The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) unveiled Team India’s roster for the imminent T20 World Cup 2024 on Tuesday. Among the significant revelations was the naming of star batter Sanju Samson. Recognized for his outstanding form and exemplary leadership in the current Indian Premier League (IPL) season, the Rajasthan Royals (RR) skipper secured his spot in the squad.

Recognition of outstanding performance

Under Samson’s captaincy, RR has dominated the IPL 2024, securing 8 wins out of 9 matches and claiming the top spot in the points table. His consistent performances with the bat, scoring 385 runs from 9 matches at a strike rate of 161, have earned him a well-deserved spot in the national squad.

Overcoming competition

Despite stiff competition from seasoned players like KL Rahul, Dinesh Karthik, Ishan Kishan, and Jitesh Sharma, Samson’s consistent displays throughout the IPL season have catapulted him into the limelight. His selection reflects the selectors’ confidence in his abilities to deliver on the global stage.

A long-awaited break

Samson’s omission from previous major tournaments, including the T20 World Cup 2022 and the ODI World Cup 2023, had sparked debates among fans and pundits alike. However, with his inclusion in the T20 World Cup 2024 squad, the BCCI has finally granted him the opportunity he deserves, much to the delight of cricket fans across the nation.
