Thiruvananthapuram: Congress leader and Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor shared some good news from Sri Lanka. It has been reported that Sanju Samson, who was ruled out of the first ODI between India and Sri Lanka, has returned from injury. Sanju’s name will be considered for team selection in the second ODI to be played today. Tharoor announced on Twitter that Sanju has returned from injury.
‘Glad to hear the news from Sri Lanka that Sanju Saomson has recovered from a knee injury. Thiruvananthapuram star ready to play in Indian jersey Congratulations Sanju ‘- Tharoor tweeted.
Fans are eager to know how Sanju will be included in the Indian team that won the first ODI. Sanju was replaced by Ishant Kishan, who made his international debut in the first ODI. Ishant Kishan reached the crease as a one-run stand for India, who chased down a 263-run target.
Kishan (59 off 42 balls with eight fours and two sixes) and skipper Shikhar Dhawan added half-centuries for the second wicket. India won the match by seven wickets with 80 balls to spare and took a 1–0 lead in the series. After scoring a half-century in his ODI debut after the Twenty20, the team management could not avoid Ishan Kishan. With Kishan firmly in the role of wicket-keeper, fans are eager to see if Sanju can be fielded as a batsman.
