Is Sanju Samson play today’s match?
Initially, when the squad for ongoing India vs West Indies series was announced, Sanju’s name was missing. Therefore fans had trolled the team management badly for dropping Sanju. However, later on, the Kerala batsman gets into the squad following Shikhar Dhawan’s Injury. The wicket-keeper batsman still has not found a chance in the playing 11. And now the team has moved to the home ground of Sanju to play the second match of the ongoing series.
Fans are expecting a chance in the playing 11 for the local boy in today’s match. However, Samson is unlikely to select in today’s match because Rishabh has played quite good in the last match. And now it will be interesting to see whether team management goes with the local boy or Rishabh Pant.
