Only One Cricketer Attends Sanju Samson’s Wedding
Kerala star Sanju Samson, on Saturday, tied the knots with his college-mate and longtime girlfriend Charulatha in Thiruvananthapuram. It was a low-key affair as the lovebirds got married in a low-key affair in Kovalam, a small town away from the capital.
Samson later revealed that only 30 people had attended the ‘simple function as he expressed his delight.
“There were just 30 of us from both the families and it was a very simple function,” Samson told IANS. “We are very happy that we have got the blessings of both the families.”
Samson’s cricketing career, meanwhile, has not turned out as expected so far. Not very long ago, he was one of the most sought after youngsters in the country. The right-handed batsman was the youngest player to score a half-century in the IPL and Champions League Twenty20. He was selected as the “Best Young Player of the Season” in the 2013 IPL through an official poll. Those exploits had helped him make his Twenty20 International debut for India against Zimbabwe in the year 2015.
However, that was the only game he has played for India so far.
An impressive show in this year’s Indian Premier League helped him get a call for the India A team for the tour of England. However, he was dropped following a failed yo-yo test. He did make a comeback to the side after clearing the Test and featured in the India A side for the quadrangular series between against India B, Australia A, and South Africa A played in Bengaluru.
Meanwhile, several high profile personalities had attended Samson’s wedding. However, unlike the recent weddings of some cricketers, the function was not attended by too many players. In fact, only one personality related with the game – former India skipper Rahul Dravid attended the game. Dravid and Samson have worked together for quite some time now. Dravid has coached Samson in IPL as well as for India A.
