Twitterati React: Sanju Samson Has Been Dropped For The T20I Series Against New Zealand

Sanju Samson

After successfully winning the three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka, the Indian cricket team is all set to lock horns with the New Zealand cricket team in the upcoming T20I series, which will begin from 24th of this month.

Ahead of the series, BCCI announced the squad for the upcoming series against New Zealand via its official Twitter handle. While Rohit Sharma and Mohammad Kaif returned to the squad, on the other hand, Hardik Pandya, who was expected to make a comeback to the national side after a long time, has been dropped from the squad after he failed to clear the mandatory fitness test.


However, what came as a surprise to the fans was the exclusion of Sanju Samson from the squad. During the third and final T20i match against Sri Lanka, Sanju Samson made a glorious comeback into the national side after a long gap of four years.

But Sanju Samson failed to make the best of the opportunity given to him as he was dismissed after playing 2 balls. He smashed a six off the first ball and was dismissed on the second ball.

As soon as BCCI announced the names of the squad for the T20i series against New Zealand, Twitterati was left disappointed with the name of Sanju Samson missing from the squad. Twitterati started questioning BCCI the reason behind his exclusion from the team and demanded his return.
