In addition to his batting, wicket-keeper batsman Sanju Samson is well-known for the straightforward and honest manner in which he conducts himself. Samson’s supporters have been won over by his unassuming demeanour on multiple occasions, whether it be on or off the field. His followers love him for his kindness.
Samson’s thoughtful action toward the groundsmen at the Seddon Park, Hamilton, captured everyone’s attention in a video that is currently going viral on social media. The video was taken during the abandoned second one-day international match between India and New Zealand.
Samson came to the staff’s rescue when they were having trouble keeping the ground covers under control due to the strong wind that was blowing at the location of the match. He did this by offering a helping hand to the staff.
Samson, who had been selected to play for India in the first one-day international match against New Zealand, was replaced by Deepak Hooda for the second match, which took place in Hamilton. Because Samson had scored a 38-ball 36 in the previous game, the decision to bench him caused some people to raise their eyebrows.
Shikhar Dhawan, the captain of India, explained the reasoning behind the substitution after the second one-day international match was called off due to rain. He stated, “We needed the sixth bowler to come in, thus Sanju Samson missed out and Hooda came in.”
Rain prevented the second One-Day International (ODI) match between India and New Zealand from taking place. Rain forced the abandonment of the game after it had already been played for 12.5 overs and India had reached 89 for 1 in their innings.
The rain had earlier forced the contest to be shortened to 29 overs each side, but the subsequent halt caused the game to be abandoned without a winner being declared. Kane Williamson, the captain of New Zealand, won the toss and decided his team would bowl first against India in the game.
On Wednesday, in Christchurch, the third and final one-day international match between India and New Zealand will take place. At this point in the series, New Zealand had a 1-0 advantage.
