Sanju Samson, who was in the KCA dock from the past two months, can now rest easy as the Kerala wicket-keeper batsman has been let off but with a stern warning.
Samson was under scanner as last year he reportedly went missing from the dressing room during the Ranji game against Tripura. He returned to the team hotel mid-night, uninformed. At that time, reports further added that he even broke the furniture to show his disappointment.
But soon Sanju sent an e-mail to KCA President TC Mathew tendering an apology for his act. The Board showed signs of dealing with the matter with care and indicated that they might let him go with a warning. Finally, the KCA issued a verdict that Sanju has been let off after a stern warning issued against him.
In addition to that, the board has also asked Samson’s father not to accompany his son to the matches and practice sessions. Samson’s father allegedly exchanged words with KCA President TC Mathew.
Samson was the part of the India A squad for the first practice game against England at Cricket Club of India. He was bowled for a duck off David Willey on the first ball he faced.
Samson, who had a poor Ranji Trophy season, would be itching to strike some form in the Vijay Hazare Trophy which starts from February 25. It would also be an opportunity for him to prepare well for the upcoming season of Indian Premier League (IPL).
