The absence of Ishan Kishan, who opted for a break, has opened up opportunities for other players in the squad. Interestingly, there’s no clear communication from the team management regarding the non-inclusion of KL Rahul, a key figure in the ODI format.

Raina explicitly favored Samson over established players like Rahul and Kishan, emphasizing his preference for the Kerala player in the crucial role. He further mentioned that even if Rishabh Pant is available for selection, Samson would still be his top choice for the position.

Suresh Raina said on Sanju Samson.

“You cannot sign off Sanju Samson. The way he scored a hundred against South Africa on latter’s soil. He plays fearlessly and is a superb wicketkeeper. Samson is also a captain material. He has done really well whenever he has got chances,” said Raina — Expert, JioCinema and Sports18 .

“We have some very good options for wicketkeeper-batter role — KL Rahul, Jitesh Sharma, Ishan Kishan and Pant whenever he comes back after getting fit. I prefer to have Sanju in the middle-order because he has a lot of shots. He plays those pick-up shots against pacers from the length. Hopefully, he performs well in the IPL too before the selectors sit down to select the team for the T20 World Cup.

So, it is a good chance for Sanju against Afghanistan, and he can be our X-Factor in the World Cup,” he added.
