Speaking ahead of the first India vs South Africa T20I, as per the quotes in Hindustan Times, Sourav Ganguly said, “Sanju is playing well. He played for India but just missed the World Cup. He is in the Indian team’s plans. He is now a part of the ODI team against SA. Also he has done well in the IPL franchise and he is the Captain also.”

Speaking after the match, captain Rohit Sharma said, “The wicket was tricky. You learn a lot playing such a game. You understand what the team needs to do in tough conditions. It was nice to play a game like that. We knew the bowlers would get something seeing grass on the pitch, but we didn’t expect help for the full 20 overs. It was still damp.”

He further added, “Both teams were in the contest and the team that played better won the game. We started well, got 5 wickets in quick time and that was the turning point. We knew it wasn’t going to be easy. Got to respect the conditions. Lost two wickets and that partnership between KL and Surya got us home.”

The ODI series vs South Africa is scheduled to begin on October 6 in Lucknow, and Samson will be aiming to put in an entertaining show.
