Former India cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has cast doubts on Rajasthan Royals skipper Sanju Samson, saying that he could waste the god-given talent. Samson once again failed to showcase his talent getting out for only four runs.

Since his Indian Premier League debut in 2013, Sanju Samson has been touted as the next big thing in Indian cricket. However, he struggled for consistency and has crossed the 400-run mark in only one IPL season.

In the wake of it, Sunil Gavaskar has raised concerns over Samson’s temperament. Speaking to Star Sports, Gavaskar said:

“What has led him down is the shot selection. Even at the international level, he doesn’t open the batting there. He was the second or the third wicket down. And he looks to hit the first ball out of the ground. That is impossible. That is absolutely impossible even if you’ve been in the richest vein of form. You have got to maybe knock it around for maybe twos and threes and get the feet moving and then look to play.”

“That is something he is going to watch out for. Because otherwise, it is going to be a waste of such God-given talent. I have always said that a lot of shot selection boils down to temperament. That is what separates the men from the boys. And therefore, for him to go on and be a regular player for India, his shot selection has to be that much better,” added Gavaskar.
