Yesterday cricbuzz prediction: The Team India star has doubts about his second T20I as Hardik Pandya and co-players struggle with renewed injury fears ahead of the Pune match

Team India suffered a heavy blow ahead of Wednesday’s series decider against Sri Lanka. Team India, led by Hardik Pandya, will face Sri Lanka in the second T20I on Thursday at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium.

Team India looks to be taking a serious hit ahead of Wednesday’s series decider against Sri Lanka. India’s wicket-keeper bat, Sanju Samson, was reportedly left behind in Mumbai after suffering a minor jab in his T20I series of his three matches against Sri Lanka and hosts India. Samson had a forgetful day in the office as India played Sri Lanka in his game at the opening of Hardik’s Pandia series at his stadium in Wankhede on Tuesday. Wicket-keeper bat Samson failed to score for Team India’s Willows, while the cricket ace also dropped a catch for Sri Lanka’s opener Pathum Nissanka in a low-point thriller between Asian giants. The Rajasthan Royals (RR) skipper Dasun knocked forgetful 6 to 5 in his T20I in the first against his Shanaka team. According to the latest developments, Samson is a doubtful starter for Thursday’s series-decisive match between India and Sri Lanka.

According to a report filed by Cricbuzz, Samson did not travel to Pune with the Pandia-led side for his second T20I against Sri Lanka. Samson picked up a wobble in his knee after trying to catch the Sri Lankan hitter in the opening at Wankhede. Samson was reportedly advised to seek medical attention after suffering from swelling, but the star player remained on the field after the incident.

Earlier, Samson was called up by legendary slugger Sunil his Gavaskar after a mediocre shot against Sri Lanka in his T20I in his first against Sri Lanka. Samson struggled in the series opener after he made five deliveries. However, Samson’s decision to attack Dhananjaya de Silva backfired when a wicketkeeper batsman was cheaply eliminated on a power play.

“And this time Reed is the third man. he is a very good player Sanju Samson has a very good talent, but his shot choices sometimes let him down. And this is yet another opportunity and a disappointment,” Gavaskar said on broadcast as his India side, led by Pandya, will face Sri Lanka in the second T20I at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium on Thursday.
