Sanju Samson is not selected for the New Zealand cricket series which irked the fans. The BCCI selectors have announced the 16 member team for India tour of New Zealand that starts from January 24. India and NZ will start with 5 T20 matches, 3 One day matches and 2 test cricket matches.
Rohit Sharma and Mohammed Shami are back in the team after much needed rest. Shikhar Dhawan is also back in the team. All these inclusions cost Sanju Samson his berth. He played in the last series against Sri Lanka where he got to play only 2 balls after 5 years and now dropping him from the New Zealand series did not go well with the fans. They slammed the selection team brutally on social media.
Virat Kohli and the selection team are blamed for removing Sanju Samson from the team. Here are some comments made by the fans on twitter in support of Samson.
