Trinidad: Sanju Samson showcased his remarkable prowess in the third ODI against the West Indies in Trinidad. The Kerala-born cricketer made an impressive start, hitting a six on only the second ball he faced. Samson continued his onslaught in the next over, scoring a total of 15 runs in just four balls, including another six. He also survived a close lbw review in the following over. The Rajasthan Royals captain went on to score a commendable 51 runs off 39 balls, forming a strong 70 partnership with Shubman Gill. Notably, Samson hit four sixes during his impressive innings.
In the fourth over, Ruturaj Gaekwad (8) was dismissed, but it didn’t deter Samson’s brilliance. By the end of the match, India had amassed an impressive total of 223 runs for the loss of two wickets in just 31.3 overs. Ishan Kishan (77 off 64 balls) was the other notable contributor to the team’s success. Kishan’s performance earned him a spot in the elite list, becoming the sixth Indian player to score 50+ runs in all three ODI series. The last Indian to achieve this feat was Shreyas Iyer in 2020, during a series against New Zealand.
The list of Indian players who have achieved this feat includes legends such as MS Dhoni, Muhammad Azharuddin, Dilip Vengsarkar, and K Srikanth, who made their mark in previous years by scoring half-centuries against strong opponents like Australia and Sri Lanka.
India’s decision to rest Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma for the second consecutive ODI allowed Sanju Samson to retain his place in the team. Under the leadership of Hardik Pandya, the Indian team demonstrated their dominance once again. Additionally, India made two changes to the lineup, replacing Axar Patel and Umran Malik with Gaekwad and Jayadev Unadkhat.
Sanju Samson’s impressive performance has garnered praise from fans and experts alike, with videos of his spectacular six-hitting ability circulating on social media. His exceptional skills continue to captivate cricket enthusiasts, establishing him as a force to be reckoned with in the international cricket arena.
