour.

In the squad which has been named for the West Indies tour, there are three wicketkeeper-batsmen: Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan and Dinesh Karthik. Fans of Sanju Samson are of the opinion that the type of backing that Ishan Kishan and Rishabh Pant are getting is not given to Sanju Samson, in fact many have alleged that Sanju Samson is being discriminated because he is a south Indian.

There is one more reason behind this anger of fans – while the combined runs scored by the trio (Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan and DK) in the nine innings of the shortest format is 94, Sanju Samson has scored a total of 134 runs in his last three innings. Moreover, Sanju Samson is the skipper of the IPL team Rajasthan Royals and in the IPL 2022, he led his team to the finals. With this achievemen, he has become the second skipper of RR to take his team to the finals.

People have taken to the micro-blogging site Twitter and slammed the Board of Control for Cricket in India for playing with the career of a talented cricketer. Many feel that Sanju Samson should shift to some other cricketing nation as his talent is not getting the respect that it deserves in India while few are of the opinion that the cricketer is being ignored because he does not do any show-off or have fancy tattoos or piercings like some other big names of the Indian cricket.

Here are some of the selected reactions:
