Will Sanju Samson Finally make it big?

It almost pains one to watch Sanju Samson bat in IPL and during his hundred against SRH he would have left many of the viewers with the same feeling. Why the pain you ask? Because he’s that bloody good that while he was batting it didn’t even feel like he was making an effort. The 24 run over against Bhuvaneshwar Kumar was not brutality but class and what irks everyone who watches Sanju Samson bat and is his fan is the number of failures he endures between these amazing knocks.

Every year Sanju Samson comes into the IPL on the back of an average domestic season where he’s not really set the world alight but as soon as he puts on his IPL gear and steps on to the big stage it just feels that he belongs. Then why the pain? Because he doesn’t do it bloody often. Being a Sanju Samson fan is a taxing job. The highs are as high as they could ever be but the lows really sap the energy out of you. There was a time when Samson could have been looked at as an ideal replacement of MS Dhoni, he bats and can keep wickets decently (yes he’s not a Dhoni but who is?) and more importantly, the talent is just too evident to ignore.

When Sanju Samson bats you don’t see how much muscle was put into the shot, you don’t ask how much power was wielded by the willow you just stare with amazement at the class and timing of the batsman that doesn’t really need brutality to score 100s in T20s.

The innings that Samson scored against SRH mimics the innings he had last year as well at the start of the tournament. Sadly for him(and us fans), his form had fizzled out after that (just like many times before in other IPL seasons). Could this be the launchpad that everyone has willed Sanju to get on ever since he stepped on the big stage at IPL or could this another one of the many flashes in the pan for Sanju?
