The name Sanju Samson has received  a lot of attention in the cricket community recently. Samson's snub by the BCCI selectors in every series has angered some of the fans.

 But putting the selectors aside, we need to talk about how unfortunate this gifted young guy has been.

Sanju Samson is a wicketkeeper batsman, in the Indian squad, there are already three wicketkeeper batsman: Pant, KL Rahul, and Ishan Kishan. As  a result, the situation has become tricky for Sanju to find a place in the team.


Sanju Samson has been ignored by selectors because of his inconsistency, but despite his recent good form, they left him out of the T20 World Cup squad.


The selectors has selected Samson for the tour of New Zealand amidst the heavy brawl on social media about ignoring Samson. However, he was benched throughout the series.


He scored 36 runs in an ODI against New Zealand, but he was again snubbed by the selectors for the other series. This unusual happening has sparked criticism of the selectors.


Samson, who is looking for a chance to prove himself, has been roped in for the ongoing Sri Lanka series in the absence of Pant.

Finally Selected!

In addition to being dismissed for 5 runs, he also had an injury while fielding and was ruled out of the series. This is probably the peak of misfortune isn’t it.

Zero Luck

With his injury, Sanju's place in the upcoming World Cup is now in doubt.

World Cup?

Samson is one of the best talents in Team India’s young squad. He rose to the top in the IPL with his classic approach and became the captain of the Punjab Kings team, but when it comes to international cricket, Samson is haunted by bad luck. Period!
