Rajasthan Royals have had a dream start this season beating three-time IPL champions Chennai Super Kings in the opening match at Sharjah. Much of the credit for Rajasthan’s win should go to Sanju Samson as he gave the Royals the much-needed start with a blistering knock.

Australian legend Shane Warne has now come in support of the young batsmen from Kerela who has shown glimpses of some sublime hitting in the first game against CSK.

Warne surprised with Sanju Samson not playing for India

The former leg spinner is literally very surprised to see that someone who possesses so much calibre isn’t playing all forms of cricket for India. For the Aussie legend, Sanju Samson is one of the most exciting players he’s witnessed in the last few years.

“Sanju Samson, what a player he is. I have said for a long time and I think Sanju Samson is probably one of the most exciting players I have seen for a long time. I am surprised that he is not playing all forms of cricket for India,” said Warne in an Instagram live session done by the Rajasthan Royals.

Shane Warne further went on to say that since Sanju is that good of a player he has to be included in the Indian team on consistent bases. Warne is hoping that Sanju has a consistent run for the Rajasthan Royals side this year so then lays a platform for him to get considered for team India in long run.

“He is that good. He is an absolute champion he is got all the shots, quality, and class. So, hopefully, he has a consistent year and helps Rajasthan Royals lift the IPL trophy and I hope to see in him Indian colours in all three forms of cricket,” added the legendary cricketer.
