The main aim for the non-regulars in the Indian squad has always been to make use of the best opportunity that they get. Sanju Samson was presented with such a golden opportunity that he failed to utilize. The wicket-keeper batter managed a mere 15-run knock from just 11 deliveries.

While his competitor for the spot, Deepak Hooda blasted a 25-ball 38, Samson returned back to the pavilion disappointed with his performance. Samson managed 2 boundaries and scored the rest of the runs in slow singles. While others have managed to score big shots evenly, Samson on the other hand has struggled consistently.

What is even more surprising is his dismissal. Samson attempted to play an absolute weird shot that unfortunately was his dismissal. Samson misjudged the pace of a waist-length delivery from Odean Smith and decided to play it late. However, the ball went much faster as it rocks the stumps and the off stump goes cartwheeling on the ground.

With the squad announcement for the much anticipated Asia Cup scheduled to take place in the next couple of days, Samson will have only himself to blame for not getting selected with his inconsistent performances.
