Sanju Samson has long been a fan favourite as a prolific batter, lightning quick behind the stumps, and humble human being. Samson scored a magnificent unbeaten 43 off 39 balls in the 2nd ODI win, displaying explosive batting skills.
The wicket-keeper batter has made the most of the few opportunities that have come his way, not only leading the batting attack but also shining behind the stumps with three spectacular catches. And for that, he received his first ‘Man of the Match’ award in international cricket.
Samson has only played six ODIs and 16 T20Is for India so far.
