India need to look at Sanju Samson: Wasim Jaffer after Suryakumar Yadav’s golden duck streak

CricketIndia need to look at Sanju Samson: Wasim Jaffer after Suryakumar Yadav's golden duck streak

Srinagar: Former India opener Wasim Jaffer has said that India should look beyond Suryakumar Yadav and take a loom at Sanju Samson after No.1 T20 batters triple golden duck streak in the recent ODI series against Australia.

Suryakumar has made a big name for himself in the T20I format but in ODI he has scored only 433 runs in 23 ODIs at an average of 24.05.

“I would probably sympathise with him. It doesn’t happen with probably a number eleven batter. It’s one of those things that you get out for a golden duck three times in a row. It probably would never happen to him again, hopefully. It’s just a bad luck to him. But I think India need to look somewhere else,” said Wasim Jaffer on ESPNCricinfo.

“Even though he is a quality player, he would come out pretty good as the IPL will start and he will be in his element. But India needs to look at Sanju Samson or somewhere else and still stick with Surya because he is a quality player”.

 “If he comes good, we all know he is a quality player and so you just don’t need to keep him aside. If IPL goes well, we will be tempted to play him again but India need to look at Sanju Samson as well,” said Jaffer.
