Team India is currently taking on South Africa for a 3-match T20I series and after this both the teams will fight each other in a 3-match ODI series starting on October 6th.
The ODI team will be completely different from what the squad is for the T20 series against Proteas. The ODI side will be led by veteran left-handed Indian batter Shikhar Dhawan along with the bunch of youngsters.
The young Indian wicketkeeper Sanju Samson is not part of the T20 World Cup squad, also not there for the T20 series against South Africa. However, according to a latest video clip featuring Sourav Ganguly, the BCCI head did admit that Samson will be the part of Team India for the 3-match ODI series. The squad for the ODI series will be announced later this week.
In a meeting with reporters, Ganguly said,”He [Samson] is playing well. He is there, and he played for India. He just missed the World Cup. I’m sure he will be in the thick of things. I think he is playing the One-Days against South Africa also. He is around. He does well for his franchise in the IPL [Rajasthan Royals]. He is the captain. He has done very well for himself.”
Ganguly further added,”I believe he is from Trivandrum. You [Trivandrum] have a lot of good players. Rohan Kunnummal got three centuries during the last Ranji Trophy. There’s a lot of talent in this part. Basil Thampi is also from here. So, a lot of talents in Kerala. It is no more a football-only state.”
