“Pant has done well at No. 4, so it is important to back him,” says @VVSLaxman281. He’s a good player out of form who’s failed in ten of his last 11 innings; Samson averages 66 in ODIs, has made runs in all his last five matches & is on the bench. Go figure. @IamSanjuSamson,”


So far, Sanju Samson has played 11 ODIs and in which he has scored 330 runs at an average of 66 with his highest score being 86 not out.

India’s captain for the ODI series, Shikhar Dhawan stated the reason for the change, saying,

“We wanted the sixth bowler to come in, so Sanju Samson missed out and Hooda came in.”

The 2nd ODI match between India and New Zealand was abandoned due to rain. India was 89 for 1 in 12.5 overs when rain interrupted the play.
