Congress MP Shashi Tharoor Praises Samson
On Sunday, Sanju Samson played brilliantly against Kings XI Punjab at Sharjah stadium in the UAE. Samson scored 85 from just 42 balls, and with this performance, he again proves why he deserves a place in team India. He helped Rajasthan Royals to chase the massive target of 224 runs against KXIP. Probably, the run is the highest-ever in the history of IPL.
Samson scored a total of 159 runs in the last two matches in this season of IPL 2020. Against Chennai Super Kings, he scored 74 whereas against Punjab Samson contributed 85 runs for Rajasthan Royals. He became the Player of the Match in both the matches of the season with half-centuries in both of it.
After Samson’s excellent performance in the match, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor praised him. The Congress MP has also been a vocal supporter of the Kerala cricketer.
The Congress MP wrote on Twitter, “What an absolutely incredible win for @rajasthanroyals! I’ve known @iamSanjuSamson for a decade & told him when he was 14 that he would one day be the next MS Dhoni. Well, that day is here. After his two amazing innings in this IPL, you know a world class player has arrived.”
But, former India opener Gautam Gambhir disagrees with Shashi Tharoor. And, Gautam also replies to the tweet.
Gautam Gambhir said: “Sanju Samson doesn’t need to be next to anyone. He will be ‘the’ Sanju Samson of Indian Cricket.”
