Rajasthan Royals (RR) wicket-keeper batsman Sanju Samson on Tuesday said that ‘no one can play’ like former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and ‘no one should try it’.
The 25-year-old Samson’s ability to play big shots effortlessly led the team to thrilling wins against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in close matches. Rajasthan Royals (RR) succeeded in chasing a record target against the Punjab team.
After Samson’s blazing innings, Kerala Congress MP Shashi Tharoor called him the next Dhoni. Samson, however, dismissed the comparison saying, “I can say with confidence that no one can play like Dhoni, nor should anyone try to play like him.” Playing like MS Dhoni is not easy at all, so it should be left aside. I never think of playing like MS Dhoni. He is a veteran of Indian cricket and of this game. ‘
Samson said, “I just focus on my game, what can I do, how can I do it best and how can I win a match.”
Former cricketer Gautam Gambhir also agreed with this Kerala batsman. Gambhir said that this player should focus on becoming Sanju Samson of Indian cricket instead of becoming the next Dhoni. Samson strengthened his claim for a place in the Indian team by playing 74 and 85 runs.
Asked if he felt he had done enough to get the attention of the national selectors, Samson said, “Maybe yes, maybe no.” I think I know that I am in a good rhythm, my only dream is to win the match for my team. Right now my focus is on IPL.
