Well with the kind of players both Sanju Samson and Shubman Gill are, it is very difficult to differentiate between the two and judge who is the better of the two. Both players are on the selector’s radar constantly and will go on to make it big for the national side very soon.
The ongoing IPL season followed by another in the next eight months will shape up the career of these two brilliant cricketers. If Gill and Samson can fare well, they might on the squad for ICC T20 World Cup in India next year.
