Rajasthan Royals’ (RR) batsman Sanju Samson has been receiving a lot of plaudits over the course of the last two weeks thanks to his belligerent performances in the ongoing Indian Premier League 2020. Samson’s performances in his side’s first two matches have helped RR win both matches and going top of the table undefeated.
Samson first made waves in the Indian domestic circuit in 2013. His performances in the IPL earned him call-ups to the national side but he wasn’t able to perform to the standards he had set. But his performances this year, seem to have put his career on track again. Samson is now being talked about as the one to succeed MS Dhoni as India’s wicketkeeper.
Give your everything for 10 years – Virat Kohli to Sanju Samson
Speaking about his cricketing career and for how long he thinks he will play, Sanju Samson said, “I think I can’t play cricket after 10-12 years. I am very lucky to be a part of Rajasthan Royals and some very good individuals, good human beings around me. I am a bit deep person and I keep on thinking about my future, also about my life, because everyone will die one day“
The 25-year-old then revealed a conversation he had with Indian captain Virat Kohli during the tour of New Zealand earlier this year. “When I was in gym with the Indian team, I met Virat bhai, I keep on asking him different things. When he asked me how many years you are going to be play and I said 10, he told me that me ‘then give everything to these 10 years and you can have your favorite food from Kerala after that’. So I became really dedicated to give my best for the next 10-12 years” the Kerala batsman said.
