The Rajasthan Royals’ wicketkeeper-batsman Sanju Samson is going through the form of his life. He has started off very well with the bat for the Royals in this year’s IPL. In their opening match against the Chennai Super Kings scored 74 runs off 32 balls to guide his team past the 200 runs scored. CSK could not achieve the target and Sanju Samson won the Man Of The Match award.
Samson yet again delivered for the Rajasthan Royals in the second match against the Kings XI Punjab. They chased the total of 224 runs dramatically. Samson scored 85 runs off 42 balls and Royals ultimately secured a dramatic win.
Many fans started to compare him with MS Dhoni courtesy of his brilliant performances in the first two matches. Many fans want Samson to replace MS Dhoni in Team India after Dhoni has announced his retirement from international cricket.
Sanju Samson is focussing on performing well in the IPL.
Congress MP from Kerala’s Thiruvananthapuram tagged the Kerala Boy as the next MS Dhoni. However, Sanju Samson like Gautam Gambhir refused to draw his comparison with MS Dhoni.
“I am sure that no one can and no one should try to play like him. It’s not at all easy to play like MS Dhoni, so leave that aside. I never think of playing like MS Dhoni. He is a legend of Indian cricket, a legend of the game,” Samson said. “I only focus on my game, what I can do, how I can do it best and how I can win matches,” the Keralite added.

Sanju Samson said that he is just focussing on performing well in the IPL, without turning his attention to attract the national selectors. He said, “I maybe, I maybe not. The only thing I know is I am in good form, my only dream is to win matches for my team, any team I play. My focus is on the IPL right now.”
He also revealed how his Gym interaction with Virat Kohli has changed his perspective about his career and objectives.
“When I was in the gym with the Indian team I met Virat bhai, I keep on asking him different things. When he asked me how many years you are going to play and I said 10, he told me that me ”then give everything to these 10 years and you can have your favourite food from Kerala after that. So, I became really dedicated to giving my best for the next 10-12 years,” said the RR star.
