The Indian team selectors have once again left out Sanju Samson for the upcoming five-match T20I series against Australia. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced the squad for the home series, with Suryakumar Yadav being named as the captain and Ruturaj Gaikwad as the vice-captain.
The squad for the series includes players such as Ishan Kishan, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Tilak Varma, and others. Sanju Samson’s exclusion from the squad has sparked disappointment and frustration among Indian cricket fans. Many believe that the selectors made a mistake by not including him in the team, especially after his performance in the 2023 World Cup.
The upcoming T20I series will consist of five matches, with the first match scheduled to take place on November 23 at the Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam. The remaining matches will be held at different venues across India.
The absence of Sanju Samson in the T20I squad has led to mixed reactions on Twitter, with fans expressing their disappointment and questioning the selectors’ decision. Despite the controversy surrounding Samson’s exclusion, the Indian team will be looking to put on a strong performance against Australia in the upcoming series.
