Sanju Samson, the right-handed batsman made a glorious comeback into the national side after a long gap of four years. The Indian cricketer who made his T20I debut in the year 2015 was finally given a chance to play for India.
Sanju Samson last played for India during the T20i series against Bangladesh T20Is in November 2015. Well, one doesn’t see a cricketer returning to international cricket after five years and hitting a huge six on the very first ball.
Yes, Sanju Samson landed the very first ball he played into the crowd and the whole stadium was overjoyed. The Indian skipper, Virat Kohli also couldn’t stop himself from jumping in joy after witnessing that shot.
