Rajasthan Royals middle-order batsman Sanju Samson has been in a stellar form so far in the starting games of the eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The Royals registered a remarkable victory against the Royal Challengers Bangalore by 19 runs, courtesy a swashbuckling knock played by Samson in which he scored an unbeaten 92 runs off 45 balls to guide his to a massive first innings total.

He powered 10 monstrous sixes during that knock and played some splendid and outstanding strokes that were appreciated by the spectators and the world, who watched the youngster strike the ball so well.


I don’t believe in thinking about the future or the things happened in the past: Samson

Samson made his international debut in the T20I series against Zimbabwe in 2015, in which he got a chance to feature in the national side in a single T20 game. He scored 19 runs and then suddenly his name vanished away from the reckoning. During a recent conversation, the wicket-keeper batsman revealed that he is not thinking at all presently about his comeback in the Indian team. Samson also mentioned that he is a great believer of the thought that things will happen automatically, which is why the youngster never worries about the future nor the past.

“I don’t see myself making a return to any team. I don’t want to see the future nor my past. All those things are not in your control. When I got selected in 2015 I never thought that I was going to be picked. Things automatically happen, you never draw a line to your goal, that’s what I figured out from my experience. I don’t want to see myself reaching there, it will automatically happen if it has to happen,” said Samson as quoted by the Hindustan Times.

Samson is working hard on his fitness skills and on-field performance

The 23-year old mentioned that it is very important for every cricketer to keep improving their fitness skills and the cricketing performance, as these are the only areas which lie in an individual’s control. He has also been a consistent performer for his state Kerala team in the recent domestic competitions.

“But the main thing which is in my control is to improve my fitness, game, cricketing skills and performance. Opportunities are always there. If you are not playing for India then it is Kerala. The domestic season is so big, plus you have the IPL, India A tours. I am not worried about selections,” further added the wicket-keeper batsman.
