Samson deserves to play at a higher level: Rajat Bhatia
Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) all-rounder Rajat Bhatia lauded Sanju Samson on Tuesday after the 22-year-old steered Delhi Daredevils to their first victory of the season with a maiden century in the T20 format.
Bhatia, who has featured in every single edition of the IPL without earning a national cap, said the wicketkeeper-batsman was an exciting talent and deserved to play at a higher level in years to come.
“He’s a terrific batsman,” said Bhatia. “I just feel it’s been quite some time he’s been playing in the domestic circuit and the IPL and he should have played more for India.
“I hope he’ll knock a few doors now. He’s a young talented player and it was an opportunity for him today and he capitalised on it unlike the last game where he failed to perform.”
