Undoubtedly, Sanju Samson is one of the most talented and astonishing cricketers of all time. He never fails to impress cricket fans with his flabbergasting performance.
However, we can’t deny that he barely gets a chance to showcase his talent on the field. Even though he has delivered some immensely exemplary performances, over the past few months he has not been in playing 11 of the Indian Cricket Team.
Back to the back exclusion of Sanju Samson and other talented players from the squad has made thousands of fans repeatedly criticize the Indian team management. Amid all this, recently an interesting revelation has grabbed the attention of the cricket fraternity. The Ireland Cricket Board offered Sanju Samson to join its team.
The Ireland Cricket Board offered an interesting deal to Indian cricketer Sanju Samson
In a recent event that happened in the cricket world, talented young player Sanju Samson was given an offer that not even a single person had anticipated. According to reports, the Ireland Cricket Board recently offered Samson not just a place in its team but also to be the captain of the team.
The Ireland cricket president said,
“We will let him play all the matches if he is in our national team. He is a very impressive batter and he is one of the rare talents. We provide him with an offer to play the matches from our national team. Our team required a skipper and batter like him. If the Indian team is overlooking him then he can join us, we respect him and make him play every match.”
The Ireland cricket board also gave assurance to Sanju that if he agrees to move to the country he would not be sidelined and will get to play in every game.
Here is how Sanju reacted to Ireland’s offer
Even though the offer sounds tempting and something that would further his cricketing career Sanju declined the offer politely. He replied to the Ireland cricket president’s offer and said,
“First of all, I want to thank Ireland’s cricket president for considering me for this role but I can’t accept his offer. I started my cricketing to play for the Indian national cricket team. I don’t want to play for any other nation or can’t even think to play for another nation. I can’t accept this offer and I want to say sorry to Ireland’s cricket president.”
He further stated,
“Although, I haven’t got plenty of chances in the Indian cricket team I will work hard and havself-beliefef, sometimes the combination of the team doesn’t allow your place in the playing XI but it doesn’t mean I am sad.”
The 28-year-old has not made his appearance on the field Since the three-match ODI series against South Africa. In that series, he showcased what he is capable of with his unbeaten 86 runs which made India get closer to a win in the first ODI.
We hope that he gets the opportunity to be part of India’s playing 11 and showcase his talent once again to the world.
