Sanju Samson has not made most of the opportunities he has been given in the T20I series so far. After getting a good start in the first two T20Is he has thrown away his wicket. With India making no changes for the final game in Sydney, Samson was given another chance to get a substantial score for his team.
Meanwhile, former Indian batsman Mohammad Kaif said that Samson must learn from Virat Kohli on how to build an innings. Talking to Sony Sports Network, Kaif said that Samson has not made most of the chances he has got in the series so far.
Sanju Samson is India’s X-Factor: Mohammad Kaif
“According to me, we have won the series. He has got two innings and in the first T20I, Sanju Samson was looking good. It felt like he could score runs. And he has the X-factor, he has the ability to hit sixes,” Kaif said during a discussion on the Sony Sports network.
Mohammad Kaif further said that Sanju Samson must learn from Virat Kohli on how to build an innings. Meanwhile, Samson has failed to make the most of the opportunities in the last three T20Is. Batting at No.4, Samson has failed to give stability and his place will be up for grabs, especially, with Suryakumar Yadav sitting outside.
“If Samson gets the opportunity now, then he should take the example from Virat Kohli in the middle. Virat Kohli is a player who also makes the runs through singles and doubles. You can hit the sixes but he needs to learn from Virat Kohli on how to build an innings,” Kaif added.
