Sanju Samson was included in India's squad for the ODI series against South Africa.

Sanju Samson was ignored by selectors for the Asian Games, Asia Cup and ODI World Cup. The selection in the India squad for ODI series has given Sanju a great opportunity to cement a permanent spot.

Sanju Samson returned to form with a 13-ball 35 against Puducherry in a crucial game of Vijay Hazare Trophy that kept Kerala alive in hunt for the knockout spot.

Samson hit 3 sixes and 4 boundaries as Kerala chased down 120 in low scoring thriller to retain top spot in Group A with five wins in six matches.
