“He Will Be The First Sanju Samson, Don’t Compare” – Prominent Indian Cricketers


Sanju Samson has been impressing the fans and selectors big time in this ongoing IPL tournament. With two back to back terrific performances, the Kerala based cricketer looks promising and is expected to grab a place in the national side as Dhoni announced retirement from all forms of cricket recently. He scored a quickfire 74 against CSK and his 85 from 42 balls against Punjab helped his team to chase a mammoth 223.


So far, Rishabh Pant, KL Rahul are considered as the replacement for Dhoni. Now, on seeing the consistency of Samson, Politician Sashi Tharor posted a tweet comparing him with Mahendra Singh Dhoni. “What an absolutely incredible win for Rajasthan Royals ! I’ve known Sanju Samson 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.” he wrote in his tweet.

Few others believed the same and expressed it through their tweets.


However, Gautam Gambhir who played with Dhoni for years, came up with a denial saying that Sanju Samson will be “The” Sanju Samson and doesn’t need to be next to anyone. “Sanju Samson doesn’t need to be next anyone. He will be ‘the’ Sanju Samson of Indian Cricket.” Gambhir said in his tweet.

Banned cricketer Sreesanth came up with a similar statement. He requested Sashi not to compare him with anyone. “he is gonna break a lot of records too and win many more world cups for our country. So pls don’t compare him to anyone ..he is an amazing Malayali from our Gods own country . His best is yet to come” his tweet read.
