The internet is on fire as a result of a post starring Sanju Samson that went viral on the BCCI website. It has to do with the lineup for India's five-match T20I series against the West Indies, which gets underway tonight in Trinidad. Surprisingly, the post lists Samson's name among India's 18-person team.

The internet is on fire as a result of a post starring Sanju Samson that went viral on the BCCI website. It has to do with the lineup for India's five-match T20I series against the West Indies, which gets underway tonight in Trinidad. Surprisingly, the post lists Samson's name among India's 18-person team. Samson was originally, and is still currently, not included in India's T20I setup for the series against the West Indies and was just included in the ODI squad, which is why this development has everyone perplexed.


Another intriguing aspect of this is that KL Rahul, who contracted Covid-19 and was anticipated to be out, is not listed in India's team on the BCCI website. The BCCI has not yet made an official announcement about Rahul's participation in the series. There has been no official word from the board on Rahul's health, but if he is ruled out, it is expected that a substitute would be appointed, and it's highly plausible that Samson will be that replacement.

Samson has played 14 T20 Internationals for India since his debut in 2015, compiling 251 runs from 13 innings at an average of 19.30. In the second T20I between India and Ireland earlier this month, he recently achieved his only half-century in the format. Deepak Hooda's century and Samson's 77 off 42 balls both contributed significantly to India's narrow 4-run victory.


Samson maintained his success in the West Indies ODI series, scoring a superb 54 in the second game of the series, which India won to gain a commanding lead over the visitors. It was his first fifty in the format. Samson's selection as Rahul's replacement, if it happens—official confirmation has not yet been received—promises to be a wise move ahead of the T20Is.
