Harbhajan Singh Firm Choices- Sanju Samson

One of the finest spinners India have ever produced, Harbhajan Singh minced no words as he gave his verdict on the wicket-keeper’s role in the Indian team for the T20 World Cup 2024. While the likes of Rishabh Pant, KL Rahul, Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson and Dinesh Karthik are fighting for the spot behind the stumps, Harbhajan feels the Rajasthan Royals captain is ahead of the rest in the race.
After seeing Samson play crucial role in the Royals’ victory against the Mumbai Indians, Harbhajan didn’t just advocate his name for the wicket-keeper’s role but also backed him to succeed Rohit Sharma as India’s T20I skipper.

Samson has been in splendid form for the Royals this season while also leading the franchise to the top of the IPL 2024 standings after 8 games. The wicket-keeper batter is currently the second-highest run-scorer for his franchise this term, having accumulated a total of 314 runs from 8 games at an average of 62.80 and a strike-rate of 152.42. He has also scored 3 half-centuries this campaign.


Words from Cricket Legendary - Rahul Dravid

When Dravid was mentoring the Royals in IPL-7, he spoke highly of Samson and added that he is one of the players in the current lot, who will excel for India shortly. Consistent performances in the IPL meant Samson was picked for the Zimbabwe tour in 2015. He made his first appearance for India in a T20 game, where he scored 19.
