In the series against Sri Lanka (India vs Sri Lanka), wicket-keeper Sanju Samson, who struggles with the bat, seems to be failing from behind the pitch.
Colombo, July 28: Wicketkeeper Sanju Samson, who struggled with the bat in the series against Sri Lanka, seems to be failing on the pitch as well. In the second T20 (India vs Sri Lanka) against Sri Lanka, India captain Shikhar Dhawan made a big mistake by listening to Sanju Samson. After listening to Sanju Samson, Shikhar Dhawan did not take DRS, but later in the replay, it was concluded that Team India made a big mistake.
In the second ball of the eighth over, Kuldeep Yadav’s ball hit Sri Lanka’s captain Dasun Shanaka’s pad, after which Team India appealed. Kuldeep Yadav urged Shikhar Dhawan to take DRS. Dhawan then asked wicketkeeper Sanju Samson about the DRS, but he refused and Dhawan did not take the DRS. In the replay, Shanaka was out and Kuldeep Yadav shook his head.
Dasun Shanaka, who was once a life saver, could not put up a big score. After this, Kuldeep dismissed him in the next over. On Kuldeep’s bowling, Shanaka came forward and tried to hit a shot, but his bat did not hit the ball, in the end it was Sanju Samson who stumped him. Shanaka was dismissed for 3 off 6 balls.
In DRS, the captain often decides on the advice of the wicket-keeper, as the wicket-keeper’s position is considered the best to see if the opposing team’s batsman is out. Often the advice given by the wicket keeper is correct. When MS Dhoni was in Team India, he did not want to miss his DRS decisions, so DRS was often referred to as Dhoni Review System.
