Rajasthan Royals has been off to a great start in IPL 2020 and Sanju Samson deserves a lot of credit for that. Samson hays exhibited a show of breathtaking strokeplay. In three games, he has already hit two half-centuries and both came in winning causes.
After witnessing his master-class knock against KXIP, congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram, Shashi Tharoor even drew his comparisons with MS Dhoni, calling him the next MS Dhoni.
Sanju Samson recently was asked to his give his opinion on the same, to which he very categorically rejected all the comparisons with the veteran. He stated that it is next to impossible to play like MS Dhoni and no one should even try to do that.
“I am sure that no one can and no one should try to play like him. It’s not at all easy to play like MS Dhoni, so leave that aside. I never think of playing like MS Dhoni. He is a legend of Indian cricket, legend of the game,” Samson said.
“I only focus on my game, what I can do, how I can do it best and how I can win matches,” he added.
Earlier, Gautam Gambhir also gave a reply to Tharoor’s tweet, saying that Sanju Samson doesn’t need to be next anyone, but rather ‘the Sanju Samson of Indian Cricket.’
“Sanju Samson doesn’t need to be next anyone. He will be ‘the’ Sanju Samson of Indian Cricket.” Gambhir Tweeted.
