Dubai: In the 13th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020), Rajasthan Royals (RR) wicketkeeper batsman Sanju Samson has been impressed by his game. With Samson’s ability to play big shots effortlessly, the team recorded thrilling wins against Chennai Super Kings and Kings XI Punjab in close matches. After his blazing innings, Kerala Congress MP Shashi Tharoor called him the next Dhoni (MS Dhoni).
Sanju Samson has given a statement after being compared to Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Samson has said that no one can play like Dhoni and no one should try it.
Samson, however, dismissed the comparison saying, ‘I can say with certainty that no one can play like Dhoni, nor should anyone try to play like him. Playing like MS Dhoni is not easy at all, so it should be left aside. I never think of playing like MS Dhoni. He is a veteran of Indian cricket and of this game ‘.
Samson said, ‘I just focus on my game, what can I do, how can I do the best in it and how can I win the match’.
Former cricketer and Bharatiya Janata Party MP Gautam Gambhir also agreed with this Kerala batsman. Gambhir said that this 25-year-old player should focus on becoming Sanju Samson of Indian cricket instead of becoming the next Dhoni.
Samson has strengthened his claim for a place in the Indian team by playing 74 and 85 runs. Asked whether he felt that he had done enough to attract the attention of the national selectors. Samson said, ‘Maybe yes, maybe no. I think I know that I am in a good rhythm, my only dream is to win the match for my team. Right now my focus is on IPL ‘.
