Australian Spin legend Shane Warne on Saturday says he’s “surprise” that wk-batsman Sanju Samson is not playing for Team India across formats.

Samson smashed a 32-ball 74 against Chennai Super Kings to power Rajasthan Royals to a 16-run win in the Dream11 IPL2020 on Tuesday.

Warne praised the 25-year-old player after his exploits.

“Sanju Samson, what a player he is. I have said for a long time and I think Sanju Samson is probably one of the most exciting players I have seen for a long time. I am surprised that he is not playing all forms of cricket for India,” said Warne in an Instagram live session of Rajasthan Royals.

The Australian legend added, “He is that good. He is an absolute champion he is got all the shots, quality, and class.

“So, hopefully, he has a consistent year and helps Rajasthan Royals lift the IPL trophy and I hope to see in him Indian colors in all three forms of cricket.”
