Sanju Samson Badly trolled On Social Media for Another Flop Show vs West Indies, take a look at Twitter Posts
Sanju Samson was expected to deliver big when Hardik Pandya's Team India faced the West Indies in the fifth and final T20I of the series on Sunday.
Samson, who is competing with Ishan Kishan and Tilak Verma for a spot in India's batting order for the World Cup, was extensively mocked on social media following his poor performance against the West Indies.
After left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein started a batting collapse, Romario Shepherd took 4-31 as Tema India's second-string side recorded a below-par score in the series finale on Sunday.
Samson, who has been keeping wickets for Team India since the third T20I, displayed yet another batting failure against the Caribbean Men.
The wicketkeeper-batter was out for 13 off 9 balls, capping up a disappointing away tour for India. Angry by Samson's batting performance against the West Indies in the T20I series, numerous supporters resorted to Twitter to express their disappointment. Samson, who averaged 10.67 in the five-game series, only managed 32 runs in three innings.
Samson completes 6,000 runs in T20s
Interestingly, despite failing with the willow against the West Indies, Samson accomplished something exceptional in the fifth T20I.
By completing 6,000 runs in T20 cricket, the Rajasthan Royals (RR) captain joined the ranks of MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, and Rohit Sharma. Since his debut against Zimbabwe in 2015, the 28-year-old has appeared in 21 Twenty20 Internationals for India.
While Samson had a forgettable day at work, Indian vice-captain Suryakumar Yadav boosted his selection chances with a blazing knock against the West Indies. The Indian team's No. 3 batter batted quickly, scoring 61 off 45 balls.
Suryakumar's blazing knock helped India reach 165-9 in 20 overs. Suryakumar's batting heroics, however, were not enough to save India in the series finale.
West Indies opener Brandon King remained unbeaten on 85 (55), while ex-skipper Nicholas Pooran contributed an entertaining 47-run knock to help the hosts complete the run chase in just 18 overs.
The West Indies also won the five-match series 3-2 at Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground with the victory.
