Veteran Indian batsman, Gautam Gambhir has lauded young Indian wicketkeeper-batsman, Sanju Samson, after his fantastic performance against Chennai Super Kings on Tuesday in IPL 2020. Sanju Samson took CSK by storm and was in absolute carnage mode against the 3-time IPL champions. Samson set the foot on the accelerator from the first ball and smashed the CSK bowlers all around the park.
He is one of the contenders to become the next wicketkeeper-batsman representing Indian on the international stage. However, since MS Dhoni’s sabbatical after the 2019 world cup, the team has failed to find a competent replacement. Pant had been given numerous chances, but he failed miserably. But, his concussion in the first ODI against Australia made way for Rahul, and the Karnataka wicketkeeper-batsman has become a regular starter since then.
IPL 2020: Sanju Samson Is The Best Wicketkeeper-Batsman In India- Gautam Gambhir
On Tuesday, Gautam Gambhir took to Twitter and wrote, “Sanju Samson is not just the best wicketkeeper batsmen in India but the best young batsman in India! Anyone up for debate?”

Sanju Samson was in a breath-taking form as he took to the field for the first time this season for Rajasthan Royals. He smashed 74 runs off just 32 balls and bashed 9 sixes and a four in his stupendous inning. His performance has raised a lot of eyebrows and now he has posed as a solid contender to become India’s first-choice wicketkeeper-batsman.
