Sanju Samson thinks he has improved over the last several years to the point where no one would describe him as a one-dimensional cricket player.
The spry Kerala keeper-batter missed out on the T20 World Cup ticket but realises that with the calibre of cricket being produced in India on a daily basis, making the elite 15 of the national side is more difficult than ever.
“I’ve spent years perfecting my ability to take on various roles. I know I can bat anywhere in the order.”
You shouldn’t mark a place just for you. You cannot declare to others that you are an opener or a finisher. Playing in different roles and positions (in the order) over the past three to four years has given my game a new perspective.
The 27-year-old, who has participated in 7 ODIs and 16 T20Is to date, claimed it is difficult to get into the Indian team since there is so much competition.
