Sanju Samson: 'Hero' in IPL, and Team India...? Samson in the face of the cannon even after setting the record

Sanju Samson

The 2024 IPL tournament is already packed. Rajasthan Royals and Lucknow Super Giants are going to play in the fourth match of this tournament. So, in this match Rajasthan Royal team captain Sanju Samson won the toss and decided to bat first. Jasshwi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler started the innings well for Rajasthan, but they quickly returned to the pavilion. Then captain Sanju Samson came out to bat. Continuing his record from the last four seasons, he scored a brilliant half-century in Rajasthan Royals' first match of the 2024 IPL tournament. With this, he scored a half-century in the first match of the IPL for the fourth consecutive season. For the first time since 2020, he has scored 50+ five times in a row in Rajasthan's first match in the IPL tournament. Sanju has scored four fifties and one hundred in the last five seasons. Sanju Samson put up a crucial 93-run partnership with Ryan Parag to get the bricks for the T20 World Cup.

In the end Rajasthan scored 193 runs losing 4 wickets in 20 overs. Sanju remained unbeaten on 82 runs in this match. He scored this run in just 52 balls. Three boundaries and 6 towering sixes can be seen from his bat. And along with that, Sanju kept getting bricks for the upcoming T20 World Cup. Lucknow Super Giant was defeated by 20 runs in this match.

Sanju Samson's runs in the first match of the IPL tournament since 2020:

  • 74 (32) vs CSK 2020
  • 119 (63) vs PK 2021
  • 55 (27) vs. SRH 2022
  • 55 (32) vs SRH 2023
  • 82* (33) vs LSG 2024
In this context, let us inform you that Sanju Samson has been playing for the Indian cricket team for a long time. But, still could not pave his place. Especially in ICC tournaments he is not called even once. He gets a chance in the Go or bilateral series, but cannot show consistency in his performance there either. In this scenario, it cannot be expected that a good performance in the IPL tournament will open the door for Sanju in the upcoming World Cup. And if it does, then it must be called a miracle.
