Why didn’t Sanju give Samson a chance? Ashish Nehra found the cause

India won the toss and elected to bowl As captain, Hardik Pandya was able to win the first toss. Umran Malik made his debut in the match.

However, the inclusion of Malayalee player Sanju Samson in the Indian line-up was met with strong protests. Sanju Samson was replaced by Deepak Hoodak. The star did not get a chance in the five-match South African series. Now, former Indian cricketer Ashish Nehra is saying why Sanju Samson was replaced by Deepak Hooda.

“No, this is not a difficult decision,” he said. Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant have been replaced by Sanju Samson and Rahul Tripathi. Deepak Hooda was already in the team and even Venkatesh Iyer did not play a single match against South Africa. In addition, Deepak Hooda’s performance in the IPL was one of the highlights for Rajasthan in the Ranji Trophy.
