Team India: Sanju Samson, the wicket-keeper batsman of the Indian cricket team, gets very little chance to be included in the playing eleven of the Indian cricket team, because his selection for the series is very less. Even if the selection is done, the captain is rarely included in the playing eleven. At the same time, even if Sanju fortunately gets a chance to join the playing eleven, he gets out after hitting some good shots, due to which he is not included in the playing eleven again.
Sanju Samson played football
However, KL Rahul captained the ODI series against South Africa, and KL Rahul gave full opportunity to Sanju Samson to play. Sanju also scored his first century in the international ODI format in this series and played an important role in the victory of Team India. In such a situation, it is now expected that Sanju Samson may get a chance to play in the upcoming ODI or T20 series, but Sanju himself has started playing football instead of cricket.
Actually, a video is going viral very fast on social media, in which Sanju Samson is seen playing a football match. Seeing Sanju’s footwork in this football match, it does not seem at all that he is not a football player. Sanju is playing a football match like a real football player. Sanju is seen playing with his father and brother in this football match, and the picture of these three is also going viral on social media. Let us also show you the video of Sanju Samson playing football.
