Sanju Samson is one of the most technically sound batsmen among his peers and this quality, along with the fact that he can keep wickets, brought him to fame at an early. His brilliant performances in junior level got him a place in India’s Under-19 team for the Asia Cup 2012. Unexpectedly, he failed to perform and was thus left out of the squad for the upcoming Under-19 World Cup.
Samson bounced back soon, making his First-Class debut for Kerala soon. He had an impressive season which commenced with a century. This helped him get a break in IPL 2013. Under the supervision of Rahul Dravid, Samson became a consistent performer for Rajasthan Royals in that season and the one following. As a reward, he accompanied Indian team to Zimbabwe, making his T20I debut. Samson continues to be a big name in domestic circuit. His power-packed performance in the Ranji Trophy 2017-18 guided Kerala to their first qualifiers.
