Danish Kaneria Raised The Questions For Including These Two Players In Team India

Indian wicket-keeper batter Sanju Sanson is not utilizing the opportunities he is getting. In the recently concluded T20I series against West Indies, the batter was not upto the mark and he did not impress much with his batting. Now former Pakistani bowler, Danish Kaneria has also criticised the batter for his casual approach.

Although Sanju Samson showed promise with a notable 51-run inning in the third ODI against West Indies, his performance dropped significantly in the T20I series where he got only 32 runs across three innings.

“Sorry to say, but you had enough chances in this series, but you weren’t able to deliver. This is his own fault. The selectors or anyone else shouldn’t be blamed, it was completely his fault. Sanju Samson should blame himself if he remains out of the team for a long time now,” Kaneria remarked on his YouTube channel.

Apart from Sanju Samson, Kaneria also raised questions on the strategy of the Indian Cricket Team. He highlighted some key areas of improvement which also involves the inclusion of Mukesh Kumar.

“With Hardik Pandya there, you cannot play Mukesh Kumar, as both of them have a similar pace. Umran Malik bowls very fast, but is wayward. Wouldn’t it have been better if India tried out Umran by playing him in all matches in this series? It would have increased his confidence.”

Recently, Mukesh Kumar achieved a historic feat by making his debut in all three formats during the same tour, establishing his name as the second Indian player to do so. Kaneria suggested that management could have invested their time in nurturing the potential of Umran Malik whose raw pace could be a valuable asset with appropriate mentorship.
