Sanju Samson Shares A Cryptic Post On Instagram After Omission From Indian Team Ahead of ODI vs AUS

Sanju Samson has been ignored for the upcoming series against Australia. Sanju was the standby player in the Asia Cup 2023 as KL Rahul was not fit for the first two games. He was released from the squad after KL joined the team. 

If someone has been unlucky in Indian cricket in the last couple of years, then it's Sanju Samson and Yuzvendra Chahal. Having made his international debut in 2015, Sanju has been in and out of the team. 

Being in the reserves for the Asia Cup 2023, and now not even a part of the squad for the first two ODIs, in which the senior players are rested is a bit unfair for him. The former cricketers are slamming BCCI on their squad announcement as they were expecting Sanju to be a part of the Australia series. Despite doing anything wrong in the international games, Sanju Samson has been axed from the Indian team. 

However some believe that BCCI wanted to give some game time to the players who will be going for the Asian Games, and that's why they are included in the first two games. 

Here's the post Sanju Samson shared on Instagram:

In his post, Sanju wrote a caption which says, 'It is what it is, I choose to keep moving forward.' With the fan base Sanju Samson has, his fans are going crazy as it has been always like this with him. No one from the team backs him and despite some commendable performances, Sanju once again got axed from the team. 

Hossain, the most prominent name among the eight accused, played the last of his international matches for Bangladesh back in 2018. Having made his debut across all formats in 2011, the cricketer played 19 Tests, 65 ODIs and 31 T20I matches for his country until his final appearance in January 2018 in Mirpur.

Hossain has since become a prominent T20 freelancer for numerous franchise-based leagues across the world.
