Achi News Updates,

CHENNAI: Sanju Samson believes that the last few years have prepared him so that no one would call him a one-dimensional cricketer.

The Kerala keeper-batsman missed out on a T20 World Cup ticket but understands that breaking into the elite 15 of the national team is more challenging than ever with the quality of Indian cricket stumbling day by day.

“Playing different roles is something I have worked on for years. I am confident of batting anywhere in the order,” he said.

Samson believes that to be successful, one must be flexible.

“You should not fix a place for yourself. You can’t tell people, ‘I’m a starter or I’m a finisher’. In the last three-four years, playing in different roles and positions (in the order) has added a new dimension to my game,” he added.

The 27-year-old, who has played 7 ODIs and 16 T20Is so far, said that getting into the Indian team is challenging and there is a lot of competition.

“It’s really challenging. It’s very challenging to get into the Indian team. There’s a lot of competition even among the players who are in the team now. When these things happen, it’s important to focus on me,” Samson replied to a question.

“I am happy with the way I am performing. I want to improve…,” he added.

Samson leads India A in three List A matches against New Zealand A starting Thursday in Chennai.

“The quality of cricketers in our squad is unbelievable. So, it really helps every person to raise their status. We challenge ourselves. We try to do better every time we get a chance,” said Samson.

The A series always keeps fringe players on the selection radar and Samson is happy to lead the National A team.

“They (India A games) are very important. There is not much difference between A game and international game. The competition is almost the same. So it’s important to seize opportunities.”
