“He has to start performing in first-class matches” - S Sreesanth’s advice to Sanju Samson
Former India pacer Sreesanth reckons that Kerala keeper-batter Sanju Samson must start performing in domestic matches to strengthen his chances of playing for the country. The latter has been in and out of India’s white-ball squads for the last few years.
Speaking to the Hindustan Times, Sreesanth, who has played with Samson for Kerala, opined:
“It’s a request to him - he has to start performing in first-class matches. Yes, IPL is very important. IPL will give him fame, popularity, and riches, everything across the globe. But I have this strong feeling - for any cricketer for that matter - that they need to start doing extremely well for the state side, especially in first-class cricket.
“Sanju has to come out and perform in first-class matches. Not just score a hundred, score 200s. Come and make the Kerala team win the Ranji Trophy! Make Kerala team win the Vijay Hazare Trophy. Then, the Kerala cricketers will come out on top,” the former pacer added.
Samson captains the Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the IPL and has an impressive record in the T20 league. His last first-class match for Kerala was against Gujarat in Surat in December 2019.
