Real cricbuzz prediction: Sanju Samson shares a three word message after being banned in the T20I series India vs Sri Lanka. Hardik, Dhawan respond

Sanju Samson withdrew from Wednesday’s T20I series against Sri Lanka with a knee injury.

Team his Indian star Sanju Samson has been ruled out of his ongoing T20I series against Sri Lanka after injuring his left knee in the first match of the series in Mumbai. Samson, who returned to the team after missing his ODI series against Bangladesh last month, was sacked on Tuesday after being hit badly with a racket on Tuesday. He was replaced by uncapped Jitesh his Sharma, who produced many important games for the Punjab Kings in the 2022 Indian Premier League his season.

“Samson injured his left knee trying to play the ball near the boundary ropes in the first T20I,” said a BCCI press release on Wednesday, confirming his absence for the remainder of the series. He was taken to Mumbai by the BCCI medical team for expert opinion and was advised rest and rehabilitation.”

On Thursday, Samsung took to his official Instagram profile to respond to the development. Posting his picture from the first T20I, Samson wrote, “All is well.”

While India’s captain for the series – Hardik Pandya – posted a heart emoji on the post, veteran opener Shikhar Dhawan wished Samson a quick recovery from the injury.

Samson has played in 11 ODI and 17 T20I matches for India so far; however, his appearances have remained scattered throughout the cricketing calendar. The wicketkeeper-batter made his T20I debut in 2015 but received a more consistent rope only from 2020, when he appeared in two matches against New Zealand and three against Australia.

In 2022, Samson played in all three T20Is of the series against Sri Lanka in February but wasn’t named in the five-match series against South Africa in June, that marked the return of the Indian team to cricketing action after the Indian Premier League. In England the next month, Samson was named in the squad for the first T20I but didn’t find a place in the second and third. The Kerala-born batsman ultimately missed out on a spot in the T20 World Cup team, with Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant becoming India’s first and second choice wicket keepers respectively.
