Sanju Samson finds ways to get out at times when he shouldn’t: Simon Doull. Doull’s remarks came after Samson lost his wickets for 12 runs in the second ODI against South Africa.

Sanju Samson suffered yet another setback in the second One-Day International against South Africa on December 19 in Gqeberha. His comeback to the field after missing the World Cup 2023 did not live up to expectations. Simon Doull, a former New Zealand cricketer turned broadcaster, analyzed Samson’s performance, pointing out a troubling trend in his dismissals.

The 29-year-old’s struggle to find consistency at the crease continued. As he managed only 12 runs off 23 balls, repeating a familiar pattern. Doull noted that his dismissal reflected a recurring fault in his technique. – Attempting to shuffle away and eventually nicking the ball onto his stumps. While this strategy might work in less hostile situations, it proved unsuitable when confront with a challenging pitch with movement for the ball.

“He hasn’t had a long run, but he’s had opportunities in back-to-back games.” Sanju Samson’s dismissal was quite typical. You know, he always finds a way to get out when he shouldn’t. He’s doing a slight shuffle away from his body. That occurs frequently. “It’s fine to play away from your body on Indian surfaces when the ball doesn’t do much. ” Doull told Star Sports.

“But it’s nipping around a little, quite a dangerous shot, you see the angle of the bat at 45 degrees. ” It’s not a standard straight bat shot. He wants that wand far too often outside the line of off-stump, and I think that’s why people are dissatisfied with Sanju,” he added.

Sanju Samson lacks consistency when opportunity knocks the door

Given his inconsistency, particularly with only one significant score during the previous West Indies tour, the discussion over Samson’s place in the Indian team has heated up. The right-handed batter’s position in the team is jeopardized by the strong performances of wicketkeepers KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan in previous matches.

Despite his talent, the Kerala batter has only played 15 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and 24 Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) for India. While his T20I statistics are concerning, averaging less than 20, his record in the 50-over format shows potential, with an average of 50.25 and a strike rate of 101.
