Sanu Samon failed to perform in the 1st T20 match owing the fans a deserved return to the playing XI.
Team India were struggling with two critical dismissals and Sanju Samson’s wicket has just added up skipper Pandya’s responsibility to play a captain’s innings along with Ishan Kishan, who is currently carrying the innings from one end.
How did Sanju Samson got out?
Sanju Samson is caught by Madushanka while attempting a leg-side hoick off a delivery from Dhananjaya. This marks another disappointment for Samson, who had made an error in an earlier over and did not learn from it. He is known for attacking offspinners and targeting the mid-wicket pocket, but he made a mistake twice in this match. He walks back with his head down.
Earlier in the game, Gill’s poor shot selection proved costly for India as it resulted in an early wicket and a poor start in the T20I format for the debutant. Gill was unfortunate to depart early on his debut, and fans had hoped for a strong partnership with Ishan Kishan.
Along with Gill, Suryakumar Yadav got out because of his shot selection but with Ishan Kishan carrying the responsibilities from one end, the Wankhede crowd can still expect a tough total for Sri Lanka.
