The wicketkeeper-batsman Sanju Samson on 5th ODI against South Africa A hit 91 runs in 48 balls and became the player of the match. His magnificent performance is being praised by everyone. Veteran Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh praised the player through twitter and said he deserved the place of No.4 in the ODI.
Gautam Gambhir in a sarcastic way replied to Harbajan Singh and said that Sanju Samson is a marvellous batsman and he can also bat in South pole of the moon and appreciated his batting technique and named him as a southern star.
Also, he wonders that If Vikram ( Chandrayaan 2) can carry this masterpiece (Sanju Samson) to space for batting in the South Pole of the moon.
“Yes @harbajan3 on current form and his skills this Southern Star, @imsanjusamson can bat even on Moon’s the South Pole!!! I wonder if they had space on Vikram to carry this marvel of a batsman. Well done Sanju on scoring 91 off 48 balls against South Africa A side,” Gambhir posted on the Instagram.

Can Sanju Samson make a place for No. 4??
The finding of No.4 in Indian national cricket team is still on as the senior players are recommending whom to choose. Rishabh Pant has shown poor performance at No.4 in ODI but still is being given chances. He has shown good wicket-keeping abilities. There are more choices for India if we talk about wicketkeeper-batsman like Ishan Kishan And Sanju Samson. Both of the young players are waiting to join the senior team.
