The Sri Lankan tour will be quite important for Sanju Samson
The Sri Lanka tour is a very important one for Sanju Samson because he is no longer the first-choice wicketkeeper for the team. However, if the right-hand batsman performs well against Sri Lanka he might get ahead in the race of national selection. Samson played his last T20I series last year in Australia and since then he has been not included in the limited-overs team.
Ishan Kishan is another player who will be fighting for selection in the national side for the T20 world cup. The two main wicketkeeping choice of Indian team are in England for the Test match series so Sanju and Kishan have been given the responsibility to keep the wickets. Meanwhile, only one of them will be selected in playing XI in the Sri Lanka tour because both are wicketkeepers and they both bat in the middle order.
