All the cricket lovers are in doubt whether the veteran wicket-keeper, Sanju Samson will be playing in the Indian playing eleven in the first T20I.

Although Team India won the game against the England County team held, on Sunday, Sanju Samson m=only managed to disappoint the fans. Sanju was caught in front of the wicket on the very first ball he faced. Sanju, who earlier scored his maiden international fifty in the second T20I against Ireland, scored 38 runs in the first warm-up match.
However, it is also crucial whether the Indian team management will trust Sanju Samson if he has only one chance against England. Meanwhile, another act of Sanju is getting applause from cricket lovers. During the match when the game was caused due to the rainstorms, the ground staff understood Sanju’s mind. A video of Samson helping the ground staff is already getting viral on social media.
Here is the video of Sanju Samson helping ground staff:
It wasn’t a perfect start to India’s batting innings as they were reeling at 8/3 in three overs leaving captain Karthik to walk in at an unlikely time in T20 innings. He started off well with a boundary in the final over of the powerplay as India was standing at 27 for three against the new ball. He then smashed Josh Cobb with a boundary through covers, smashed Alex Russell for a six, and got another boundary against Freddie Heldreich before falling to the latter in the 12th over.
Harshal Patel, who started off slow, did the rest for India. He also starred with the ball, scalping a couple of wickets for 23 runs in 3.3 overs as India restricted the hosts to 139. Yuzvendra Chahal, Avesh Khan, and Arshdeep Singh also scalped a couple of wickets each while Iyer and Yuzvendra Chahal picked on apiece.
