Shane Warne hails Sanju Samson as ‘special talent’

Sanju Samson is peerless when it comes to talent quotient and Shane Warne hopes the flamboyant Rajasthan Royals batsman has a consistent 2020 IPL and establishes himself across formats in the Indian team.

The clamor to have the enormously gifted Kerala batsman play regularly for the national team has grown over the years and knocks of 74 (32 balls) and 85 (42 balls) have only amplified the noise.

Warne, the IPL-winning former Royals captain and now a team mentor and brand ambassador believes the day is not far away.

”I hope Sanju has a consistent tournament this year. If he has a consistent tournament this year, I think you will see him representing India in all forms of the game,” said Warne.

The legendary Australian cricketer has been sold by Samson’s maturity and his evolution as a batsman, taking way more responsibility in this edition.

“He’s (Samson) such a talented player. I have seen a lot of talented cricketers in my time but watching Samson bat in the nets, being around him, speaking to him over the years and now watching him evolve, I mean he is something else.

“He is a very special talent and I hope he hits the international stage very soon,” said Warne, who is currently in the UAE.
