IPL 2021: Sanju Samson needs to work on his batting feels Gavaskar
Sanju Samson will waste his god given talent feels Sunil Gavaskar and shares some more insights!
Sanju Samson the captain of the Rajasthan Royals will be delighted with the first win of the IPL remainder. Unfortunately, Samson’s performance did not go well. He wasn’t able to contribute with the bat against the Punjab Kings.
Youngster Kartik Tyagi helped the team to cross the line against Punjab Kings. The wickets proved to be crucial as RR won by two runs.
Legendary cricketer Sunil Gavaskar believes that Sanju Samson should work on his shot selections. If he wants to regularly play for the Indian Cricket Team it will be a crucial challenge to work hard on that.
Sanju Samson can play big innings. Firstly, he needs to work on the timing of the shot. Secondly, his form and the way he lifts the bat are crucial. As a result, slowly by slowly he can capitalize on a big individual score.
Sunil Gavaskar also feels that “What has led him down is the shot selection. Even at the international level, he doesn’t open the batting there. He was the second or the third wicket down. And he looks to hit the first ball out of the ground. That is impossible. That is impossible even if you’ve been in the richest vein of form. You have got to maybe knock it around for maybe twos and threes and get the feet moving and then look to play”, said Gavaskar.
He also feels that a God-given talent will be wasted if Sanju Samson doesn’t focus on this aspect of his cricket journey. It will be one such step that will differentiate him from the rest of the squad.
