Sanju Samson Got Trolled For Yet Another Failure In 1st ODI vs WI

Called back to the Indian ODI team after a full one year, Sanju Samson did himself and his stocks and his reputation of being an inconsistent batter no favor as he managed only 12 runs in the first ODI against the West Indies on Friday at the Queen’s Park Oval, Port Of Spain.

Samson, who is dropped from the following T20I squad, came into this game with a lot of expectations, especially after his brilliant innings in his last international outing – 77 off 42 balls against Ireland last month.

He was selected in the eleven ahead of the likes of Ishan Kishan and Ruturaj Gaikwad, but both of them aren’t really options for the number 5 position which was given to Samson today.

Sanju Samson continues his inconsistent show

Moreover, Samson falling for a cheap score today hurt India as the Kerala batsman failed to capitalize on the platform India’s top three had given them.

Samson came in to bat at the score of 230/3 in the 36th over. A total of around 350 looked imminent at that time but India eventually finished with 308/7 as the batters only meandered in the last 10 overs and nobody from numbers 4 to 7 could really put up a big score.

After being 4 off 8 balls, Samson launched Akeal Hosein for a flat six over deep mid-wicket to make his initial statement. However, that energy soon fizzled away as after knocking around for a couple of overs then, Samson was trapped lbw by seamer Romario Shepherd, failing in his attempt to flick it on the legside.

Given out on the field, Samson challenged the umpire’s decision with a review. But it was to no avail as the ball was shown “umpire’s call” by HawkEye and was Kerala batsman had to make his way back to the dressing room with his head down, and his legions of fans on social media were disappointed and frustrated as Samson wasted another opportunity.

Sanju Samson was trolled for his inconsistency in the national colours following his cheap score of only 12 runs today.
