Former Pakistan leg-spinner Danish Kaneria believes Sanju Samson should have been in Team India’s squad for the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 instead of Rishabh Pant.
Samson has been in and out of white-ball squads and was overlooked for the upcoming T20 World Cup.
“It is unfair to keep Samson out of the team. The selectors should have considered him for the global event in Australia. He hasn’t done anything wrong and was also ignored for the T20I series against Australia and South Africa. I would have gone for him and not Rishabh Pant,” said Kaneria.
He further suggested that Umran Malik should have been one of the standby players.
“India should have kept Umran Malik as one of the standby players as the Indian batters would have got to practice against a bowler, who bowls really quick.”
